The 250 yard pool swim will take place in the Rex Wellness Center of Garner's lap pool. Participants will then make their way to the transition area in the larger parking lot in the front right corner of the facility. The bike course is the fastest course of all the REX races. It features a 5 mile out and back course on Timber drive. This course is great for the beginner triathlete. To finish the race, athletes will enjoy a 2 mile run down and back Timber drive. There will be a water station as you exit the transition area and at the turnaround on the run. The race will finish up across from the transition area in parking lot of the adjacent building. Post race snacks and water will be available at the finish line.The race course revolves around a transition area next to the Rex Healthcare of Garner facility. The same transition area will be used for all phases. The transition area will open at 5:00 am; ALL bikes need to be placed in position before the transition area closes at 6:45am.
All participants must submit the total time it takes you to swim 250 yards for seeding purposes. Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest by total finish time. By seeding yourself properly, you'll end up swimming near people who swim the same pace as you. This will reduce the number of people who you will need to pass or the number of people who will be passing you.
