*Please note that you can only be registered under one of the categories below. For example, you cannot register for Clydesdale and age group at the same time. Participants must select their category when they register. Changes cannot be made to categories once the race starts. It would not be fair to other participants if we let people change groups once the results have been posted and they had a chance to see in which category would result in a higher standing.
Pro-Elite Category – Triathlon Only
Professional Male and Female racers or amateur elite racers wishing to race head-to-head with the best competition. Racers in this category only qualify for Overall awards and go with the first wave start.
Age Group Category
Age groups for both male and female start at 10-14 and go in 5 year increments to 80+. (10-14, 15-19, 20-24, …., 70-74, 75-79, 80+) By rule, athletes’ age groups are determined by their age on December 31st of that year. You age up, not down. This is so that you don’t change age groups in the middle of the year.

Fat Tire Category – Sprint Distance Only
This category is for those competing in on bikes with a tire width of at least 1.5 inches and have no aero bars (i.e. Mountain Bikes). This category is intended for beginners who have not yet made the investment in a good road or triathlon bike. It contains Male Fat Tire and Female Fat Tire categories.
Relay Category (2 or 3 person teams)
Male Relay, Female Relay, Coed Relay
*The same team members must be used for every race under the same team name to be eligible for series awards.
There is no category specifically for First Timers, however all First Timers should attend our pre-race clinic the day before the race. There will be more time for questions. We also highly recommend that all first timers, and those new to this course, pre-ride the course.
All finishers will receive a custom designed finishers medal declaring you as a triathlon or duathlon finisher! Collect them all! Very few races give finishers anything for sprint distance races, but we feel that finishing a triathlon or duathlon or any distance is a great accomplishment that you should be proud of. This is just another reason to race with Multirace.com!
In addition, awards are given to the top 3 finishers in all categories. Special awards will be given to the Top Overall Male, Top Overall Female, Top Master Male (40+), and Top Master Female (40+). Those receiving overall and master awards are removed from their age groups, bumping everyone else up in the age group standings. There is no double dipping. If you qualify for overall, you cannot get another award for masters overall or your age group. Pro-Elite participants only qualify for overall awards.
Please stay for the awards ceremony if you are due an award. Unclaimed awards may be mailed if requested within 2 weeks after the event. You must pay $9 for shipping and handling. Go to the results of your race and click Mail next to your name to request your award. There is no other option to get an unclaimed award.
