Description

The Old College Tri returns! We have A&M Aggies, TCU Horned Frogs, Texas Longhorns, Nebraska Huskers, Texas Tech Red Raiders, SMU Mustangs, North Texas Eagles, Rice Owls, Boomer Sooners, OK State Cowboys, King's Point Midshipmen, West Point Cadets and many others supporting their alma mater! BRING IT race day in your college gear and give it one more Old College Tri! 

The swim will be in the Lazy River. The swim distance will be 245 yards. Get ready to jump in and enjoy a push straight to the exit!   

TEAM COMPETITION: We will have teams for male, female, coed. This is not a relay. If you sign up a team we add all three disciplines (Swim, Bike, Run ) together and the team with the lowest time wins a team trophy. You can sign up as a team and still be eligible for overall and age group awards. This is just a fun way to compete with others and have bragging rights as a team champion.

40 Yard Dash: There will a 40 yard dash champion in each age group. Save a little so you can sprint at the end and be the sprint champion in your age group. First place Trophies for each age group champion 

WEATHER POLICY

In the event of inclement weather, the start time of this event may be delayed by up to 1 hour. Past this time, the even course may be shortened or altered to protect the participants.

If conditions turn unsafe, the event may be cancelled. Event changes and cancellations are at the discretion of the Race Director. 

We always strive to produce a full and safe sporting event, but sometimes the weather conditions can affect those plans. 

Considerable amount goes into planning a sporting event and we do so with the best intentions. Unfortunately, no one can control the weather and race directors are not the exceptions.

Our goal is to always produce a full event as scheduled and only modify these plans due to safety concerns some of which can be caused by weather conditions. 

Thank you for your understanding of these policies and we appreciate your participation.

TEAM COMPETITION!
Get a 3-person team together. THREE DIVISIONS: Male, Female, and Coed.
We will take the overall times of the three team members and the team with the lowest overall time in their division wins an individual and team trophy. THIS IS NOT A RELAY.
Each team member will do the swim, bike, and run. Team members are still eligible for overall and age group awards.
TEAM NAME: There can be as many teams representing the same college but we encourage coming up with a unique name. For instance, Nebraska used to be known as the Bugeaters so that could be a team name that still represents Nebraska…. If the team members all support different schools, then let the team captain decide who you will support….

40 Yard Dash: There will a 40-yard dash champion in each age group. Save a little so you can sprint at the end and be the sprint champion in your age group. First place Trophies for each age group champion
