Flow of event:

Check in – Cramer basement level (1hr+ before start)

Swim- rec center, bring swimsuit, TOWEL(!), change of clothes. A warm up lane will be available at all times. Post swim, change and then walk over to Cramer Hall 010 where the bikes will be. A volunteer will help you get your bike from transition and set up on the trainers.

Bike- Cramer Hall 010. Bring sweat towel, fluids, and make sure your bike does not have very heavy treads or knobby tires. These are not compatible with the computrainer. 

Run- Meet near the check in table. Run starts outside of Cramer hall for 3 loops on the Marquette Mile.

This event is USAT sanctioned! It's a qualifier for Age Group Nationals. So dust off the racing flats and get ready for this sprint race.

Swim- 500 yd; Bike- 16.09 km (10 miles) via lab grade computrainer; Run- 4.83 km (3 miles) outside
