Course Info: The Rookie Triathlon is a super sprint triathlon, which is perfect if this is your first triathlon. This beginner triathlon course begins with a short 300-meter loop swim in Decker Lake. The swim course is lined with trained lifeguards in kayaks to keep the event as safe as it is fun! The bike course does 1 loop around the lake in a protected dedicated lane. The run course takes place on a mix of road and smooth grass/mulch trails.
More: We wanted everyone to be able to experience the joy and awesome community that is triathlon, so in 2004 we created The Rookie Triathlon. This super sprint tri is a great beginner triathlon and is unique because of its separated Rookie (beginners) and Veterans (experience triathlete) waves. The course is beginner friendly but also great for those who are looking to speed on a short distance.rnrnEach Participants receives:rnrnCustom T-ShirtrnReusable bag stock full of goodiesrnReusable Finisher's Water Bottle filled with ice cold water when you cross the finish linernUnique 2019 Finisher Medal to commemorate how awesome you are!rnEntry to the Finish Line Festival with FREE food, drinks, music and many vendors to visitrnAthlete Tracking to share with you friends and family so that can cheer you on from near and farrnFree Finish Video of you crossing the finish linernrnWe love keeping you up to date on all things Rookie Tri, so make sure to join the newsletter and follow us on social media.
Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
