Please review the information below, as it is very important for participants to know!
DIRECTIONS TO THE EVENT SITE
Red Bridge Park is located in Cicero, IN, just 30 minutes north of Indianapolis. It is located at 697 W. Jackson Street.
Arriving from Indianapolis-area:
- Take US-31/Meridian Street to 236th Street and turn right. Red Bridge Park is located just before crossing Morse Reservoir, on the right. You will need to proceed across the lake to the designated parking areas then ride your bike back along the pedestrian bridge to the park.
Arriving from Fishers/Noblesville-area:
- Take I-69/IN-37 north and turn left onto 191st Street. Turn right onto Cumberland Road and go north until Jackson Street. Turn left onto Jackson Street, and Red Bridge Park is located just over Morse Reservoir.
No vehicles will be allowed to park in the parking lot at Red Bridge Park. This is used as the Transition Area/Finish Line. Below are the options that participants may use to park.
Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to park, walk to Packet Pickup, get yourself set up in the Transition Area, and get to the Swim Start!
All participants must attend the pre-race meeting scheduled for 7:25 AM in the transition area. This meeting will review the latest update with the course and rules. All participants are strongly encouraged to be checked in and have their gear set up in the transition area before this time. Do NOT arrive to the race site at 7:25 AM, as it will be too late!
Teams may consist of 2 or 3 members. Teams will compete in a relay format (one swimmer, one biker, one runner). Teams will have a separate area in the transition area, so look for a sign on race morning. Each team must exchange the ankle strap with the IPICO timing tag on it.
The transition area is located in the parking log at Red Bridge Park. This area will be fenced off and only participants and race officials will be allowed inside this area. Bike racks will be set up with participants assigned to the racks by gender and age group. You must return your bike to the assigned rack before you begin the run.
The transition area is secured at 7 AM and will be disbanded at 10:00 AM. The race organization is not responsible for bikes and equipment left in the transition area after 10:00 AM.
THE SWIM START
We will have approximately 5 waves of swim start each with about 30-40 participants separated by 3 minutes each.
Be sure to give yourself enough time to walk across the pedestrian bridge to arrive to the swim start (~700 meters). First wave goes at 8:00AM.
We will also have an "elite wave" of male and female - for those athletes that feel they can realistically finish in the top 3 overall. The 'elite wave' will start athletes together before the age groups go off. You do not have to pre-register for this group - just let us know the morning of the event.
The overall results are still based on the fastest time for the course - meaning that a person that starts in an age-group can still be the overall winner if his time is faster than everyone else.
