2017 Event Policies
The parent/guardian is responsible for getting the athlete to the event with sufficient time to be ready for his/her swim start. Each athlete will be assigned a specific start time, based on his/her pre-assigned race number. Missing the start time will mean missing the event. The organizers will try to accommodate any unusual circumstances but there is no guarantee that such can be done.
Swim aids such as kick boards or non-inflatable flotation devices will be allowed. Kick boards will be available at the pool. Inflatable flotation devices are not allowed in the Oregon community pool, and will not be allowed for use in this event. No performance enhancing devices such as fins will be allowed.
Bike helmets must be worn and buckled during the bike portion of the event. Helmets must comply with either CPSC, SNELL or ANSI standards .
Parents are encouraged to check your athletes bike out before race day. There will be a bike shop on site to help out with minor last minute problems, but it is a good idea to have the bike inspected before race day. Steering, brakes, tire pressure, chain, and pedals are all things that should be looked at by a bike mechanic before race day.
Training wheels will be allowed.
Parents should make sure that their athlete has proper foot attire for the race. All athletes will be required to wear shoes during the biking and running portion of the race. If your child does not know how to tie their shoes, they should be encouraged to use speed laces.
Parents are not allowed to pace their children during the race. The athletes have to run the course with the help of the volunteers to guide them through the race.
Health of Athletes
Parents should assure that their child is in good physical condition to compete in this race.
Athletes not finishing the event will receive a participant’s medal. Non-finishers will have no posted times.
Athletes that finish the race but do not complete the total distance of the course (e.g., less than the required laps, short-cutting the course) will be disqualified. Unsportsmanlike conduct is also grounds for disqualification. Volunteers will be monitoring the course and transition area for infractions. Disqualified athletes will receive a participation medal but will be ineligible for podium awards (i.e., 1st, 2nd, 3rd place in age group) and will not have their times posted.
The upper age limit is 17 years old at the time of the event. The lower age limit is 5, but parents/guardians should assess the child’s abilities to complete the prescribed course. The Oregon Kids Triathlon is conducted to be a positive experience and no child should be entered that is not going to benefit from the experience. Being asked to perform beyond one’s abilities may not be a positive experience.
There are no relay teams. Only one athlete is permitted per race number.
There will be no refunds for any reason.
No parents or guardians are permitted in the transition area. Volunteers will be present to assist the athletes and to restrict access. The transition team will help assist with all ages if needed. We ask that all athletes set up there transition area on Friday night to help with congestion on Saturday.
Oregon EMS will be stationed by the pool for anyone needing medical attention. There are also volunteers that are on the course that have basic first aid packs with them. Two volunteers will be on the course with two-way radios and all terrain carts to help athletes back to the first aid station if needed.
Rain or Shine
The race will continue rain or shine. In an event of a storm the race will be delayed until it is safe for the athletes to compete. If there are strong storms the entire day of the race that threaten the athletes safety, the race will be canceled and there will not be any refunds.
