Monday - July 28, 2014
Special thanks to all our great sponsors this year and especially to our 2014 presenting sponsor -Zeigler Auto Group. A number of our sponsors will be on site again this year including Breakaway Bicycles & Fitness, Sub Aquatic Sports, Billy's Bike Shop, Gazelle Sports, and Agility Physical Therapy & Sports Performance. The Trikats, our regional multisport club, will be out in force this year along with the club's hospitality tent.
Weed update - what weeds? Yes there are a few in the lake but nothing like what we had to deal with last year. The Lake Association weed control program is doing the job well.
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:
-No dogs are allowed on premises. Assistance dogs of course are welcome
-The Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Center is not open prior to the race for venue visits or training since we have children enjoying camp up until race day.
-All athletes use the 38th St parking area. Remember-there is a long walk to the Rec Cntr. and then from there down to the waterfront.
-Spectators arriving up until 7:45 should also use the 38th Street parking area. Spectators arriving after 7:45 must use the parking area accessed just north of the YMCA main entrance on 39th St.
-Handicapped accessible parking is available by the Red Cntr But anyone needing thatmust arrive prior to 7:45.
