J. A. Walters Family YMCA: 2455 YMCA Dr, Gainesville, United States
We will measure the total distance for 10 minutes in the pool, 30 minutes on a spin bike, and 20
minutes on a treadmill. All three events count equally towards the final score.
The athlete that goes the furthest distance in each segment gets the highest point score for that
segment. The maximum number of points for each segment is determined by the total number of racers.
Example, if the race has 23 athletes, then the fastest runner gets 23 points, next fastest runner gets
22, and so on. Then the points for each segment are added up. The athlete with the highest total
points gets first place overall. Complete all 3 races and be eligible for trifecta overall awards.
Age on race day must be 11 and up. Awards for male and female 19 and under, 20-29,
30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+. Age will be determined by age at which you start race #1.
The first heat of 5 participants will start at 8 am, with a new heat starting every 20 minutes.
Check in will begin at 7 am with a mandatory race day meeting at 7:45 am. No day of registration.
SWIM – 10 MINUTES
Each heat of 5 racers will start at the same time. A lap is equal to down and back and a length is equal
to half a lap. Racers cannot wear wet suits. Hands and feet must be uncovered. No paddles, gloves,
fins, boots, etc. Racers may touchdown to rest. Disqualification will occur if racers travel forward using
the bottom of the pool, lap lanes, or a flotation device.
TRANSITION 1 – 8 MINUTES
Racers will be given 8 minutes to go to the locker room, change into clothing for cycling and running,
get to the spin room, and adjust the seat, handlebar height, and resistance of the bike to what is safe.
BIKE – 30 MINUTES
Racers cannot bring their own pedals. Each bike has a bike computer that will measure distance by the
number of times the flywheel goes around. The maximum speed registered by the monitor is 120 RPM’s.
TRANSITION 2 – 8 MINUTES
Racers will be given 8 minutes to transition from the spin room to the treadmills. Racers may choose to
bring a change of shoes, water, and any nutritional products they would like to consume.
RUN – 20 MINUTES
Runners will choose a treadmill that has been reserved for the event. Runners may choose to set the
incline to receive a multiplier on their run distance. While the runner may change the speed during the
run segment, they may not change the incline. It must be set within the first 20 seconds of the run
segment. Any racer that adjusts the incline during the run will be treated as though the entire run had
been set at 0% incline. For every 1% incline, the measured distance run will be multiplied by 1.10. If you
run at a 5.5% incline, then your distance will be multiplied by 1.55. If you run at 10% incline, then your
distance will be multiplied by 2.00%.
