What is the average water temperature on race day?
Should I wear a wetsuit?
Wetsuits are neither required nor discouraged. The decision is strictly a personal judgment call. Some triathletes wear wetsuits because they feel it makes them more buoyant in the water. Others choose not to wear wetsuits because they believe that taking them off adds to their transition time.
I am a novice, tell me about the course.
The Fairmont Triathlon caters to novice and intermediate athletes.
The swim course delineated by foam noodles and large buoys. The entire swim course is protected by both motorized and non-motorized watercraft. Athletes may hang on to flotation devices or boats to rest, but may not use the devices to make forward progress.
The bike course is well marked with road paint and law enforcement or volunteers staff every corner and the turn-around. The bike course takes place on paved county roads and sees little auto traffic, however the course is not closed to traffic so please exercise the same caution you would on any bike ride.
The run route is a loop, following paved trails and roads with two water stops. The course will be marked with markers and law enforcement or volunteers will control all major intersections. Again, this is not a closed course so please be aware of auto traffic.
