The Fleet Feet Sprint Series continues as RDE returns to Springbrook Pool for the Springbrook Sprint Tri. The fastest and most popular race on the RDE calendar, with a 200 yard swim, flat 9 mile bike, and a 3 mile run through Springbrook Park. Overall/age group awards, technical shirts to the first 300 registrants, and post-race “cookout” back for its second year. Alcoa School Foundation is the volunteer group and donation recipient. Expected participation--350
Pool swim, with time trial start--swimmers start one at a time every 5 seconds, with the fastest swimmers starting first. Participants will swim up one lane, down another, up the next and continuing on as they traverse the pool for 200 yards
A flat fast course awaits following the short swim. The course is staffed by great volunteers and traffic control is handled by our friends from the Alcoa Police Department.
The run here is relatively flat and mostly shaded along the Springbrook Greenway

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.
