Information Sessions / transition demonstrations

MANDATORY race packet pickup is on Saturday only. Race packets will not be available for pickup on Sunday. It is required that all racers fundraise a minimum of $50 to be eligible to pick up their race bib and take part in the triathlon. You can pick-up another racer’s packet with their approval, however that racer will need to make sure they get their wristbands and body marked on race day morning in the transition area.  

At packet pickup you will collect your bibs (running and bike), helmet sticker, timing chip, race shirt, and swag plus, get body marked, collect incentives, and put on your wristband. The mandatory wristband will let our volunteers on course know which course your child is racing! Please ensure they have the right color for the correct course!

Blue = Mini course, Yellow = Short course, Red = Long course

Bike Drop Off during Packet Pickup:  The option to leave your bike and helmet in transition overnight is available during packet pickup. Once you receive your packet, please affix the bike tag (bib) to the bike, bib sticker to helmet and proceed to transition area. Bike drop off is NOT MANDATORY. Do not leave other items in transition. Neither Landon School nor JUST TRYAN IT (JTI) are responsible for bikes left overnight.   

All packet pickup activities take place at the Landon School.

If you have checks or cash collected, please bring it with you to packet pickup.

Race Safety

Landon’s campus is under construction no spectators will be allowed on the course. All spectators will remain on Prindell Field throughout the race. Please take caution when moving about the campus. PLEASE OBSERVE SIGNS, FENCES AND VOLUNTEERS TO MAINTAIN SAFETY OF ALL.

The safety of our athletes, volunteers, and spectators is our primary concern.

  • In the event of inclement weather, the race will continue under the following circumstances:
    1. Lightning: The event will be postponed by 30 minutes. All racers and spectators will move to the gymnasium for shelter. If the lightning continues, the race will be cancelled.
    2. Rain: The event will NOT be canceled due to rain alone. If it is determined that the bike portion of the race would be unsafe due to wet roads, then the race will be changed to a swim-run duathlon. Athletes will be informed of such a change via announcements on race day.
    3. Tornado warning: The race will be canceled in the event of a tornado warning.
  • Racers must have a properly fitted bike helmet with secured strap that is worn at all times when riding the bike.  
  • Kindly remind your racer to listen to the volunteer’s instructions at all times
  • Ensure the Emergency information on the back of the running bib is correct

We kindly request that spectators remain off the course at all times unless guided by our invaluable volunteers. Thank you for your cooperation.
