Starting and finishing at the Lyons High School property, the run course will be a slight mixture of high school track, groomed, wide trail and road. Slightly rolling to flat and shaded most of the way.
The bike course will be predominantly flat believe it or not, with a grinding 6 miles that will bring you to expansive panoramic views of all the mountain ranges in each direction. What goes up must come down, so a fast straight descent, back to the flats. 1 and 2 laps for Powerman Classic and short athletes. 1 lap for the sprint who will turn off doing a short loop within the big loop.
Course cut off: 5:00 hrs. Raffle / awards will start at 12:30.
Open at 6:00am not before! in the parking area just outside the track area.
No Friends or Family members allowed in the transition area for any reason. ITU European style transition formats will be used wherever possible. If you are unfamiliar with this style of racking it is one long row. The race director and race officials will close the transition area 30-45 minutes before race start to ensure all athletes are at starting lines for mandatory course meetings and announcements. Once the transition area is closed, you will not be permitted back in before the race starts. Family members will not be permitted in for any reason.
In the event of inclement weather, we recommend you have warm, dry clothing outside the transition area to put on following your finish due to other athletes still being on the bike course. Thank you for your cooperation in following these rules.
You must rack according to your race number, based on the sequence numbers placed at the end of each row. Please remember racks will hold 7 bikes racked with the seat tip on support bar. Please be courteous to fellow athletes to ensure there is space for 7 bikes on a rack. The transition area is closed until all athletes are off the bike course. Any athletes removing gear from transition areas before the announcer or race director has officially opened the transition area will be DISQUALIFIED from the race! No questions asked. Your race number will be taken down and you will be disqualified. Sprint athletes this goes for you as well, you must wait until all the athletes are off the course and race officials open the transition area. All athletes deserve a clear transition.
There will be an aid station at the run in/out chute with water and electrolyte replacement. Athletes wearing their own chips, PLEASE remove your chips before re-entering the transition area and exiting again. This will cause a timing error. Run in/out and bike in/out chutes are clearly marked on the large structures at either end; it is your responsibility to go the right direction.
