Description:
Come and experience the Portland area’s only pool swim sprint distance triathlon for 2013. We have 20 lanes open for the 875 yard swim, 5 yards shy of a half a mile. Our bike course, 13.3 miles, will offer a little bit for everyone, from the 100 meter climb out of the transition area to the 2.5 mile decent on the way home, and a great flat section in between, this is a little bit of what to expect from Series 33 Triathlon, nothing is going to be easy. The run course, 3.1 miles, is in and around the campus on sidewalks and closed to traffic streets.
Course Info:

Swim

The swim portion of the Mt Hood Sprint Triathlon will take place at the Mt. Hood Aquatics Center. Your start time will be determined by your projected half mile swim time. Your will receive a swim cap in your race packet, this cap must be worn while doing the swim. The fastest 4 times will start in lane 1, and then the next fastest 4 in the lane 2. You will be swimming 17.5 laps, entering on one side of the pool and exiting on the other side of the pool. Each lane will have a a lap counter who will hold a colored, this color will match your swim cap color, paddle under the water as you approach the wall for your final turn. When you see this paddle it’s your indication that you have completed 17 laps and will be exiting the water on the other side of the pool this time. Once you have completed the swim portion you’ll exit the water and turn left on the pool deck following a coned and flagged corridor out to the transition area 45 yards away. Stay in the corridor, there will be plenty of room to get everyone out quickly. During the swim, slower swimmers should hold at the wall to let faster swimmers pass. If you feel someone tap your feet several times this is the indicator that there is a faster swimmer needing to get by.

Bike

The Mt Hood Sprint Triathlon Bike Course is challenging and 13.3 miles long. There are a couple of shorter challenging climbs and a 2 mile 3-5 degree section that will zap your legs quickly if you don’t monitor your output. For experienced riders, a 11-25 rear gear selection should be adequate. For those of you with a little less time in the saddle it might be wise to prepare with a 12-27 or 28. Your riding up on the way out, a nice flat section for approximately 3.5 miles and then down on the way home. Most of the course has good pavement and some shoulder, there are a couple of sections with no shoulder. Please be a good competitor and stay right except to pass. When overtaking another athlete please let them know your there, “on your left”, is good cycling educate, whether racing or training. Remember to save a little bit for the monster steep short climb back into the transition area. You’ll be entering the transition area with swimmers from heats after yours, you will not be crossing, but merging. Be prepared to dismount after reentering the parking lot and prior to entering the transition area. Remember all UAST rules apply on the bike course!

Run

The Mt Hood Sprint Run Course is 3.1 miles (5K) in distance. After leaving the transition area you will turn right as you reach the main campus side walk. You will follow this to the exit of the main parking lot where you’ll take another right and remaining on the side walk for for the rest of the run until you enter a campus road near mile 1.1. There is one signal that has a light that we will be running through, there will be a traffic control person here, please follow their direction. You will take another right at Stark Street and run down a short hill, turning onto a campus road that will be closed to traffic, you are required to not cross the centerline of the road. You will do a short loop section on campus before returning on the same course. Runners should stay right and pass on the left if possible. There are bike lanes on most of the course and can be used to pass using extreme caution. You’ll turn back into the main parking lot of the campus and head towards the Aquatic Center. You will run pass the Aquatic Center to a pedestrian side walk that runs along side the Aquatics Center building on the North (right) side. This is the beginning of the finish chute, you’ll follow this back to the pool area and finish next to the pool.
