Support your friends

We appreciate your support, and so does your athlete. Here are a few things to know about spectating at the Millennium Triathlon:

  • Expect to get up early as the race starts at 7:30am.
  • Be sure to get directions and pack snacks the night before. Check your vehicle for gas
  • Wear comfortable clothing, tennis shoes, a light jacket, hat or sun glasses.
  • Bring cash in case you need to buy food or water

Every event has their own rules for spectators, but here are the common ones:

  • Parts of the course will be public roads that are not closed off to vehicles and pedestrian traffic. Pay extra attention not to inadvertently interfere with the race.
  • Always obey and listen to race officials, volunteers and emergency staff
  • Stay off the course and behind all fencing and cones
  • Only cross the race course at designated areas and wait for race staff’s ok
  • Always yield to athletes, especially cyclist as they can be moving very fast and will not stop
  • Fans are not allowed in the Transition Areas. No exceptions.
  • Do not litter
  • Be courteous to other spectators and course neighbors
  • Pets are not allowed

To make your spectator experience the best here are some tips.

  • Get a course map and talk to the athlete about good vantage points. Check the course maps here
  • Find out the athlete’s estimated times for each leg of the race so you know when to expect her/him
  • Blow a funny whistle or ring a bell so that the person you’re cheering for can pick you out of the crowd
  • Bring a camera
  • Take note of your athlete’s clothes, bike and number. All those athletes look the same swimming, biking and running
  • Be prepared to drive home, as your athlete may be very tired after the race
  • ENJOY the DAY
