FAQs for the Delta Lake Triathlon

1. What if I am a really slow swimmer? Will you pull me out of the race?


        A. NO. No cut-off times. Period.


2. If I experience issues in the swim, can I continue my race?

       A. Yes. You are permitted to hold on to a kayak or boat until you recover, you can flip over on your back and rest, and you can wear a personal swim buoy if desired. The kayak    CANNOT move you forward, you must complete the swim on your own. You are welcome to continue with your race as scheduled.

3. Why is your NO dog policy so strict?

        A. A race is not a place for the family pet.  This is for the safety of our participants, their families, and your dog as well.  1. Delta Lake State Park does not allow dogs in the beach area which is where the race is held.   2. If you have never been chased, wildly barked at, or bitten by a dog while cycling or running then consider yourself one of the lucky ones.  3. Dogs and bikes and runners do not mix and to eliminate any fear,  or the possibility of accidents, we insist that dogs not be brought to the race site.  4. Your dog may be very well-behaved, but this is not the place for them.  Thank you for your understanding and for enforcing this with your family and friends.


4. Can my friend run alongside me to pace my run and keep me company?

       A. NO. No-one other than registered athletes on the course.


5. Will you have aid stations on the run course?

            A. Yes. One at each mile. They will be stocked with water, Hammer Nutrition Gels, and HEED.


6. I may need to walk some of that run course. Will the aid stations and finish line still be up?

                A. Yes. NO cut-off time. Period.


7. I registered really early and want to change my distance or defer to next year, can I do that?

              A. Yes. You must contact Tonia Wilson directly via email at or text 716-353-1288

              NO fee for changing distance

              See refund policy for deferral fees
