RELAYS
For those who prefer to race one element of the triathlon or duathlon we offer a relay division for our sprint, Olympic & half distance triathlons and duathlons. Relay teams consist of three (3) members (1 swimmer, 1 biker, 1 runner), each member will complete one segment of the race (2 members for duathlon teams). Each team member will exchange their timing chip bracelet at their assigned bike rack. There are NO age groups in this division.

AWARDS
All finishers will receive a handsome finisher medal* and the top three in each division will receive custom awards (including relay teams).

*Due to the flooding in Colorado we’ve been informed by FedEx our finisher medals will NOT arrive until Monday! Really bad timing…However, all finishers will be sent their medal in the mail next week.
