Hello Eastside Kids Triathlon Participant and parents!
Thank you for signing up! We are in the final stages of race prep and are very excited for Saturday. Below you will find some important information to help you prepare for your race.
IMPORTANT PACKET STUFF: Every participant must have a photo ID. Youth athletes without an ID must be accompanied by a parent/guardian with a photo ID. Great news- pre-registered athletes (that is you!), do not need to show USAT card or receipt due to our registration system process. Only Photo ID is needed at pick up.
Packet Pick Up (two options):
Friday, July 5 4:30pm-6:30PM at Lake Sammamish State Park near Sunset Beach
Saturday, June 30 5:00- 8:10 AM Packet Pick up at Lake Sammamish near transition at Sunset Beach (have your or parents photo ID out and ready to speed this up). Once the adult race begins, the Kids Triathlon packet pick up will move to the Kids transition area between the playground and beach.
We think there will be extra shirts for sale at $10 per shirt. Credit Card, cash or check accepted. If you pre-purchased a shirt, you will get that when you check in either Friday or Saturday.
Parking: You will need a Discover Pass to park at Lake Sammamish State Park. To purchase one before race day, follow this link. We suggest that you purchase ahead of time due to bike traffic at the entry and the chance that the park rangers are not at their station. If you are planning to enter the park after 6:40, please be aware that the adult triathletes will be exiting the park on their bikes and will continue to do so until about 7:30. There will be delays getting cars into the park so please plan accordingly.
Race Day Schedule:
5:00- 8:15 AM Packet Pick Up and Day of Registration (You'll find this at adult registration until 6:30, then we'll move Registration next to the Kids Transition area near the south end of Sunset Beach)
