ROCK the MOCK Triathlon & Duathlon
Date: Saturday, April 12
Location: Boerne Lake
Time: 8 AM
Triathlon – Super Sprint (400m swim/10 mile bike/2 mile run), Sprint (800m swim/15 mile bike/5K run), Olympic (1600m swim/25 mile bike/10K run).
Duathlon – Run/bike/run: 2 mile run/10 mile bike/2 mile run or 5K run/15 mile bike/5K run.
Parking & Entry:
Entry: Boerne lake entry fee is $12. Note: sometimes the cash register system is slow and it has caused delays of people getting into the lake (we have personally experienced this delay). Please allot 10-15 minutes for entry to the lake to ensure plenty of time for set up.
Parking: Park closest to the boat ramp.
-Sign In & Registration: Opens at 7:15 AM. Please sign in and confirm your race distance. We will have a white tent with a table by the transition area (nearest the boat ramp).
-Body Marking: To keep track of participants, we will assign a number to you and mark it on your arm with permanent marker.
Transition will be in the grass lot to the left of the boat ramp. We will have volunteers monitoring your things, so please set up your transition prior to the event start. There is plenty of space, so pick your favorite spot on the transition rack.
*We have many volunteers and we will watch your things carefully, but we are not responsible for lost or stolen items. This is our third year putting on the event, and have never experienced theft or damage to participant items.
Start Time & Location:
Start Time: 8:00 AM. Event briefing at 7:45 AM. (Please be ready to go by 7:45 AM)
Start Location: Super Sprint will start on other side of lake. Shuttle service in the Alamo 180 truck to the Super Sprint start line. Sprint & Olympic and Duathlon will start at the boat ramp. All distances will start at the same time.
Swim Course Info:
The swim will be kayak supported.
Water temperature: The water temp will be about 62 degrees. We highly recommend a wetsuit. If you do not have one, you can choose to make it a duathlon – run/bike/run event.
Safety: If you would like to tie a water noodle to your ankle with string, we encourage you to do so.
Bike Course Info:
The bike course will be marked with signs.
We will have a sag vehicle.
Run Course Info:
The run course will be marked with signs.
Water and electrolyte jugs will be on the course.
We will record everyone’s overall time, and do our best with taking splits, but please bring a stop watch and record your own time and splits for backup. Timing will be done for both duathlon and triathlon.
We will provide water and electrolyte drink, and post-event snack, but come prepared with your own nutrition in case you don’t like what we have. ROCK the MOCK Triathlon is the perfect opportunity to test out your race day nutrition plan. Always try something new in practice, never in an actual race.
Thanks again for choosing Alamo 180! If you have any questions, please let us know! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you Saturday bright and early!
Coaches Bree, Jeff & Crystal
