I want updates on the Gator Grinder Triathlon!  Please add me to your Email List!

 



The North Lake Physical Therapy Gator Grinder Triathlon is an excellent introduction for the first-time triathlete, as well as a great early season event for the experienced racer.  The swim will be in a pool, the bike course is over beautiful rural roads and the run is flat and fast.  There will be road bike, mountain bike and relay divisions.  All proceeds support the Canby Swim Club.


 

Swim  

500-yard (20 lengths, 10 laps) pool swim in a 6-lane, 25-yard pool, with up to 4 swimmers per lane.  There will be volunteer lap counters.  Drafting is permitted.  The swim will be seeded by the 500-yard swim time participants submit with the entry form.  Heat assignments will be e-mailed by the Monday prior to the race.  The first heat will be in the water at 7:30 a.m.  Check in at least one hour before your start.

Bike The one-loop 12-mile bike course is over the beautiful rolling country roads that surround Canby. A Snell/Ansi-approved helmet is mandatory.  Drafting is not legal.  Volunteers will manage traffic at intersections, but roads will be open to traffic and cyclists will be responsible for their own safety.

Run

The 3.1-mile run is mostly on roadways with about one-third on a paved walking trail.  The course is flat and fast.  Water will be available on the course.
