If you are a man weighing 220 pounds plus or are a women weighing 165 pounds and over you qualify (but are not required) to race the Clydesdale/Athena division. There will only be one division for men and one for women. You must indicate this on your Holiday Lake Triathlon Registration Form.
We are happy to have secured the services of JMS Racing using state-of-the-art AMB Elite Timing System! AMB's active transponders have internal long-life batteries that switch on and off as each athlete crosses over each start, split or finish line detection point. Participants will be given a transponder attached to an adjustable strap that wraps around the ankle for use during the triathlon. DO NOT remove the transponder from the strap and NO other chip may be used in place of the provided transponder.
These transponders are not transferable! Be careful not to switch with family members, friends, etc. Transponders must be worn at all times during the triathlon in order to receive any times. For teams, one transponder will be provided for each team. The transponder should be passed on to the next team member after each leg of the triathlon. As these transponders are very expensive, it is imperative that all participants return them at the completion of the event. Volunteers at the finish line area will be prepared to take back the transponders as each participant finishes the triathlon. For participants that do not finish, please return the transponder to the finish line area before leaving the event. Transponders can be mailed back to:
JMS Racing Services
PO Box 582
Marion, IA 52302
A $50 fee will be charged to each participant who does not return their transponder.
