HFP Racing Swim Start Procedure (Mini, Sprint, Olympic & Half)
As indicated in the above schedule each division will be called to the start line based on their age or division. We will send off each wave 3 participants at a time every 3 seconds.

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.
NUTRITION ON THE COURSE – VERY IMPORTANT
On the bike: For those competing in the Half distance duathlon or triathlon there is ONLY one aid station located at the end of the bike lap just before the entrance of the transition. These aid stations are “neutral” aid stations and will offer refill (Infinit Nutrition) for your bottles OR bike bottles of water. You may also provide a “SPECIAL NEEDS” bag (ask for bags during packet pick-up) with your specific drink (no glass) or other nutritional requirements. Granola bars, COKE, bananas and pretzels available will also be available. Special Needs bags will not be accepted after 7:00am on Race Day.
On the run: There will be Infinit Nutrition, COKE and Water in cups at Transition Exit, Mile 1 and Mile 1.55 of the out & back run course. Runners will pass by each station twice. Additionally, there will be granola bars, bananas and pretzels at Transition Exit aid station. There will be a Special Needs table at the Transition Exit aid station for your own nutrition.
All finishers will receive a handsome finisher buckle (size based on distance conquered) and the top three in each division will receive custom awards (including relay teams).
