Most details are the same as last year but there will be some changes around the start, finish and transition zones. Stay tuned for more information. Registration is live now. Remember the registration deadline for getting a T-Shirt included is midnight May 26 – after that date you may purchase a T-shirt with your registration. Day of Race Registrations have an extra fee so make sure you register early.
Thanks for taking part in Zett’s Tri today. The results have been updated and posted on Webscorer.com.
Changes from the Preliminary Results.
1) Bib #115 had start time corrected to fix starting in the wrong wave.
2) Bibs #151,152,153 are hopefully now attached to the correct name
3) Relay teams now have correct split times. One relay team had the innovative idea of all wearing the same bib number which masked who completed each leg. An unfortunate side effect was the timing software got confused and dropped all leg 2 split times for relay teams.
I do know there may have been some people who started in waves behind those they registered in. The results currently do not correct the time penalty they incurred. If the participants want to let me know, then I am open to updating the times. As far as I can deduce these did not effect any podium positions.
If you want to take advantage of the $15 Junior and $30 Adult registration rates you must pre-register by midnight Saturday June 3. After that time both fees go up by $10 till the time registration closes at 15 minutes before the start. If you do plan to register (or make payment on a preregistration) on Sunday morning please leave yourself time as the registration and payment desk will definitely close on time. The on-line registration will continue to work right up till 15 minutes before race start, but payment must be completed by then also.
Payment and Registration desk opens at 7:30 am and bib pickup is available after 7:45 am.
The race is being timed with Webscorer and live results should be available on the Web. Go to Webscorer.com in your browser and look under “Find Races”/”Find Results” after the race has started. You may want to select sport Triathlon to narrow the list down a bit.
A better way to view the results is using the free iOS and Android app which can be downloaded before the race.
This will make it easier to follow the timing splits at the end of the Run and Bike legs as well as the Final Results.
Amy went out yesterday and rode a mountain bike around the running course and then the mountain bike course. This time with the camera mounted on the handlebars it gives an easier to watch video. Also they now show both courses completely.
The Triathlon Bike, Running and Potter’s Race Course Maps are now posted. In the top left of the map you can select a Satellite View if you are not familiar with the area. The Satellite view shows a few buildings on the course. Do not worry, either the buildings have been removed since the satellite went over, or the GPS course we mapped had minor errors. None of the courses go indoors!
We hope to have a revised Running Video posted by the end of the week.
We have been looking closely at the registration process and have made some more minor revisions.
Originally we needed payments to be completed before the preregistration fee increase deadlines. We have now extended payment deadlines for all preregistered athletes until 8:15 am for Potter’s Race and 8:45 am for the Sprint Triathlon Sunday June 4. The Day-of-Race Registration also closes at these times. These are the times that our registration data-bases is transferred to the timing system as a Start Lists.
The payment and registration desk will be manned from 7:30 am Sunday June 4 outside Room B-3 at Nevada Union High School. This is located on the main entrance/exit loop to school and is just down the hill from the parking lots.
You can pick up your bib on Sunday morning from 7:45 am till Race Start. Only registrations that are complete (i.e. paid in full) will be able to pick up bibs. Very late bib pick-ups will need to confirm with the Starter that they are not marked as Did-Not-Start (DNS) in order to appear in the results.
The separate Elementary School Category has been eliminated and the Middle School Category now includes anyone who is 8th Grade or younger.
The Day of Race Registration and payment for Potter’s Race will now close at 8:15 am, and the Sprint Triathlon at 8:45 am, rather than the originally announced time of 8:30 am.
Registration for the 3rd Annual Zett’s Tri Race is now available on-line. At present we can only accept payment by cash or check. Remember that registration fees increase significantly after midnight on Thursday June 1.
Sorry about the 8 day outage of the web site. A utility power failure caused the original problem but unfortunately the automatic recovery had not been fully tested. Murphy’s Law meant this happened while I was in Iceland and unable to manually intervene!
