December 9, 2017 Registration Form                                                                             January 20, 2018 Registration Form

Competitors may arrive beginning at 9:00am to register in the Lilly Center Lobby.  Please enter from College Ave. and bring a photo ID.  Erdmann Natatorium will be available 9:15am - 9:45am (promptly) for warm-ups; participants competing in later heats may warm up in lanes 9 and 10, space permitting. All participants should be on the pool deck, ready to compete, 30 minutes before their wave time and there will be a brief meeting to cover all event rules and procedures 5 minutes before each wave. The first wave will begin promptly at 10am, and subsequent waves will start at 10:30am and 11am.

Each segment is 20 minutes; distances will be recorded on score cards and each individual will have one card. At the end of each segment, an official timekeeper will record distance on your card and move to the next segment with you; competitors are not responsible for their own time cards. After the running segment, all cards will be submitted to the officials and final places will be determined.

All segments will be started by a DePauw University official.

  • Swimmers may start either in the water or from a standing start on the side of the deck (no running starts). Swimmers should start only when prompted by the official starter.

  • Upon finishing the swimming segment, competitors will be required to change into dry clothing and athletic clothes before proceeding to the biking segment. Competitors will have 10 minutes for this transition.  Please be safe when moving through the building.

  • Competitors will be directed from the pool to the bikes (moving from lockerrooms directly to hallways and not through the pool deck) in the spin room (Lilly 1014), and the biking segment will begin promptly at 10:30am and 11am. Distance will be recorded by your official timekeepers.

  • Following biking, competitors will move directly to 2nd floor of the Welch Fitness Center and run on treadmills.  You will have 5 minutes for this transition.  Competitors will be allowed to adjust speed and incline of the treadmill to their liking.  Total distance will be recorded.
