Important Information for the Triathlon
How will my start time be determined?
Start times will be determined by the swim time that is submitted during the registration process; therefore, it is important that an accurate swim time is turned in at registration.
How do I get to Alligator’s Creek Aquatic Center?
From I-70, take the Highway K/M (Main Street) Exit 217. On Main Street, go north .5 miles. After crossing the railroad tracks, make an immediate left onto Civic Park Drive. Civic Park (and Alligator’s Creek) is 2 blocks down on the right.

How does my team member know when to start their leg of the race?
The team member should wait at the exit of the transition area ready to go. A simple high five between team mates will do just fine. The runner will wear the race number.
