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.   Is it ok if we bring our dog?

***Dogs are prohibited from being brought to the race. The Onondaga County Park does not allow dogs in the park during special events.  If you, or any family member, or your spectators, bring a dog to the race, we will disqualify the athlete.  NO refunds.

        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.   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.  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.  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.  Is it ok if I walk my bike up some of those hills?

A.  Yes. 


6.  Will there be a place I can change clothes between the swim and the bike?

 A. Yes.  There will be two changing tents (Male & Female with side walls inside transition)


7.  What if I am a really slow cyclist and those hills slow me down even more?  Will you pull me out of the race?

 A. NO. No cut-off times.  Period.


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

A.  Yes.   3 with port-a-johns.  An aid station in transition and at approximately every mile stocked with Hammer Nutrition products, Coke, water, chips, Pickle Juice, candy, and gummi bears.


9.  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.
