Spectators

This will be an exciting event to watch, and there will be many opportunities to see the racers pass on their multiple laps of the bike and run courses. During the draft legal events for the 14–15 and 16–19 age groups, athletes will be trying to form packs of cyclists in order to gain aerodynamic advantage over other racers.

Please be mindful of the lack of defined boundaries, such as curbs and sidewalks, along much of our bike and run course, and stay out of harms way as the racers pass.
