The Rookie - Rookies
This division is for the true rookies. This must be your first or second triathlon to participant in this division. There will be separate swim wave starts for this division.
The Rookie - Veterans
This division is for everyone that is not a "Rookie". Swim waves will be based upon age group categories.
The Rookie - Open
The open division exists for the fastest participants. The idea is to let the pros and elite age groupers compete against each other, regardless of age, to make the age group waves a little friendlier.
The minimum age to participate in this event is 12 years old.
Separate awards will be presented to the top 3 male and female in each age group, in both the Rookies and Veterans divisions, starting at 19 & Under and going to 75+ in 5 year increments.
The top three men and women in the open division will receive an award, as well as the overall male & female in the Rookie, and overall masters male & female in both the Rookie and Veterans divisions.
Finish Line Carnival
The finish line carnival is open to all participants and spectators. Participants will receive free hot food and drinks, as well as other treats. Food and drink for spectators may be available for purchase, and may be free at some vendors. Free water will be available for everyone.
