HEAT assignments for 2015: Heat assignment table listing for all participants

The goal of the triathlon is to raise funds for Albany Athletics Boosters (high school & middle school athletic programs), promote fitness in the community, and showcase just how fun a multisport event can be! The tri is also part of Albany Local Week, celebrating the city of Albany's offerings.

The event is open to everyone ages 9 and up, especially those who've never done a triathon before but would like to give it a go on an easy, local course without a huge financial (or training) committment.

Online registration is no longer available, but a limited number of slots will be available for race-day registration on-site.

Special Features:

CHIP TIMING: New for 2015: Participants will have their per-leg splits and overall finish times tracked using a chip timing system. This will provide much more accurate and timely results than the manual entry system we used in the past. The additional cost for chip timing should be mostly offset by the slightly increased registration fee this year and additional sponsorship fund raising.

TECHNICAL T-SHIRT: New for 2015: Save your cotton tees from previous years of the Albany Triathlon as collector's items! All registered athletes who show up on race day will get a technical t-shirt (quick-drying synthetic fabric, sport-cut). You'll get your shirt and other swag when checking in on race day morning.

INDIVIDUAL & RELAY TEAM ENTRY. Register as an individual or as a part of a multi-person relay team where different people do different legs of the event (swim, bike, run). Relay teams consist of 2-3 people and will compete against other relay teams in the final rankings. Teams can be composed of adults, all youth (18 & under), or mixed adult + youth.

YOUTH & STUDENT DISCOUNTS. Youths 9-12 years of age get $10 off the individual entry fee; youths 13-17 years of age get $5 off the individual entry fee. Youth teams (under 18) save $20 off the relay team entry fee. Current students of any Albany Unified (AUSD) K-12 school will save even more by receiving a $10 refund after completing the event!

FAMILY & FRIENDS HEAT. When you register, you can indicate your desire to be in the same heat as other participants (child, parent, spouse, friends, etc.). Then you can start in the same swim heat together & keep an eye on each other during the race (but not assist each other, per triathlon rules).

BEAT-A-TRIATHLETE CHALLENGE. Athletes can boost their fundraising efforts by pledging to donate an extra dollar amount for everyone that can beat their time, up to a limit. Relay teams can also register for this challenge. Here's how it works:

POST-RACE FESTIVITIES. Stick around after the race to recover with some healthy food, check your race results, sign up for a free massage, and schmooze with fellow participants, spectators, volunteers, sponsors, and race organizers. An awards ceremony (new for 2015) will take place at Noon.

Training Clinics:

Steve Trutane (race co-organizer) is holding some training clinics for anyone that wants to improve their swim skills and general strength in preparation for the AlbanyTri event.
