Thank you for being a part of the Mighty Matapeake Multisport Festival in beautiful Stevensville, Maryland this coming Saturday. We wanted to reach out with a breakdown of the events this week, starting today with what you should expect that may be different from races you have done in the past.
So what should you expect for the Matapeake race? The biggest change that you will see will be an assortment of mitigation strategies designed to keep everyone safe on race day.
As you enter Sonny Schulz Blvd, you will see parking flags and arrows, pointing you to a parking lot to the left. This is our main parking area. We ask that you respect the businesses that are in the area and not park in any of the business lots that may be open on Saturday. Please try to NOT park on Sonny Schulz Blvd, as this is our Bike In/Bike Out route! We DO have some overflow parking in the lot for The Rag Lady, directly across from our main parking area.
There is no packet pickup the day before the race. Your bib numbers will be assigned around Wednesday of this week and will be available on the registration site by looking in FIND A PARTICIPANT at the top of the page. When you approach transition, have your bike and your Photo ID with you. THERE ARE SIX BIKES PER RACK, and you will find your bag waiting for you at your position. We created a video of everything that you will find in your packet at https://youtu.be/jNmDQvovurE and we placed that at the bottom of the page at www.MightyMatapeakeTriathlon.com
In your packet you will find a sticker set (big sticker for your bike, little sticker for your helmet, l). You will also find your bib (only need to wear on the run, on the front of your clothes so the photographer can know who you are), your SWAG (who knew that meant Stuff We All Get?!?), and most importantly your TIMING STRAP. Put that strap on your ankle as soon as you get in!!! (I prefer my left ankle).
We ask that you arrive as early as you can as we would like to have everyone OUT OF TRANSITION BY 0750 am!! We will allow athletes in transition at 645 am. Transition will be CLOSED by 8am, for an on time start.
Spectators and the General Public ARE allowed. We ask that they park in the same area that you do, and that you consider car pooling with your spectators.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org any time!!
For anyone who did not get last week's email with the Athlete Guide, we are attaching it to this email, and we have put it at the top of the page. We are also going to include each of this week's emails at the top of the page at www.MightyMatapeakeTri.com, to keep everyone up to date!
