Any rider who has not repaired their bike by the time the Mop up vehicle reaches them will be considered as did not finish (DNF) for the cycling course and will be brought back to the transition area.
Competitor Age Assignment: Your age division is determined according to USAT Rules as your age as of December 31, the year of the event.

General Considerations for Each Course
The swim event is a 400 meter snake swim. After completing 100 meters in the each lane go under the lane line to enter the next lane. DIVIng is not allowed at the start. At the end of swim you may exit at the end of the pool or use the grab rails and steps at the finish end. If all competitors gauge their swim time correctly and line up in the correct order there should be little if any overtaking. If a competitor touches your feet let that swimmer pass then continue to swim. The pool is a 4-lane, 50-meter pool. The outer lane lines in lane 1 and 4 will not be used. This will make those lanes wider than normal and should aid in any passing that is necessary.
You must have your helmet on and chin strap in place before you exit the transition area and approach the timing point. Volunteers will monitor this and will delay you at the timing point. After exiting the transition area and passing the timing point you can only mount your bike at the Mount/Dismount Line. When returning to the transition area dismount only at the Mount/Dismount Line.
The Jefferson City Police Department will be at key, but not all intersections. Event volunteers with safety vests and flags will be at all intersections and directional points. Follow their directions on the course. Directional arrows should be found periodically on the course. A course map is enclosed. If you come upon a competitor with a mechanical issue or medical issue, advise the next volunteer or JCPD officer of the situation.
Exit the transition area following the "roped" chute to paved park paths. Follow signage and volunteer direction. Water stations will be 1/4 of the way and at the halfway - turnaround-point. Follow the same path and signage when returning to the finish line.
How to Get to the Event
If you are using a GPS system use this address: Ellis Porter Riverside Park, 320 Ellis Porter Drive, Jefferson City, Mo. 65101. NOTE: I would recommend that you NOT use Mapquest as it routinely will send you to Ellis Blvd and several miles from your designation. Google maps and Apple Maps seem to get it right.
In general, from the West on Highway 50 or coming from the South or North into Jefferson City on 63 or 54, take Highway 50 East to the Eastland Dr. Exit. At the end of the ramp turn left.
