This race is sanctioned by USA Triathlon. All USAT rules will apply. Find the Cycling Rules HERE. Please read the rules so you know what not to do on race day! (and avoid getting a time penalty) Some of the most important rules are:
Police Officers will be stationed at any corner where vehicles need to be slowed or stopped for rider safety. Their job is to monitor and control traffic (not athletes!). Volunteers will be positioned at all significant intersections. Their job is to encourage you and make sure you're going the right direction. RTB volunteers are rabidly dedicated to these tasks - follow their directions! Athletes are required to be alert and obeying all rules of the road to avoid any preventable mishaps on the course.
Bike Mechanics will be onsite on race morning to make minor repairs or adjustments for bikes in ride-able condition. Please bring a bike to the race that is prepared for race day. There will also be support on the bike course to help fix flats, make minor adjustments, or offer assistance back to transition. It's important that you're prepared to fix a flat or put a chain back on.
There will be an aid station on the Olympic bike course at approx mile 15.4 that will provide water, gels, and sports drink.
The Super Sprint and Sprint courses will be two loops around Deep Lake. The Super Sprint and Sprint Tri run course remains on the trail around the park and there is hydration at the start of the trail and the beginning of loop 2. The Olympic course will leave the park and travel on the road towards Enumclaw. The final 1.4 miles will be on the trail around Deep Lake. There will be aid stations at approx. mile 1.6, 3 and 4.8.
