This division is for the true rookies. This must be your first or second triathlon to participant in this division. There will be separate wave starts for this division.
The Rookie - Veterans
This division is for everyone that is not a true beginner. Swim waves will be based upon the usual age group categories.
The Rookie - Open
The open division is exists for the fastest participants. The idea is to let the pros and elite age groupers compete against each other, regardless of age, and to therefore make the age group waves a little more friendly.
The minimum age to participate in this event is 12.
Separate awards will be presented to the top 3 male and female in each age group, in both the Rookies and Veterans divisions, starting at 19 & Under and going to 75+ in 5 year increments.
The top 10 men and women in the open division will receive an award.
Finish Line Carnival
The finish line carnival is open to all participants and spectators. Participants will receive free hot food and drinks, as well as other treats. Food & drink for spectators may be available for purchase, and may be free at some vendors. Free water will be available for everyone.
