Weed update -
We are making a slight change to the layout of the swim course. You can review the changes and a new map on the Race Data/Maps page.
39th St, the main road along the Y which we use for the opening/closing section of the bike course, is being rebuilt with new asphalt. A little work remains in the stretch from “FG” to “G”. But for the most part, it is done. There are a couple spots from “FG” back to the main entrance of the Y which will be handled by the Road Commission prior to Saturday.
Let's look at a couple of basics to remember for yourself and your spectator or support crew for Saturday morning:
We are ready for Shermanator 2014. Some final notes before race day.
Please review the parking map. Athlete access to the site is off 38th St. From “G” Ave. There will be a large sign at the intersection to help guide you in.
There is a long walk with your gear from parking to the Rec. Cntr. for check in, and then a bit more of a walk down to transition. Arrive early. We start on time with first wave at 7:45. Pack your gear to make it easy to walk.
Review your gear today or tonight and make sure you are all set. Don’t wait until tomorrow morning to do that.
Duathlon, and Relays start with Wave 1. Aquabike athletes start with your age group.
We do not sanction the Shermanator with USAT, but we do use the USAT Age Up rule for continuity. Your age group placement is based on your age on December 31st. For example, if you are 24 tomorrow on race day, but turn 25 by the 31st, you “age up” into the 25-
Billy’s Bike Shop will do a quick check of your bike before entering transition. Bar end plugs is a particular point of review.
Breakaway Bicycles & Fitness will be on site to assist with any other last minute issues you may have with your bike.
We will have the wave breakdown posted tomorrow morning.
Water temps have been dropping. I wouldn’t be surprised that it will be around 70
by tomorrow morning. Wetsuits are allowed.
We will be offering same day on site registration tomorrow morning -
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow morning.
The updates from the 2o14 event will remain posted until we begin posting updates for 2015. These will help give you an idea of some of the things you should keep in mind as you prepare for our 2015 Shermanator
