Swim - The R.A.T. Race will begin at the Cascade Swim Center. The swim requires completion of 20 lengths of the 25 meter lap pool. Your estimated 500 meter swim time is needed to determine your race heat and assign your start time.
Bike - The 12 mile bike course begins and ends at the Cascade Swim Center parking lot. The course will have a nice variation in scenery and elevation changes. The circuit leads bikers along the outskirts of our city on newly paved county roads and back through the residential areas of Redmond to the pool. Ride on the right side of the road and pass to the left. Drafting, defined as being within 3 bike lengths of the rider in front of you, is not allowed. Flaggers and volunteers will be at intersections along the race course, but ALL RACERS must obey traffic laws. This course is not closed!
Run - Competitors will head down into our famed Dry Canyon to begin their 5k run along a peaceful paved pathway though the heart of Redmond. This will be a down and back leg with completion taking place around the Redmond High School track just west of the pool.
Registration – closes August 7, 2010 at 5:00 PM PST. There is no race day registration. Both mail-in and on-line registration is available by clicking on the buttons above. There will also be registration forms available at the Cascade Swim Center. Race participation will be limited to 150 individuals/teams. You must be 10 years and older to participate on a team. You must be 14 years and older to participate as an individual. All persons 18 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult and have a parent/guardian co-sign their registration form.
Race Day – There will be a mandatory competitors meeting outside the Cascade Swim Center at 7:00AM. The first swim heat will start at 7:30AM. Packet pick-up will be from 6:00AM - 8:00AM. Competitors will be provided with race numbers for the bike and the run, as well as access tags for competitor parking and the transition area. You will also receive a timing chip. The race provides a secure transition area in which only event staff and competitors will be allowed entrance. Please plan to bring your bike and race gear to the transition area on race day with plenty of time to make your swim heat. Security will be provided in the transition area from 6:00AM to 12:00PM on race day. All bikes must be picked up by noon.
Chip Timing - This is a chip timed event. Participants must wear their assigned chip during the event. It is important that each team member wear THEIR chip so the time is associated with the correct race segment. Participants are responsible for returning their timing chip at the finish or be charged a $30 chip replacement fee.
Massage - Rejuvenate yourself after your race with a complimentary 10 minute chair massage with Licensed Massage Therapist, Jessica Helie. Jessica will be on hand to work out your sore and tired muscles. She is generously donating her time and service to the event. Tips are welcome! All massages offered are on a first come first served basis.
Awards Party - Awards will be presented to the top male and female individual finishers. We will also award the top finishers in each of the individual male and female age categories. These categories include 14-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 and over. There are no age categories for relay teams. Two and three person teams will compete with each other. Awards will be presented to the top male, female, co-ed and family teams. Random prize drawings will occur in which all competitors and volunteers will be entered. New! A delicious post-race food service is included in your entry fee.
