Frequently Asked Questions
1. What ages can participate? Tri to Cure is a youth triathlon that is open to any child ages 6-15. If your child's birthday is within one month of the race, he/she is able to participate in the race.
2. What does my child need to participate? Each child is required to have a bike in good working order, a helmet with chin straps that buckle, and shoes for the run. Goggles or a mask for the swim is helpful, but not required.
3. Where can I register? You can request a flyer by mail at 201 Smythe Street, #103 Greenville, SC 29611. Registration is online only at www.setupevents.com. The race is listed under “Other Events” and found by date order under Tri to Cure.
4. Where do I pick up my race packet? Packet pick up at Furman University from 4-7 p.m. and Saturday morning from 6-7 a.m. You will also receive your race number at that time.
5. What is "Transition"? Transition is the movement from one event to the next. The transition area is where each child will be given a spot to put his/her bike, shoes, and any other belongings the child wants to use during the race. The participant will go from the swim around the back of the PAC building to the transition area, get ready for the bike, and walk the bike out of the transition area. They will return after the bike to the transition area and leave for the run. After the run, they will go to the finish line.
6. What should I pack for the race? Everyone is different but we have found it helpful to include the following items in a bag or box for the race day. Goggles, for the swim. A towel to lay at your transition spot to wipe your feet and to help you identify your space. Shoes, helmet, and a shirt (if you would like) for the bike portion. A water bottle with water or a sports drink for energy. Good running shoes for the run. A huge smile for a great day.
7. Can I get a refund? Since 100% of our proceeds go to charity, we prefer to give your registration directly to charity. Our policy has always been no refunds. We hope that you consider your registration fee to be a donation to the chosen charity for that year.
