(Warm-ups: 6 to 7am, Start Time: 7:15am)
WHAT: All water biathlon starts with a half mile swim (18 laps) immediately followed by a half mile water run (with shoes, up to chest height, with waters under the surface). It is the perfect multi-sport event because it takes place entirely indoors. It’s a great workout that’s a lot of fun.
How does the race work?
The race is run in a heat format. Each athlete is seeded according to their estimated swim time. Swim times are projected on each entry form. Each heat will be made up of 16 people. Swim lanes will be made up of no more than 4 people to a lane. Swimmers will be started at 5 second intervals. After completing the ½ mile swim, athletes will go to their pre-assigned run lane where they will immediately put on shoes & begin their ½ mile run. This is a “draft legal” race. Run lanes are assigned according to the height of each athlete. The race is completed when the wall is touched after their last length of the run.
What are the Age-Groups?
Awards will be given in the following age-groups; Male and Female 12-14, 15-19,20-24,25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60 and over. The top three overall men and women finishers will receive prizes. All participants will receive specially designed boxers. (That’s right, Lawyer Landau is giving out BRIEFS to participants and volunteers !!!)
