Typhoon Texas Kids Triathlon

Sun May 3, 2020 Katy, TX US 77494 Directions
Virtual Rules & Info

 

With the transition to a virtual event, we want to make the process as seamless as possible for everyone. All you need to do is complete the prescribed distance for the race you were registered for (check out the race distances on the course page at https://runsignup.com/Race/TyphoonTexasKidsTri/Page/course) and then submit your times for each discipline; swim, bike, and run. 

If you don’t have access to a pool or place to swim, we encourage you to get creative and substitute the swim for another exercise like a short run or push-ups prior to biking. We are going to be flexible with the submissions and our goal is simply to encourage kids to be active and introduce them to multi-sport events. 

Your personalized race bib will be shipped with your race packet and is not required to complete the virtual race but we've attached a race bib that you can download, print, and where while your completing the race virtually. See below and click image to download the PDF race bib. 

You don’t have to do all three disciplines at once but we encourage you to try to get all three done within a single day. If you would like to spread the exercises out over several days, you are more than welcome to do so. To complete your race and get your race packet with your finisher’s medal, you will need to submit your times on the form linked below. You can begin submitting results on Saturday, April 4th. The cutoff to submit your time is 11:59pm on May 3, 2020. We’ll be sending several reminders to submit prior to the deadline. If you have multiple kids registered, you will need to submit results for each one separately. To see a list of those who have already submitted results as of 05/03/2020 at 6am please click HERE

 

CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT YOUR RESULTS

 

Please share your photos/videos of your kids doing the virtual race on the event Facebook page or post to your own social media page(s) and tag @typhoontexaskidstri. We're going to miss seeing everyone at the race and finish line so hopefully this will help bring a smile to everyone's face. 

 

RESULTS

As the submission period ends, we’ll gather all submitted results and will post them on the official results page, https://runsignup.com/Race/TyphoonTexasKidsTri/Page/results. You can expect to see these posted sometime on Monday, May 4th. 

 

RACE PACKET & FINISHER MEDAL DELIVERIES

All race packets will include the following items:

  • Event shirt (size that was selected when registering)
  • Personalized race bib
  • Finisher's medal

If you purchased any store items, they will be included with your race packet. 

Those that have completed the Typhoon Texas Kids Triathlon every year since the inaugural race in 2016 will also receive their 5-year finisher medal display to show off the race medals from all 5 years of the race. 

We’ll begin shipping out race packets and finisher’s medals after the submission period has ended. Our goal is to have everything shipped no later than May 15th. Everything will be shipped USPS First Class so you should have it in hand with 2-3 days of it shipping. When the shipping label is created for your packet, you’ll receive an automated email with a tracking number. 

 

ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS

I will be take extra care when packaging the items. Most studies suggest that this novel coronavirus can’t live on surfaces for more than 48 hours, this means if anything becomes contaminated the virus should have died prior to you receiving the package. Even so, I am taking additional precautions. 

  1. I will be the only person handling the race items, packages, and labels prior to being dropped off at USPS.
  2. I will self-quarantine for 14 days prior to the shipping process. I have not been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 nor have I attended any gatherings since early March.
  3. All race items and packaging material will be left in quarantine for at least 3 days at our storage locker once delivered from our vendor. I will be the only person handling the boxes once they are dropped off. Our storage locker is a self-storage locker with outdoor access so I won’t be around anyone when the items are picked up.
  4. While packaging items, I will wear nitrile gloves and disinfect any work surfaces regularly. 

I hope these extra precautions provide peace-of-mind that we are making every effort to ensure the safety of you and your family.
