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. Each bike rack ROW is also marked with a sign to help you find your row as you complete your swim-to-bike and bike-to-run transitions. 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.
The Olympic and Sprint swim courses are point-to-point swims starting from the Harriott II Riverboat. Course buoys are placed to keep racers on course.
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 starting at the rear.
The swim will be conducted in a time-trial fashion. Race numbers are assigned by estimated swim time. Bike-Run racers will be advised when they can leave on the bike, as soon as the first swimmer enters the transition area.
Bring your wetsuit. The water temperature in early May is historically near 70F. 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.

Olympic 40k | Duathlon & Sprint Tri 20k
Both tri distances and the duathlon will follow the same course with the Olympic 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: 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 you will still ride to the RIGHT in your designated bike lane.
Olympic 10k | Sprint 5k
Duathlon First Run 2.5k & Second Run 5k
The course tours historic downtown Montgomery with an iconic finish through the tunnel to Riverfront Park. Participants in the Olympic distance will complete two loops, beginning the 2nd loop as you loop around the tunnel to Riverfront Park and proceed back on the same course as your 1st loop.
