Divisions

Age Group

The minimum age to participate in the Sprint Distance event is 14. The minimum age for the Intermediate Distance event is 16. The minimum age for the Half Distance event is 18.

Open (Half Distance Only)

The open division exists for the fastest participants. The idea is to let the pros and elite age groupers compete against each other, regardless of age, and to therefore make the age group waves a little more friendly.

Relay (Half Distance Only)

The Relay division is available to 3 person teams in the half Distance event. Relay teams will be issued one timing chip which they will pass from teammate to teammate. Relay teams must come to the Expo together to pick up their packets and each team members must have a valid USAT license. Relays are available in the male, female, and co-ed categories.

Kids Fun Run

There will be a free kids run on Saturday directly after the Sprint distance triathlon. View all the details: Kids Fun Run.

Transition Area Format & Bike/Run Check-In

All events at the Kerrville Triathlon Festival will use a two transition area format. T1 (swim to bike) and T2 (bike to run) are in different locations approximately 2 miles apart. Participants will ride their bicycles during the event from T1 after the swim to T2, where they will begin the run. After packet pick-up there is MANDATORY bike check-in and run bag drop. This will require a trip to T1 with your bike and a trip to T2 to drop your run bag. Please see the course maps for the locations of T1 and T2. Mandatory Bike and Run Bag check-in is at the following times:

Sprint Distance
Friday 4 PM - 7:30 PM  Bike Check-In at T1 and Run Bag Check-In at T2
Saturday 5:30 AM to 6:30 AM  Packet Pickup and Run Bag Check-In at T2, followed by Bike Check-In at T1
It is strongly recommened that you check in your bike and run bag on Friday, if possible.
 
Half & Intermediate Distance
Saturday 1 PM - 5:30 PM  Bike Check-In at T1 and Run Bag Check-In at T2
Saturday Bike and Run Bag Check-In is MANDATORY. There is no check-in on race day.

Run, Swim, and Dry Clothes Bags

Athletes will receive 3 bags along with their packet:

  • Run Gear Bag: This bag should be used to hold all of the items you will need when transitioning from the bike to the run. This typically includes running shoes, socks, hat/visor, sunglasses, and nutrition. This bag must be checked into T2 on the day prior to the event.
  • Bike Gear Bag: After the swim, all of your swim gear will be transported from T1 to T2, so that all of your belongings are in T2 after the race. Anything you wear during the swim that you will not take with you on the bike must be placed into the Bike Gear Bag after the swim. This typically includes goggle, swim cap, and a wetsuit.
  • Dry Clothes Bag: After the swim, all of your gear will be transported from T1 to T2, so that all of your belongings are in T2 after the race. Therefore, any clothes that you wore to the race site that you will not be using during the race must be placed into the Dry Clothes Bag. You must drop off your bag at the designated location outside T1 before heading to the swim start.

Bike Check-Out

Bikes will not be allowed out of Transition until the majority of cyclists have completed the bike course. Participants will be allowed back into transition after they finish, but bikes may not be removed from the racks. Please be courteous to your fellow participants.

Finish Line Carnival

The finish line carnival is open to all participants and spectators. Participants will receive free hot food and drinks, as well as other treats. Food & drink for spectators may be available for purchase, and may be free at some vendors. Free water will be available for everyone.

Athlete Ammenities

Each participant will receive a technical shirt and hat along with their goodie bag at packet pickup. Upon completion of the event, each participant will be presented with a finisher medal and souvenier bike bottle at the finish line.
