Movement Standards:

Swim: You may freestyle, breast-stroke, or side stroke, no backstroke. No flotation devices, flippers, kickboards, gloves, or anything else that would give an unnatural advantage.  (Goggles and Caps are allowed and recommend).  There is a 40 Minute Time Cap.  Every LENGTH not completed = 30 seconds added to your time) Estimated Time Swam by coaches at a moderate to fast pace: 32:00 Minutes.

You and your teammate may ONLY switch swimmers on the end where your judge is. We will not be allowing dive-in entrances.  If you are sharing a lane with another team, you must swim on your designated side.

Bike: You will leave the community on your 1:00 interval.  If you are not ready at that time, you will DNF the workout.  The bike will take you on about 3-4 Minutes of easy single-track, and then will climb up 3.69 miles to the top.  Once at the top you will turn around and begin the descent. Estimated time biked by coaches: 35-40 Min Climb, 8-12 min descent, total time between 45-55 minutes.

THE ROAD is LOOSE GRAVEL!! You will need to be courteous and aware of vehicles on the road. For the downhill portion, you MUST stay under control and stay on your side of the road.  There are many switchbacks, and failure to properly check your speed and control your bike will end with you crashing, and ending your day and your team’s day at the event.  RIDE UNDER CONTROL. We cannot emphasize enough the need for CAUTION on the way DOWN!!

Run: You will leave the community center on your 1:00 interval.  Trail is rolling singletrack.  If you are not ready at this time, you will DNF the workout.  To pass you must use an audible signal, and if you are the runner being passed, please allow the faster runner to pass. Estimated time run by coaches: 30-45.
