2013 Day of Race Timeline
- 6am-7:15am: Day of Race Registration (limited event shirts available)
- 6am-7:45am: Body marking, bike helmet check and equipment set-up.
- 7:40am-8am: All 6-8 year old participants report to the swimming pool for their timing chips, heat and lane assignments.
- 8am: Triathlon begins with 6 year old girls swimming first. All swimmers, all ages, need to report to pool by 8am. Racers will get their chips immediately before entering the water.
Participants are responsible for counting their swim, bike and run laps. Parents and spectators may assist with counting, but it is ultimately the participants' responsibility. If a participant does not complete the correct amount of laps, they are not eligible for place awards.
The swim is located in the indoor 25 yard Centennial Pool. The pool temperature is approximately 83 degrees. Children must be able to swim the complete distance independently. Children can stop and rest at the walls. Swimming heats will be divided up according to ages, 2 people per lane, parallel swimming. 6 year old girls will go first.
Longmont Kids Only Triathlon Swim Start Procedure
This is a pool swim. There will be volunteers counting your laps, but ultimately you are responsible for counting your own laps. Credit cannot be given for extra laps completed.
Viewing the Swim
There will be a designated area for spectators to allow for a smooth exit for all swimmers. Upstairs in the Observation Room or along the pool deck by the blue railing. Please make sure your fans watch from the designated area
Timing chips are handed out in the pool area just before your swim start to eliminate participants accidentally walking across timing mats. Timing chips are on a comfortable Velcro & neoprene strap, and must be securely fastened to the left ankle. They may feel a little loose once you get in the water – this is normal – they will tighten back up once you get out of the pool. Timing chips are given out right before the swimmer enters the pool. If a timing chip is lost, the participants’ family will be charged $99 to replace the chip.
6-10 Year Olds
Swim is not based on estimated swim times, only on age and gender. We will try our best to keep only two kids per lane, same gender. All 8 and unders need to report to the pool deck at 7:40am to be lined up for their swim. Once they are lined up, they will be walked around the pool to where the diving blocks are located. There, they will be given their timing chip that they will need to wear the entire event. Each lane of swimmers will be individually started. Once the swimmers in a lane are finished and they have left the pool, two more youth will be started.
11-17 Year Olds Estimated Swim Times
The swim has been seeded to go from slowest swimmers to fastest swimmers, in the appropriate distance. All heats are seeded according to predicted swim time, so you will be swimming with participants of similar ability. All lanes will have two swimmers; genders may be mixed due to estimated swim times.
11-12 year olds will start after the last heat of 10 year old males exits the pool. Be ready to line up according to estimated swim times when the 10 year old females begin their swim. Hang out in the pool area so you can hear all announcements.
13-17 year olds will start after the last heat of 12 year old males exit the pool. Be ready to line up according to estimated swim times when the 12 year old females begin their swim. Hang out in the pool area so you can hear all announcements.
The bike is a 2 or 4 loop course depending on the age designated distance. The bike course is on neighboring streets with plenty of viewing and cheering sections. All participants must have an ANSI/SNELL approved BIKE helmet strapped on their heads for the entire ride.
Transition Area Information
The transition area is open 6am-7:45am. Bike set-up will only be allowed before 7:45am. Bike placement within the transition area is on a first come, first served basis. Parents are only allowed in the transition area before the race begins. After the race starts, parents may only enter transition area if their child becomes injured. Bike helmets and shoes much be secured before existing the transition area. As the age groups begin to finish, there will be escorted opportunities for participants to enter the transition area to remove belongings.
