RACE RULES & GENERAL RACE TIPS
There will be USAT officials at our races to ensure the USAT Competitive Rules are properly enforced. The Competitive Rules are intended to provide for the orderly and consistent administration of events sanctioned by USA Triathlon and are not designed to establish standards of care for the safety of participants or other persons. Every participant, official, volunteer and spectator should consider all safety issues and make related decisions prudently without reliance upon the Competitive Rules.
Including relay team, cyclorun, beginner and aquabike details
WET SUIT INFORMATION
The swim will take place in a calm cove of Lake Guntersville.
Wetsuits may be worn and considered legal by USA Triathlon up to and including a water temperature of 78 °F. When the water temperature is greater than 78 °F, but less than 84°F, age group participants may wear a wetsuit at their own discretion, provided however that participants who wear a wet suit within this temperature range shall not be eligible for prizes or awards. Age group participants shall not wear wet suits in water temperatures equal to or greater than 84 °F.
We use IPICO electronic timing chips, body marking or temporary Sport-Tats, helmet numbers, bike frame numbers, wrist bands and bib numbers to insure we keep track of you during the race and provide you accurate results.

Photo ID Required
All racers, including relay team members, must pick up their own race packet
All racers will receive an envelope with a helmet number, bike frame number, bib number and Temporary Tattoos
All racers will receive an electronic timing chip on a velcro band. Relay Teams get one timing chip.
All racers will receive a wristband - this is important to wear throughout the event to enter all racer only areas
RETRIEVING YOUR BIKE AND EQUIPMENT FROM RACE TRANSITION
Be sure you still have your body marking or race bib number and the provided wrist band to retrieve your equipment from the race transition area
This area is controlled for your safety so we can insure only racers enter the area and take only their equipment
Racers will be allowed to retrieve their bikes after the last biker returns from the bike course or as soon as race staff feels like they can safely escort racers to their bike rack location without interfering with another participants race
There is an exit gate marked in transition - please look for this gate to retrieve your belongings - this gate is not typically the bike in / out or run out area, but a neutral location that allows those that finish early to remove items while others may not be finished racing
