Spectator tips:

  • There will be viewing near each transition area and the finish line for spectators.
  • Only participants will be allowed in the transition areas with their bibs on.
  •  Please remember sunscreen, binoculars, hat, sunglasses, camera and bottled water.
  • Spectators are discouraged from following along the run/bike routes for the safety of the athletes. Be very careful when driving to avoid getting in the way of the athletes. Their safety is our concern.
  • Allow plenty of time for parking, walking and viewing.
  • Know the participant’s start time and the route. Look at the map and know where you will meet after the event.
  • Tell your athlete that you will be at these transition and viewing sites to view them at so they can be watching for you there.
  • Know the course yourself so it is an enjoyable day and you know what to expect.
