Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

You can wear anything that you're comfortable swimming, biking, and running in. Many people wear a swimsuit, then throw some shorts and a tshirt over it for the bike and the run. The only requirement is that you must wear a helmet when riding your bike!

We also do NOT allow headphones during any portion of the race. This is for your and other participants' safety and is in line with USAT standards.

Do I need a fancy bike?

No way! Most people use their beach cruisers, mountain bikes, and hybrids.

When can I check my bike in and set up my stuff?

Bike checkin is the morning of the race from 6:00am-6:50am. To make your checkin faster, we recommend that you make sure your tires are inflated before you leave home or bring your own pump. We will have a pump on hand in case you forget!

Is the pool indoors or outdoors?

The pool is outdoors at the Selby Aquatic Center across the parking lot from the YMCA gym.

I'm not good at swimming freestyle. Will I be ok?

Yes! You can use whatever stroke you want! And since you'll be doing laps in the pool, you can always take a breather at the wall or hold on to the lane line if needed. Lifeguards will be on hand for your safety and peace of mind too.

The only limit is that floatation devices such as kickboards and noodles are not allowed. Snorkels, while discouraged, are allowed. This is for the safety and comfort of other swimmers.

Is the pool heated?

February may not be warm for us Floridians, but at least the pool will be. The pool is always heated to a comfortable temperature suitable for exercise (between 78-80F).
