A few reminders and some info leading up to the race…
The week before the race, you will receive detailed information about race day. For now, we would like to remind you of a few things and let you know about some events that are coming up.
500 YARD SWIM TIME
The deadline for making adjustments to your swim time is this Friday, March 14th. If you have not already done so, please email your name and new swim time to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your time is unchanged, no need for an email.
RACE DAY PHOTOS
We like pictures, lots of pictures! On race day, we will have students snapping shots all day long. Your race pictures will be posted on our Facebook page after the race. What that means for you is FREE race pictures! Download, share, and print as many as you want! "Like" us on FB, and you will get fun motivation in your news feed, and will be the first to know when the pictures are posted. You can even check out the pictures from our other races like the 2013 Beaver Freezer and Beaver Fever.
Sorry for all the confusion with the shirts. The last email I sent was poorly worded. I blame school for that, and again I apologize. In the mean time, shirts have been ordered, so no further changes can be made at this point. Thank you for your understanding.
PACKET PICK UP
Long paragraph, but important info here… You will be able to pick up your packet on either Friday April 4th or Saturday April 5th. On Friday, packet pick up will be held at Peak Sports in Corvallis from 12-7pm. There will be clinics and talks all day long including nutrition and triathlon 101 clinics. There will be raffle prizes and freebies throughout the day. Come to Corvallis a day early, check out the course, get your packet and win some cool stuff! Please note, because the university requires every participant to sign a hard copy of the race waiver, you must show ID and sign the waiver when picking up your packet. This means, under no circumstances can you pick up someone else's packet. We are sorry, but no, you can not get your friend's for them. If you are on a team, each team member will need to sign the waiver before receiving their timing chip. Minors, your parent or guardian must sign for you. If they can not join you to pick up your packet, let me know and I will send you a copy of the waiver to have them fill out. You will still need to show ID at packet pick up.
RUN TO GET LUCKY
The St. Patty's day run is this Saturday afternoon at 1:00pm. Come out and race the OSU Triathlon Club! We are doing a trainer workout at the starting line followed by a quick transition and then 5K run. Come say hi while we are spinning, meet the race director and students who are working hard to put on this race for you. Online registration closes Thursday at 11:59pm. The 5k is almost sold out, shirts are becoming limited… Come out and race some aero-beaver-leprechauns!
PEAK SPORTS TRI CLINIC MARCH 15TH
Peak Sports in Corvallis will be hosting an informative seminar for new triathletes on Saturday, March 15th, at 6:00 pm. This event is open to all, but will be geared toward first time triathletes and those that are fairly new to the sport. General race procedures and FAQ's will be discussed as well as a specific focus on the Beaver Freezer. An RSVP is not required, but is suggested so that Peak has a rough idea of numbers to expect. Please email email@example.com to RSVP, or to ask any further questions regarding the event.
