The only exception where a person may pick up another athlete's packet is a legal guardian picking up a packet for a minor.
Back for a second year in the Lenoir City venue that drew rave reviews, this Memorial Day race is a great way to cap off the holiday weekend. A 150 meter pool swim, a 12 mile flat (by East TN standards) bike ride course, and a flat 5k greenway run make this race a favorite for both beginners and accomplished triathletes. Lenoir City Pool is the spectator and family friendly venue, with volunteer support supplied by Blount County Boy Scouts. Cotton logo race shirts, overall, age group, and relay awards. Expected participation--250

This event is timed with a Championship chip. You will be required to show your bib number to the volunteers to insure you get the correct chip. This chip is programmed to coincide with your individual race number. During the event, you will cross mats that will record your time from your chip. This is how we score your race.
It is imperative that you wear YOUR assigned chip until you cross the finish line (this includes during the swim). Make sure you have the band securely around your ankle so it will not fall off during the swim. After the race please turn in your chip to the chip attendants at the finish line. Proper management of your uniquely coded timing chip will help ensure swift and accurate race results.
