Blue Green Algae Advisory
The water at Eagle Creek Park has been placed on a “high cell count advisory” for Blue Green Algae. THE BEACH IS STILL OPEN AND IT IS SAFE TO SWIM IN THE WATER. If you have a known skin condition, it is suggested that you switch to the duathlon, as Blue Green Algea can cause minor skin rashes. Athletes are advised to wear goggles while in the water. If you would like more information on Blue Green Algea, please visit www.algae.in.gov.

The event will be timed using the IPICO multi-sport timing tag system. Each participant will be given a timing tag that will need to be secured properly to the provided ankle strap. The ankle strap, with the timing tag attached, MUST be worn around your ankle during the duration of the event. If you are a participant on a relay team, the timing tag and ankle strap will serve as your relay "baton" and will be passed to each team participant as they finish their portion of the event.
Participants can see their times posted online after the event on our Results Page.
