COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

*Subject to Change*

Swim Course

100-METERS FOR JUNIORS  - 200-METERS FOR SENIORS
Both Junior and Senior Bike Courses use the lazy river. Current is turned off. Depth is 36"-42" throughout. Juniors swim clockwise around the lazy river to the exit point 100-meters from the start. Seniors swim counterclockwise around the lazy river to the exit which is 200-meters away. Both Juniors and Seniors start and finish in the same location but go different directions around the river.

Swim Start

The swim start will stage all athletes, parents, and spectators in the Wave Pool Area. From there we will call, athletes/kids, only, over to the swim start based on ages, starting with the oldest ages first. Competitive kids should make their way to the front of the line. This is a time trial start. This means your child's time starts when they cross the timing mat. Technically age and position doesn't really matter. All that matters is when your child crosses the first mat. Their time does not begin until then. We arrange based on age and gender to help with congestion and fairness during the swim.

Bike Course

2-MILES FOR JUNIORS - 4-MILES FOR SENIORS
The bike course is completely closed to vehicles utilizing two-thirds of the outer mall loop. Riders will have two wide smooth lanes on the way out, and the same on the way back. Riders are separated by a large cone line down one mile and back. Juniors do one out-and-back loop, Seniors complete two. All Seniors will be directed to u-turn just before they get back to transition. Once u-turned all Senior riders must go back over the timing mat. All athletes should keep cones on their left at all times.

Transition

Transition will have clearly marked ins and out (swim in, bike in, bike out, mount, dismount, run out) distinguished by 20-foot red flags. All bikes should be racked in transition by the seat (or kickstand) facing out the direction their number is facing. Every athlete has a specifically assigned spot in transition that matches their race number. All athletes must have their numbers on their bikes to enter it into transition. Other required numbers include the bike helmet number, run bib number, and temporary tattoos on the child's arms. One parent is allowed to accompany their child pre race into transition. When transition closes promptly at 6:30am all parents and athletes must clear transition. After that, the only people allowed in transition are athletes, volunteers, staff, and officials. Bikes cannot be claimed until the last rider has finished and exited transition for the run. We will announce when transition is open to retrieve bikes. This is typically around 9:15am-9:30am. All bikes must be claimed by no later than 10:30am. Any bikes left unclaimed will be unguarded after 10:30am.

RUN COURSE

1-MILE FOR JUNIORS - 2-MILES FOR SENIORS
Athletes enter the run course from the back of transition and loop around the transition area heading back towards the Waterpark. Athletes will head eastbound on Katy Mills Drive and enter the Typhoon Texas Waterpark parking lot from Katy Mills Drive. Juniors (short course) runners will continue straight in front of the Waterpark and will do a simple out and back on the main access road before heading into the park. Seniors (long course) will turn left immediately when entering the parking lot and will follow the course with several out and backs in the parking lot.  Both courses will enter the Waterpark through the front entrance where all runners will run the perimeter and enter the splash pad area from side of the park running across bridges and over the lazy river where athletes will still be swimming. From there athletes will run across the splash pad and to the main road where they will finish in front of their friends and family. 

FINISH LINE

The finish line is marked with a large inflatable and bannered fencing leading in for about 1/10th of a mile. Once across the line athletes will turn in their ankle strap and receive their medal. Water and Gatorade will also be available in the finish chute. All athletes will then be directed across the path into the pavilion area where they will receive food and drinks. Parents can claim their kids through one of the guarded entrance and exit areas and must have a wristband with a matching race number. 

POST RACE

The post race area will have food, drink, music, seating, and awards. Each registered participant will receive a included meal at no additional charge. All spectators (friends and family) may purchase food and drink from the park concessions which will be open throughout the event.
