Will the race be "wetsuit legal"? Yes, the forecasted water temperature is 68. Need a wetsuit? We recommend Blueseventy.com. The 20% CALTRI discount code helps a lot.
How does a seeded, rolling swim start work? A seeded, rolling swim start is used as a swim safety feature to minimize athlete contact in the water. Athletes self-seed based on their projected swim time with faster athletes near the front and slower athletes at the back. An athlete’s race time starts when they cross the timing mat shortly before entering the water. Staff and volunteers are in the staging area with signs and will assist with the process.
Can I wear headphones during the race? Run? No. It is not safe because it could prevent you from hearing other athletes near you or directions from volunteers and staff.
Is there Saturday packet pickup? No. Race day packet pickup starts at Sunday at 6 AM. Only the athlete can pickup their registration materials. Not a friend, spouse, coworker or relay team member. After an athlete receives their packet they can proceed to the transition area.
What is Sunday's race schedule? LINK
What is the parking situation like? Parking is free at the race venue.
What should I expect from a "socially distanced" race? World Triathlon COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines for Event Organizers guidelines combined with those from the state and local agencies will be in effect. We are bending over backwards to give this race the best possible chance of happening. Athlete precautions include:
Should I bring my cheering section? Sadly, not for 2021. Please explain to your friends and family that we need to minimize the impact on the community and participation is exclusively athletes, volunteers and staff.
What will the bathroom situation look like? As always, portable toilets will be available. Disinfectant wipes and solution will be available to wipe door handles, toilet handles, bathroom faucet handles, etc. Race staff will clean bathrooms several times during the day.
How will the award ceremonies be conducted? Top 3 overall awards ceremonies for each event (M/F) will be conducted. Please consult the race day schedule for times. Athletes will be required to wear masks and we will maintain 6' of distance. Note: Cal Tri Events races do not include age group award event ceremonies. With 14 events and up to 20 age groups it isn't practical due to time constraints. All Cal Tri Events participants are eligible for pride and prizes in the Grand Prix USA.
