Course Cutoffs

To ensure participant safety and minimize the impact on the surrounding communities, the Annapolis Sailor’s Triathlon has established course cutoffs for the race in coordination with the Annapolis Police Department, the City of Annapolis, and the United States Naval Academy.

All runners must be to Gate 1 of the Naval Academy (approximate Run Mile 1.8) by 8:55 AM, as streets in the historic district must reopen by 9:00 AM. You will be directed to move to the sidewalk and follow pedestrian rules to finish the course. All roads, including those outside Gate 8 of the Naval Academy (approximate Run Mile 2.9) will reopen at 9:30 AM. There will be a sweep vehicle, but you will be allowed to continue on the sidewalks as a pedestrian. All triathletes must finish by 10:00 AM to receive a finishing time.

Race officials reserve the right to pull any participant from the course who is not making satisfactory progress on the course or is considered a danger to themselves or others.

What Do I Get?

Each registrant will receive the following items:

RACE SHIRT

SWIM CAP
Individual registrants will receive a colored swim cap with the Annapolis Sailor’s Triathlon logo that corresponds to their wave group.  For relays, the swim leg will receive the swim cap. Participants must wear the provided swim cap during the race.

NUMBER
In addition to body marking, each participant will receive a helmet number, bike number, and bib number. The bib number is only required for the run portion and must be worn on the front of the body and visible at all times. THIS IS A REQUIREMENT to enter the US Naval Academy. No exceptions.

FINISHER’S MEDAL
All participants in the individual and relay races will receive an Annapolis Sailor’s Triathlon finisher’s medal upon completion of the race.

POST-RACE FOOD & DRINK & PARTY
Participants are encouraged to stick around after the race for complimentary food and refreshments. Michelob Ultra is a major sponsor, and Bluepoint Toasted Lager will also be served.

Participants will have access to race pictures captured by our race photography partner.

PAID STADIUM PARKING
The $10 parking fee is part of your registration fee.

WETSUITS

The average summer high temperature is 84.65° F in July, so we do not expect that the race will be wetsuit legal.  A final measurement will be taken the morning of the race, and results communicated to all athletes at the pre-race meeting.

Volunteers

Volunteers are critical to making an event fun, safe, and enjoyable for athletes and spectators.  We are looking for people for a variety of positions.  If you’d like to volunteer at the Annapolis Sailor’s Triathlon, you’ll receive an event volunteer shirt, post-race party admission, and other goodies.
