***Race With a Friend™***
Important Information About Race With a Friend™ - applicable for adult races only
Will be turned off on 3 Wednesdays prior to event (8/30/17) so we may process numbers for Race With a Friend. This feature will not be available for registration after this date.
THIS IS NOT A RELAY. For two separate individuals to do the exact same race together.
All Race With a Friend participants are eligible for same set of awards as other participants including other division racers (i.e. - overall, age groupers, clydesdales, athenas, physically challenged) who start in separate waves.
Race With a Friend™ (2 People) - Pick a partner and compete together!! You can pick a friend, partner, family member, or first timer. "You and a Friend" will be assigned numbers next to each other and placed in the same wave start time (last wave assignment) for the race! Have you and your partner do the following:
When registering online, you will be the "Team Captain", your partner/friend will be the "Team Member"
The "Team Captain" will register first, creating a "Team Name", "Team Password" and paying the full registration fee (discounted savings of 20%).
The "Team Captain" then shares the "Team Name" and "Team Password" with their partner/friend, and the "Team Member" will then register for the race. If you and/or your friend/partner/first timer happen to belong to a club, do select this from the club drop down list as well so as to score for your club your points in the Club Challenge Program.
The "Team Member" will choose the "Team Name" from a dropdown, and must enter the "Team Password" to register.

Course
Duathlon - First Leg Only. 1.75 Mile Run. Out and Back. Starts at boat ramp area.

Swim - 1/4 Mile - Triangle. Lake Swim in the Crystal clear waters of Marsh Creek State Park. Starts at boat ramp area.

Expected water temperature around 72 degrees. Piranha owned events are now wetsuit legal!! Water temperatures are taken on race morning. Management may refuse wetsuits in the event water temperature is above 82 degrees.
Swim Cut Off Rule. All participants are expected to be able to complete the swim discipline maintaining a steady consistent stroke and able to maintain on course. Lifeguards are provided for emergency situations and to prevent swimmers from drowning. Any swimmer who is in constant need of aid from lifeguards along the swim is considered to be a hazard to themselves and other swimmers and has not prepared properly for the race (this includes breaks, and redirection on course). If a lifeguard at any point feels an athlete is taking too much attention, the lifeguard reserves the right to remove the athlete from the race. This removal will result in a DNF (Did Not Finish) from the entire race (the athlete will not be allowed to compete in the bike or run) at which point athlete must hand in their timing chip to lifeguard or designated staff person.
