Transition area and Course

Transition Area

The transition area will open at 5:45am and close at 6:45am. Mandatory race talk will be at 6:45am SHARP!! PLEASE get to the race early enough to get set up and out of the transition area on time so we can have a prompt start. Athletes may only have ONE parent or guardian in the transition area with them prior to race start. Racers must be body marked to gain access to the transition area. We will do our best to keep this area secure, however, Northwestern Medicine Delnor Health and Fitness Center and MMTT will not be responsible for lost or stolen items. Race volunteers with triathlon experience will be available to give kids some tips on setting up their transition space.

Swim Course

Junior (age 9-10) and Senior racers will be completing a 125-meter swim in the Fitness Center. Those athletes age 6-8 will swim 75 meters.  The swim will be done in a “snake” fashion with each swimmer swimming one length in each lane (a total of 5 lengths in a 25 meter pool for those swimming 125 meters). There will be lifeguards on duty as well as volunteers to make sure each swimmer completes the course in a safe manner. Swimmers will be starting the course one at a time at approximately 10-second intervals. Swimmers will be allowed to pass another swimmer.

The Elite racers and High School Championship racers will start in wave starts of 10 racers at a time and swim 15 laps. The racers will have a designated lane (shared with 1 other athlete) and swim down and back until their swim is complete. Counters will be at the end of each lane to let the swimmer know when they have completed their swim by lowering a kickboard into the water.  All athletes are reminded that it is their ultimate responsibility to count their own laps.

Bike Course

The bike course will be on neighborhood streets just north and west of the Fitness Center. We will have the Geneva Police Department volunteering at the many of the intersections as well as race volunteers along the route. The route will be closed to most traffic. However, all racers MUST adhere to instructions given by volunteers and police officers. In the event of an emergency, an ambulance may have to get through the bike course. Riders are expected to follow normal road rules. This includes staying to the right and passing on the left. There will be NO DRAFTING in the Juniors, Seniors and High School Championship race on the bike portion of the race.

***No rider will be allowed on the bike course without a helmet that is undamaged and unaltered and meets or exceeds the safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The helmet should be clearly labeled meeting these standards. …No exceptions!!  Safety is our number one concern for the athletes! 

Run Course

The run course will take place on the trail around the Fitness Center property. Volunteers and an aid station with water will be available on the course.
