Following is a list of equipment you will need to participate:
- For the Swim: Swimsuit & Goggles. Note that in a real race many athletes elect to wear a tri suit, bike shorts or whatever they will bike and run in during the swim so they do not have to spend time changing during the transitions.
- For the Bike: You will need to bring your own bike. The bike MUST HAVE slick tires. Non slick tires damage our trainers, so they are not allowed. We will hook it up to one of our trainers and you can experience the bike portion using your own bike.
- For the Run: Running Shoes & Socks (Optional if you like to wear your shoes without socks).
- Towels to use during and after the event.
What to Expect:
Following is a schedule of events for what you can expect from the indoor triathlon:
- Arrive one hour prior to your wave.
- Check in (Drop your bike off, pre-stage your transition area)
- Everybody will be weighed with their bike. This is how we set the resistance on the bike trainers to make it fair for everyone.
- Change into your swim / triathlon gear.
- Warm up and get ready to have some fun.
- Participants Complete Their Waves: 15 minute Swim, 30 Minute Bike and then 3.1 mile run
- Post Race Refreshments and make sure to pick up your personal belongings.

What’s Included In Registration:
We do our best to keep our costs competitive, and to make sure you guys all get what you pay for we include the following in all our events:
- Freaky Swag for Freaky Races!
- A Fun & FREAKY Experience!
- Nobody Gets Left Behind! What cut off times? **
- Medals That Look AND Weigh Like you Accomplished Something BECAUSE YOU DID!
- Integrity! An Experience! It’s About All of Us! Focus On Always Doing Better!
** We can only do this where the forces to be (the permitting agencies) don’t have hard limits on when folks need to be done. Our Ocean Shores Tri & Foot Fest is a great example of where we can make this happen. We will do our best to accommodate everyone. However please understand that it is a matter of resources, safety, and available volunteers to accomplish this. Bottom line is, when we can, we will!
Wave Start Times:
You will reserve your wave start time when you register. They are available on a first come first serve basis. Waves hold up to 12 participants, and are available from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Waves starting on the hour, such as 8:00 AM, 9:00 AM and 10:00 AM are available for relay registration as well. Waves later in the day may not become available for registration until earlier waves fill up.
All swim waves will start in 20 minute increments and will keep going until our last wave at 5:00 PM, or until we are done with all athletes (Whichever is sooner). Waves will be up to 12 people large. The pool 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. Or for those that are new to swimming in an event to take their time and feel safe.
Course Cut Off Times:
There are theoretically no cut off times.
Packet Pickup Information:
Packet pick up will open Saturday before the event at 6:30am. Please remember to arrive at least 1 hour prior to your wave start. This will allow ample time for checking in, and remember you are weighed with your bike 😉
Start Area Check In:
Transition Area Check In times can be found in the “Weekend Schedule” listed at the top of this page.
TRANSITION AREA SECURITY: All athletes will be cross checked for their bib numbers and body markings for the race for permission to enter the transition area. Non participants, and/or anyone not body marked AND in possession of a bib will NOT be allowed inside the transition area. Absolutely NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE!
ATTENTION: Please do not check your bike in until you are ready to leave it there for the race. For security purposes absolutely no bikes will be allowed out of the transition area once they have been checked in until the events start. If you feel you need to warm up on a bike, bring your commuter bike, or another bike to ride, or warm up on your bike before you check it in. Just make sure you leave yourself enough time to get ready for the swim if you are doing the triathlon or aquabike. You will be able to enter the transition area before your event to check your tires, etc…
Please note parking instructions for race day! TriFreaks is not responsible for your vehicles should they be towed. And if they block the race they WILL BE TOWED! Plan ahead, park smart and leave yourself enough time take care of everything you need to take care of the morning of the race.
Use of Facilities After The Event:
After you are done with the event you are more than welcome to use the locker rooms to shower, clean up and change. The saunas, if available, will be open for your use as well.
Medical Aid Information:
While we will do our best to make sure there are no injuries and emergencies, life does sometimes happen this way. In order to make sure we can protect you as best as we can, here will on duty lifeguards at the pool and the local hospital will be on call for their EMT services for any emergencies.
