Organiser's Description

Saturday, May 27th, 2022 starting at 8 amLocation: Danenberger Family VineyardsEvents: 5K RunBiathlon –5K run and a 15-mile bikeTeam Biathlon – Split the Biathlon and one person runs the 5K and the other bikes the 15 miles
Packet pickup is from 6:30 am to 7:30 am on race morning. Look for the check in tent on the southside of the Winery near Irish Road.
Parking will be on the east side of the winery. You can use the restrooms inside the winery as well as the outside porta-potties.
Safety is always a concern so remember to follow the rules of the road. Run on the left side and bike on the right side. We will have Ham Radio operators patrolling the roads and helping with local traffic if any. We don't expect to see many cars along the route because there are only a few homes out there.
Start time for the 5K is 8 am for all participants. The route is a flat, out and back on Irish Rd.
You are chipped timed so line up according to your intended pace and your time starts when you cross the start line. When you are finished head down to the winery for some snacks after you collect your finisher's medal. There will be some breakfast food for sale as well. So your friends and family can eat too.
Biathletes after finishing your 5K lap turn towards the bike corral near the finish line. Your transition time starts when you cross the 5k finish line. Remember you must walk your bike out of the corral and have your helmet on before you can leave the corral. Your transition time ends and bike lap one starts when you cross the start/finish line going east on Irish Road. After completing your first loop you will be going across the finish line again so we can capture your split time. Your final time is the sum of all your laps: 5k lap; T1 is your transition time to get your bike and back out to the start/finish line, Bike lap 1 is your first 7.5 mile loop and Bike lap 2 is your second 7.5 mile loop.
We are not a USAT event but we will follow their rules for the transition area and bike route:1. First come first served for positions on the bike racks in the transition area. Because of the size of the event just about any position will get you in and out quickly.2. Keep your gear as close to your bike as possible. Using a small towel or folded larger towel to set your gear on so your stuff is visually separated from others.3. All bikers must wear a helmet when leaving the corral area.4. Wait until you get on the road to mount your bike.5. No drafting other bikers (maintain 3 bike lengths from a rider in front of you). If you are going to pass, do so quickly (15 seconds) and pass on the left side.6. Ride on the far right side of the road except to pass or avoid a road hazard.
We will have awards for top finishers at about 9 am for the 5K and 10 am for the Biathlon.
 
We have a single event 5K.  So if you aren't ready to add a bike race to your running, you can join in the fun of the day and run with your friends on the 5K section of the biathlon!
Good news, you no longer need to have a USAT membership to participate in this event.  If you are not a USAT member that saves you $15 on race day!
