Capital Of Dreams Triathlon Presented By Montgomery Multisport
|Date||Saturday, May 31 2014|
Main Staging Area and Transition Flow: The main staging area for the Intermediate and Sprint events will be on the riverfront at Riverfront Amphitheatre. The main venue encompasses the Riverfront Park to include the Union Station Train Shed.
See our Event Guide for more race details.
The race transition area is organized based on your assigned race number. The bike racks are marked by ranges of "7" numbers, beginning with 1 through 7 and so on. Bikes do not have to be racked in numerical order ON the rack, but must be placed on the rack designated for your race number range. Sorry folks, for safety reasons, no balloons or items may be attached to racks to help you locate your spot. Feel free to bring your sidewalk chalk.
Swim Course: Intermediate 1.5k / Sprint 400m
The Intermediate and Sprint swim course is a point-to-point swim starting from the Harriott II Riverboat.
There will be no moving up in swim order on race day. Pre-register by the Wednesday night before the race to get a spot in the swim order!!!! All registrants after that time will have the UPPER numbers and be starting at the rear, sorry, no exceptions.
Bike Course: Intermediate 40k / Sprint 20k Both distances will follow the same course with the Intermediate distance completing two loops. This is a flat course with very little elevation change! The course will be on city roads and managed by local police and volunteers. Make certain to follow their direction for a safe, enjoyable ride. Check out the map links below for your race.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT FOLLOWING USAT RULES ON THE BIKE COURSE: The return route from the bike turnaround directs bikers into the left lane and they are separated by vehicular traffic in the right lane. Please keep in mind that USAT rules apply as always to ride to the RIGHT in your designated bike lane. Many penalties were given out in 2013 due to this section of the course having bikers riding to their left.
Run Course: Intermediate 10k / Sprint 5k Take a great tour of historic downtown Montgomery. Plan on a mix of flat sections and gradual incline hills on these city streets. See map links below for elevation information.
