REGISTRATION

Event Day Registration
There is no event day registration for any Towne Lake Triathlon events.

Refund Policy
We have a very strict no refunds, transfers, or deferrals policy. Much of what goes into producing an event like this is spent up front and offering refunds, transfers, or deferrals may effect the future of the event because funding is allocated early. Please do not signup unless you are sure you'll race and/or you're willing to accept the registration loss if you end up not racing, for whatever reason. Thank you.

Any changes made to the race are done because we have to, usually out of safety for our participants that arise after the race has been planned. We are triathletes too and do everything to create a better, safer, more enjoyable experience for all of you.

TOWNE LAKE YOUTH TRIATHLON SWIM START PROCEDURE

All youth competitors will stand next to their assigned spot in transition with their hand touching their race number that is on the transition rack. We will then call each transition row in order to lineup according to their number (lowest to highest) and proceed to walk the line to the beach start area. Once on the beach area the short course kids will go first followed by a short break after which the long course kids will begin. The short course kids will swim to the first buoy and back and the long course kids will swim to the second buoy and back. Once the children exit the water they will run to their bikes and take them out to the road.
