The first race (#1) of the series has been selected as part of the USAT SMW Regional Youth Race Series 2017
All other AG’s will start as the previous wave(s) finish, if not earlier. The swim course will be set up just off the shoreline with a single lane from the start to the finish area and the depth of this area should not exceed 4’-6’. There will be 4-6 certified lifeguards and medical staff on standby.
The bike/run course will be completely closed . No drafting! USAT sanctioned Race Official will be on site. The accessible areas will be staffed by the ELPD officers. This will be a 2 loop course for the 13-15 that has minimal difficulty (one incline) but has several turns for the out and back course. AG 11-12 on the same course but on an out and back format.
The additional AG’s will utilize a small portion of the 11-15 AG bike course but on a shorter distance.
All AG’s will share the same run course but have different distances as defined by the race sign up page.
