TRANSITION AREA NOTES
The race transition area is organized based on your assigned race number. 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.
400 Meter Sprint | 1100 Meter Olympic
The swim takes place in Cheatham Lake, part of the Cumberland River system. See the swim map for layout and be sure to listen to race staff instructions at the swim start should there be any changes to course design on race morning.
The swim will be conducted in a time-trial fashion. Race numbers are assigned to clubs/teams then by estimated swim time for non club members. A racer will enter the water approximately every 3 seconds, with relay teams and aquabike starting by swim time mixed in with individuals. Course buoys are placed to help racers to stay on course. To assist you in determining your swim time, follow this pace chart provided by US Masters Swimming.
There will be no moving up in swim order on race day. The race order is pre-assigned and you may move back in the order if you so choose.
