TRANSITION AREA NOTES
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 are point-to-point swims 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.
Bring your wetsuit! The water temperature in late April is historically 67F, but look for updates on your pre-race email race week.
USA Triathlon Wet Suit Rules:
Article 4.4: Each age group participant shall be permitted to wear a wet suit without penalty in any event sanctioned by USA Triathlon up to and including a water temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit.
When the water temperature is greater than 78 degrees, but less than 84 degrees Fahrenheit, age group participants may wear a wet suit 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.
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.
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.
Please be aware there is a 3hr45min time limit for the intermediate race. This race is in an urban setting in downtown Montgomery, which is a great atmosphere but also requires we limit the allowed time to finish. Anyone that needs to can change to the sprint race as a result of this limit, pre race or during the race. Just notify race staff of your change.
