Swim Waves:

All swim waves will be self select and will start in 3 to 5 minutes increments based on how many participants are in each category.  By self select we mean that you decide what wave you want to go in.  The system is designed to let the competitive swimmers go first, then the not so competitive swimmers.  It provides a safe environment where nobody has to get swam over like some events have happen a lot.  It works great, and allows both men and women that are faster swimmers to compete against each other. 🙂

Course Cut Off Times:

Triathlon Cut Off Times: Cut Off Time for the 1/2 Iron and all other events is: 3:30 pm. Runners should be starting their run back from the half way mark for the 1/2 iron at 1:45 pm or will be required to withdraw from the race.  Total time to finish is 8 1/2 hours.  Athletes wishing to finish after these times will be required to do so without their bib number on and without the support of the race. The duathlon is a run, bike and then run. The start of the run will be at the same time as swim for the equal length triathlon. Duathlon runners will do a mass start right outside the transition area to avoid crossing paths with the full triathlon athletes.

Run Event Cut Off Times:  Cut Off Time for the 1/2 Marathon, and all other running events will be the same as the half iron finishers.

Athletes’s Course Meeting and Swim Clinic:

Along with a complete course overview, BASE Training is offering a free swim clinic at the Ocean Shores Packet Pick-up at the Quinault Sweet Grass Hotel at 7:30 pm on Saturday July 11th. The clinic will be covering detailed information on Total Immersion swim techniques with emphasis on triathlon open water swims.  After a short presentation, we will have a chance to see a demonstration of Total Immersion swim technique from Coach Ryan in the hotel pool and you will have a chance to jump in a try out a few of the drills and tips for yourself.  So, bring your swimsuits and get ready to swim with greater efficiency and less effort.

Event Parking:

Last year we allowed parking at Albatross Ave SW right by North Bay Park.  Please note that parking will not be allowed this year on Albatross Ave SW.  There is plenty of other legal parking on the side of the roads in the surrounding neighborhoods.  There may also be parking this year on the baseball fields just due east North Bay Park for a nominal fee of $2.  The $2 would go to the city to help maintain the park and other areas.  However this is not 100% confirmed, so parking may be free as well.
