At packet pick up all athletes are required to show photo ID. NO ID, NO RACE, NO EXCEPTIONS. If registration is completed online, USAT cards are no longer required due to our registration system. Packet pick up and day of registrations (not registered online) must bring their USAT cards if they are members. Relay teams must either come together to pick up the packet or they will only be given their part of the race packet. No one may pick up another person's packet. Youth athletes without an ID must be accompanied by a parent/guardian with a photo ID.
Relay Teams (Long Course & Sprint only)
Relays are a great way to enter the sport, drag somebody new in, or grab up your besties and have a run at the course as a group. Relay teams can have two or 3 members. The relay team will be assigned one bib number: the swimmer will pick up the swim cap and timing chip, the biker will pick up the bike number and helmet stickers and the runner will pick up the bib number. Relay teams will transfer the timing chip and ankle strap at their transition spot in the transition area. Relay members don’t have to stay in that area during the entire race, but you must transfer your chip there! All three relay members will receive a finisher medal. (Please have a team members come to the finish for their medals). The top 3 relays will be awarded on the podium. At this time, all relays - Men, Women, or Mixed, compete against each other.
Clydesdale & Athena Divisions
Clydesdale and Athena divisions are available in the Olympic race for men weighing at least 220 pounds, and women weighing at least 165 pounds. There will not be a scale on site - this is on the honor system! If you've entered the open Olympic division and want to switch (or vice versa) you can do that anytime up to and including race day. Just let us know.
Half, Olympic, Sprint
Raise the Bar's Black Diamond Triathlon has an incredible resource of volunteers who support the athletes leading up to on race day. There are many athletes, family members, and community members that come out to help and we're grateful! They're easy to identify by their bright green shirt. If you or someone in your support crew would like to join them, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We work hard to make sure each volunteer is placed in a position they enjoy and works with their schedule and particular abilities. Are you a gifted heckler? The Strong, Silent, menacing type? Love being around food? We've got a spot for everyone. And we will feed you a meal too! To sign up to volunteer (or sneakily sign up someone else) CLICK HERE.
Spectators are an important part of the race-day make-up. Without them, who would cheer? Run back to the car for the helmet you forgot? Drag your smelly stuff back to the car after the race?
During the race spectators can enjoy the beautiful Nolte State Park that has a swimming beach, child's play area (which will be open!) public restrooms, picnic tables, and a great race to watch! Spectators can enjoy a hot meal for $6 per adult, $4 per child 10 and under if purchased during the athlete's online registration. It's $1 more on race day. (registered athletes and volunteers eat for free).
**Please remind your friends and family that only athletes are allowed in the transition area.
