All team members don’t have to be present at the same time to check in. However, all members must check in individually for their assigned leg/segment during packet pick-up on Friday (12pm-6pm) or Saturday (12pm-5pm). Packets will not be available and no check-in is allowed on race day. Relay members will check in under their team name and pick up their individual packet. A photo ID is required. Any substitutions will be required to pay the $30 change fee, must be accompanied by another team member or team captain, and show USAT membership or one-day status.
A relay timing chip will be assigned to the swimmer at the athlete check-in. The relay chip fastens with Velcro and can be removed and exchanged. Relay team members must pass the chip to their teammate after completing their segment of the race.
To reduce congestion, only the relay team cyclist will have access to the transition area. Relay teams must pass the timing chip to their teammates in the holding areas just outside the transition area following each segment. The relay team cyclist may secure all personal items belonging to the swimmer and runner at the relay team's bike rack.
