In order to qualify for the Fat Tire division, you must have a mountain bike with a minimum of 1.5 inch tires and upright handlebars. Competing in Fat Tire will make you ineligible for age group awards. There will be both a male and female Fat Tire divison.


The event will be timed using the IPICO multi-sport timing tag system. Each participant will be given an orange or black 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.

The Triathlons/Relay and Duathlon each have cut-off times. For safety reasons and city permit time limits we must follow the below guidelines. Anyone that cannot finish their event within the time frame must withdrawl from the competition.
