Teams with more than 10 members may create additional teams.

The top 5 times of the male and female teams will be used to determine the winners.

*Co-ed teams must have at least 2 male and 2 female members. The top 2 male and top 2 female times, along with the next best time (male or female), will be used to calculate the co-ed team time.

amateur all-star class

If you feel that you are at the top of your age group class, you should register to be an Amateur All-Star. The Amateur All-Stars all start in the first wave. You will NOT be eligible for Age Group Awards as an Amateur All-Star. You will be eligible for All-Star Awards and you will still get your USAT points.

relay teams

  • There is only ONE packet issued to a relay team. Team members share the same number. The packet cannot be separated into parts.
  • ALL team members must be present at the time of packet pick-up to sign the event waiver. If this is NOT possible, then no portion of the packet may be released until all team members have signed.
  • All two/three team members get body-marked with the team bib number.
  • The plastic ankle strap is not needed, a relay team needs to have an elastic ankle strap instead.
  • The Swimmer wears the colored bathing cap and starts the race wearing the timing chip on an ankle.
  • The Biker has one bike frame number and one numbered sticker for the helmet. They take the timing chip as a baton hand-off from the swimmer, attaching it to an ankle.
  • The Runner wears the paper bib number on the front of the body and takes the timing chip from the biker attaching it to an ankle.
  • The timing chip on the elastic strap is the hand-off baton and MUST be worn on the ankle. NO times and NO results can be recorded if it is worn in any other fashion.
  • Relay teams are entitled to two and/or three each of the amenities - goodie bags, t-shirts, finisher medals. Volunteers will need to be alerted by the team members that the bib number represents a team, thus merits multiple items. (The runner only in the finish chute please!).
