Bradley Indoor Triathlon
The Bradley Indoor Triathlon will take place on Saturday, February 13th, 2016 beginning with late registration and packet pick-up at 6:30 AM and ending after the awards ceremony.
The first wave starts at 8AM, with the following waves starting at 22-minute intervals. Each race will take one hour to complete including time spent in transition. Each wave will consist of up to 6 individuals and teams, organized according to their own estimated running ability. The registration fee includes a race packet with a t-shirt, food/drink on race day, and inclusion in a raffle of various prizes provided by our sponsors.
RACE INFORMATION: The race consists of three timed events. There will be a 10-minute warmup period in the pool prior to each wave start. The event times are as follows: Swim = 10 minutes Transition 1 = 10 minutes Bike = 20 minutes Transition 2 = 5 minutes Run = 15 minutes Total = 60 minutes The swim will take place in the Markin center's 25 yard saline pool. Each competitor will start from a starting block or wall, and will have one of 6 lanes to themselves. Laps will be counted over the 10-minute swim and rounded down to the quarter-lap (12.5 yards) for scoring. Each competitor will have 10 minutes between the swim end and bike start. 2 minutes prior to the bike start, each competitor will be allowed to warm up and adjust their spin bike seat and handebars to their preferred fit. The bike will take place on identical stationary bikes. The exact bike model is not yet known, but will fairly compute distance using an algorithm which accounts for cadence and resistance. This computed distance, rounded to the nearest tenth of a mile, will be recorded for scoring. Each competitor will have 5 minutes between the bike end and run start. The run will take place on the Markin Center's three-lane 200m mondo indoor track. Spikes will be allowed, but must be 1/8" or shorter. Laps will be counted and rounded down to the quarter-lap (50m) for scoring.
SCORING INFORMATION: The scoring criteria is done on a time conversion basis. Distance will be recorded over the allotted time as described above for each discipline, and the resulting pace will be converted to a time over sprint distance (750m swim/20km bike/5 km run). The converted times of each event will be summed to produce a total time. Athletes will be ranked according to their total converted time over sprint distance.
Awards will be distributed as follows: Men's Collegiate: Champion, 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up Women's Collegiate: Champion, 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up Men's Open: Champion, 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up Women's Open: Champion, 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up Men's Team: Champion Women's Team: Champion Mixed Team: Champion
