Overall awards will go to the top-3 men and women. In the Sprint we will award top 5 in 5 year age groups, and the top 3 relays. The Super Sprint will award top 3 in 5 year age groups. The award ceremony will begin when the majority of the field has finished for each race at approximately 9 AM. All finishers will receive a Finishers Medal
Relay team must consist of at least two members (one person CAN NOT compete in all three legs of a relay). A relay team will be assigned one bib number: the swimmer will pick up the swim cap and timing chip, the biker will pick up the bike number and helmet stickers and the runner will pick up the bib number. Relay teams will transfer the timing chip and ankle strap at their transition spot in the transition area. Relay members don’t have to stay in that area during the entire race, but you must transfer your chips there! All three relay members will receive a finisher medal and a t-shirt. (Please have a team members come to the finish for their medals). Sprint Relay only.
The race will have an incredible group of volunteers who support the athletes leading up to/on race day and are easy to identify by their bright green shirts. If you or someone in your support crew would like to join them, please email Patty or fill out this form. RTB Events will work to make sure they are placed into something they enjoy and works with their schedule. And we will feed them breakfast too!
During the race spectators can enjoy a full Pancake Breakfast for a donation. Breakfast will start about 8:30 AM. The park has a kids play area with a pirate ship to climb on, and a nice beach and dock available to enjoy. There will also be vendors in the park to chat with. Please remind your friends and family that only athletes are allowed in the transition area.
If you end up with your chip after the race, please return it to Raise the Bar Events. There is a $20 fee for all chips not collected within 10 days. Please mail the Timing Chip, and a paper with your name and race number in a padded envelope to the address below: Raise the Bar Events 15423 SE 272nd St. Suite #107, Kent, WA 98042.
