Ballwin Triathlon

USAT Sanctioned logo.png
Sunday, July 21, 2024

In partnership with the City of Ballwin, MSE Racing is excited to host the Ballwin Triathlon. The USAT sanctioned Ballwin Triathlon is a 300-yard pool swim, 9-mile bike, and 3.4-mile run. This race is very popular and fills up to capacity almost every year. Wave start times are available on a first come, first serve basis so be sure to secure your spot early if a certain start time is important to you.

 

IT'S BACK this year: the Double Triathlon. If you are looking for a greater challenge, here’s your opportunity! Participants will complete the Ballwin Triathlon course and then head back to the pool to complete the course a second time beginning with one lap around North Pointe’s lazy river.

Pre-Event PACKET PICKUP

LOCATION:

To Be Determined

 

You CANNOT pick up someone else’s packet. Make sure you bring your Photo ID.

 

TIME: To Be Determined


RACE PACKET:
There will be 5 specific items to be aware of -

1. Wristband: There will be a wristband with your race number. These must be worn to access transition on Saturday and Sunday. If you misplace this band, you will need to secure a new one prior to entering transition.

2. Timing Chip: You will receive your timing chip when you pick up your packet at the expo on Saturday. DO NOT FORGET THIS ON RACE MORNING. You will wear the timing chip on your left ankle with the chip portion facing out. This is how you will be timed. NO CHIP = NO TIME = NO RESULTS.

3. Bike Sticker: place this on your bike, usually the seat post is the best place or the top  tube.

4. Helmet Sticker: place this on the front of your helmet.

5. Race Bib: You are only required to wear your bib while you are on the run. It should always be forward-facing and visible. You can affix it to you using safety pins or a bib belt
