Is it a wave/group start?

No, our races are unique with a time-trial start. Every few seconds a racer enters the water which allows for an easier, spaced out swim. USAT studies have shown that the time-trial start is the safest way to begin the swim portion. It also helps ease congestion on the swim/bike/run courses.

Yes, there will be port-a-johns in the transition area, as well as a various places in our race site area.
