Campus Access and Parking

Parking is not available on site the morning of the race. Please be courteous as you park in the surrounding neighborhoods and allow for enough time to walk to the Club from your space. If you require handicap parking, please contact Race Director, Deborah Povinelli.

Racers should be checked into transition and ready to go at 8am. Transition will remain closed through the duration of the race for the safety of the racers. Please be patient if your child finishes early as we can not make exceptions.

Party Zone Information

Food, coffee and awesome fun with A Squad Entertainment will be available in the Party Zone. Additionally, we will have some JTI gear and merchandise. Stay after the race and play games, meet and mingle with other racers and their families, and enjoy your child’s outstanding accomplishments!

Bathrooms are located inside the Club.

Race Safety

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:

  • Lightning: The event will be postponed by 30 minutes. All racers and spectators will move to the Rosemary Room in the basement of the Club for shelter. If the lightning continues, the race will be cancelled.
  • 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.
  • Tornado warning: The race will be canceled in the event of a tornado warning.

Racers must have a properly fitted bike helmet with securing strap that is worn at all times when riding the bike.


  • Our race is 100% outside.
  • Racers start in waves and are naturally socially distanced.

We kindly request that spectators remain off the course at all times and only cross
as guided by our invaluable volunteers. Thank you for your cooperation. If you
choose to view the swim from the playground, please be aware that you may be
stuck there for a while, as crossing back to Party Zone will be limited.
