Race Time Limits

We will end timing at 1:00 p.m., meaning that racers will have to be completed with their race by this time. This gives athletes ⅓ Iron athletes about 6 hours to complete their race, and all other racers 3-4 hours. This should be plenty of time, but if you cannot make the time cut off, please choose a different race distance.

  • 1:00pm all Runners must have completed the Run Course

Time Trial Start Details

To maintain social distancing we will be starting our races in a time trial format, allowing only a few athletes to start at once. We will then wait a little and then release the next athletes. This should allow athletes to spread out and maintain distance from one another on course. Here are the starting details:

  • There will not be a pre-race meeting. Please review the information in the athlete guide and race website for more information. 
  • You may ask questions of our staff as needed on race day, but please try to email or call us with questions in advance of the race. 
  • All races will start at the beachfront, with the exception of the duathlons, which start at the Run Out area of Transition. 
  • Race will start in waves, and each wave will take 15-30 minutes to start all racers. Please arrive at the beginning of the waves. 
  • All swim race segments will begin on land, and athletes will have to run or walk into the water to start their swim.
  • Athletes will line up in their starting corral, and the race starter will release 3 athletes approximately every 10 seconds. 3 athletes will be called forward; athletes may line up as they like. Once the 3 athletes go, the next 3 athletes will move to the start line, and so on. The starter will continue to release athletes 3 at a time until all athletes have started the race. 
  • Any athlete that misses their start time, will start with the next race wave. Please alert the starter if this happens to you. 

Start Times

Please arrive at your designated start area at least 15 minutes before your race begins.
