TRI Race Information Schedule of Events Where to Stay

Hydration & Aid Stations

We encourage you to be as self- supported as possible with the hydration you may need on the bike and a hand-held water vessel for the run.  There will be (1) hydration table with small bottles on the SPRINT run course-you will pass twice. There will be (2) on the Olympic run course, one of which you will pass twice.

Port-O-Johns are located at swim Start, transition, at/near all run course aid stations and the Finish area.

Wet Suit Wave - On Race Morning

The USAT official will sample the water temperature and determine if it is wet suit legal. If the temperature is 78 or higher, a separate wave will be added for those who choose to wear a wet suit. These participants will not be eligible for overall or age group awards. There will be a signup sheet for this wave located at the packet pick-up tent.

Relay Team Instructions

Relay team members will check in individually to pick up their packet. Bring your ID and Bib number.

  • Each relay member will receive a bib with the team number on it. The runner is required to wear the bib.
  • Relay team timing tag will be picked up by the swimmer on the morning of their heat.
  • This timing chip will be shared/transferred between all team members. Team Members MUST transfer the Velcro strap & timing chip while inside the Transition Area. The strap and chip MUST be securely fastened around your ankle before exiting transition. Place chip on the outside of ankle.
  • This chip will have the corresponding Relay team bib number printed on it.
  • Chips MUST be returned to the Outer Banks Sporting Events volunteer in the Finish chute.


Your finish time is your bike-in time to transition. Return the timing chip to the volunteer at the Aquabike Finish Tent, then proceed through the finish arch to collect your finish medal.

Finish Line Etiquette

At the Finish Line athletes should be aware of the other athletes finishing behind them. Please do not congregate in the chute. 


After you finish your race, we know you want to celebrate.  In these cautious times, we plan to have a food to go bag for all finishers.
