Info about the order/wave start list and how it will work on race day….

• Swim start waves have been assigned based on the swim time you submitted when you registered.

• Participants are assigned a wave start, rather than an exact start time. It is a ‘rolling’ wave start. Swimmers will start approximately every 5-7 seconds in a time trial start format.

  • These are first-come, first-serve, within the wave. There is no ‘order’ to folks within the wave that you are in. Everyone that is in your wave submitted a similar swim start time.

• Swim warm-ups are from 6:30-6:50am.

NOTE: If you sign up for the Hendersonville Triathlon after 11am on Thursday, June 15th you will get your wave start time when you pick up your bib at packet pickup. 

When you go to the pool to start you will:
#1 Put your shoes for the swim to bike transition, under the picnic shelter. (If you want to, not required!) This is the side exit area for the swim finish that is to the far left side of the pool when facing the building from the parking lot. (see hub map)

Then next…
#2 Walk around to the front entrance to enter the MAIN ENTRANCE of the pool.

Then next…
#3 Get in the swim line.
#4 Participants will start approximately every 5-7 seconds, and will jump (or dive) into the pool at the deep end. (For swim flow and maps see Event Guide.)
#5 Participants will move up in line, as participants start their swim.

Can’t wait to see you Saturday morning!
