Kids Only...Great Race for beginners! Our goal is to have a low pressure event, but one that will be full of energy. All pre-registered participants are guaranteed to receive a race shirt, in addition to a goody bag. Pool Swim with a bike and run course on park grounds...NO TRAFFIC.
All finishers will receive a Finisher Award, as well as awards given to the top 3 in the following age groups: 5 & under, 6 & 7, 8 & 9, 10 & 11, 12 & 13. Training wheels and swim aids are OK for younger riders and swimmers.
Summer Super Sprint Series
The Bootlegger race is event #5 (of 5) in the summer series. Participants receive series points based on their finish time. Series awards will be given out at the end of the race event. In order to be eligible for series awards, athletes must participate in at least 3 of the events. See www.fivestarntp.com for more information on the race series, and additional events.

14 years & older
14 years & older will race with our adults on the adult course. Please see the active.com registration page for the Chopped Oak Super Sprint for their registration.
The swim will be in a 25 yard pool, and athletes will go in one at a time approximately every 30 sec.
Bike & Run Legs
The bike & run legs will be in the park area, and will be closed, or have very MINIMAL traffic.
Participants will race based on their age on the day of the race.
Estimated Swim Time
Athletes will be placed for the swim start based on their estimated swim time. This will allow the faster swimmers to go first, and keep them from catching the slower swimmers. Please do your best to have an accurate time.
If you don't like, can't do, or shouldn't do one of the legs of a triathlon; don't worry...Just grab a friend or two and sign up for the Relay. Each relay team member receives the same benefits as if they were a single registration. Relay teams must be in the same age group (ie. 8 & 9 or 5 & under, etc)
