For those parents/guardians and young athletes that are unfamiliar with the De Anza College campus, want to learn about changes from prior years, or have questions about the event, we will be holding an orientation meeting at the college on Saturday, August 12th.
Where: De Anza College Pool entrance (Physical Education Building) near Parking Lot C.
Time: 4:00 pm
We will answer questions and discuss everything that happens on Race Day. Captains from Packet Pickup, Transition, Swim, Bike, and Run will be there to explain how their area works and to answer questions.
Afterward, there is an optional tour of the course. The bike course will not be toured due to its length but the exit to and entrance from the bike route will be identified. Parents/guardians may drive the bike course following the orientation.
The meeting is not required but there are changes every year. Therefore, it is highly encouraged. If you can’t make it, a handout will be available on the website.
We anticipate that the orientation will take about 1-to-1.5 hours.
Live Streaming & Recording
Another improvement is that we will attempt to Live Stream the meeting to our Facebook page. Even if the Live Stream doesn’t work, we’ll have a recording which will be posted to our website.
There is also a handout.
Get a Bike & Helmet Check before or after the meeting
We are trying something new this year. If you don’t manage to get your Bike & Helmet Check done before the meeting, there will be a mobile bike mechanic from BikeLogik on site starting at 3:30 pm for your convenience.
De Anza College has a $3 per car parking fee 24 hours / 7 days a week. Permits are purchased at meters located in the lots. Meters take dollar bills, coins or credit cards. No change is available so please come prepared.
PARKING IS CURRENTLY FREE – WHEE!
