Finish Line Medical Tent- Presented by Medicine In Motion
The finish line medical tent is staffed by Dr. Martha Pyron who is board certified in Family Practice and Sports Medicine, Licensed Athletic Trainers who are trained to provide musculoskeletal injury assessment and first aid, and other nurses and medical assistants who are able to provide all race participants with excellent care on site. The medical tent is and supplied to treat common triathlon related injuries and illness, and to begin stabilization procedures for more severe problems. Any race participant who requests assistance will be evaluated in the medical tent and treated based on event protocols for athlete medical care. The medical team may authorize transportation to a nearby hospital in case of serious injury or illness, but will likely be able to manage any medical need an athlete will have including stitches, splints for injury, and bandages.
Water Temperature & Quality
The water temperature will be around 80-84 degrees, so the swim will not be wetsuit legal. Information regarding the water temperature will be posted in the news section of this website as the event date approaches.
Weather Contingency Plan
In the event of foul weather, the start time of this event may be delayed by up to 1 hour. Should the weather conditions be unsafe for the swim, this event will be changed to a bike-run with distances of a 11.2 mile bike and a 3.1 mile run. The duathlon will use a time trial start based upon the swim wave order. If the weather makes it too dangerous for cycling, the event will become a 5 Km run for all participants.
This event will use USA Triathlon Age Group rules.
