Power of Pasco Sprint Tri - Teams

Description:

 

Date of Race - August 7, 2021

Format: 1/2 mile swim; 20 km road bike; 3 mile run

Course Description: The race starts with a brisk 1/2 mile swim in the Columbia River along the length of Chiawana Park in Pasco.

From the park we bike a total of 20 km on the roads as follows: head upstream on Court Street and through the Harris' farm (Say hi to the pigs, "oink, oink" and watch out for the chickens.), left on Harris Rd, which bends to the right to become Shoreline Dr, which takes a 90 degree right turn to become Burns Rd, up the little hill and take a left on Dent Rd, through the housing development, and back the way you came.

The 3 mile run is along the foot paths heading north (upstream) from the park, to a turnaround on Court St, and back to the finish in the park.

COVID SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: We will be following the guidelines from the Governor's office to keep everyone safe and healthy before, during, and after the race.  We expect 100% compliance from all race participants and volunteers.  Below are the main aspects of our Covid safety plan: (WE WILL SEND OUT AN E-MAIL A COUPLE DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT TO UPDATE COVID REQUIREMENTS LISTED BELOW)

  • Wear your face mask/face covering at all times before the race as you arrive for packet pickup, setting up in the transition area, and waiting to start in the rolling wave starting procedure. Keep your face mask/face covering handy in the transition area so that you can put it back on upon finishing the race.
  • Practice social distancing before and after the race.
  • In your packet, you will be provided with a disposable face mask to wear as you get ready to start the race.  Wear this mask as you walk to the start line and keep it on until just before your rolling wave starts, where there will be a garbage can to dispose of your mask before you start the swim.
  • The start of the race will be a rolling wave format, which starts with a long, socially-distanced line of swimmers waiting to get in the water. Please self-seed yourself in these waves such that the faster swimmers are in the earlier waves and slower swimmers in the later waves.  3 swimmers will start at a time, approximately every 15 seconds.
  • Again, you can dispose of the mask just prior to your wave starting, so there is no need to wear the mask during the race.
  • Upon finishing the race, please retrieve your face mask/face covering from the transition area and put it back on.  Keep it in place, except when you are drinking water from the bottles provided.
  • We cannot have a large gathering for an award ceremony.  Instead, check the Negative Split website on your phone at www.nsplit.com/results to see if you placed in your team category  and you can collect your award after the race near the finish line. Please give us a little time after the race to have your award ready for you, so you have plenty of time to stow your gear after the race before picking up your award.  Awards are race glasses that will NOT be mailed.  If you miss the pick up after the race you will need to contact Eric at sageg@charter.net to arrange a pickup time.

Mini-Tutorial on Registration: To help you through the process, here is a quick tutorial:

  • Start at the top of Event Registration with the orange-highlighted box entitled “Choose an Option.”  Go to the drop-down list and choose which option (race only, clothing option, one-day license) you want.  The specific cost that will be charged to your credit card is also listed.
  • The next box down is the clothing option box.  If you chose the race clothing in the “Choose an Option” box, indicate your size in this box.  If you did not order the optional clothing, then select “none” in this box.
  • Fill out all required fields as usual and remember to include your USAT number when prompted if you did not choose to purchase a USAT one-day license.  If you are not a USAT member, you will need to purchase the one-day license for multi-sport events.
  • Continue with your registration until credit card payment is complete.

If you have any questions on this, feel free to contact any of the Website administrators listed on the Info – Officers page on our website.

Volunteers: We need lots of volunteers for all our multi-sport events. If you can help at this event, please contact Eric Greager at sageg@charter.net .

Drive Directions: Access to Chiawana Park is from Road 88 only.

As you register, PLEASE pay careful attention when indicating your selection in the “Choose an Option” drop-down list. This is where you choose whether you want the optional clothing option or not. It is also where you select whether you need to purchase the USAT One Day Licenses. If you are USAT members you do not need to choose the One Day Licenses – be sure to provide your USAT member numbers where prompted below. If you are not USAT members, you MUST choose to purchase the One Day Licenses to do this race.
