AlbanyTri this Sunday 10/16! Online reg ends Wed, Packet pickup on Sat, Volunteers wanted

Posted on Updated on

Online registration for the 2022 Albany Community Triathlon ends Wednesday Oct 12th at 11:59pm, so sign up today if you’re game to compete but haven’t yet registered. Walk-in registration at packet pickup on Saturday or race day on Sunday will be available but there will be a limited number of slots.

Want to save time on race day? Come to packet pickup at Road Runner Sports on Saturday October 15 between 1 – 4:00 PM located at 1326 10th Street in Berkeley. You will receive a packet containing all race day materials including your timing chip (don’t forget to bring it on race day), swim heat assignment, bib number bracelets, and a “special” swag item. Bring a photo ID. You can also review and ask questions about the course, and get a discount on great running & fitness gear at the store. Coming to packet pickup on Saturday also helps us earn money from Road Runner Sports! If you can’t make it to packet pick up, consider sending a family member or friend to pick up your packet — just have them bring your photo ID (or a picture of it).

You can also pick up your packet on Sunday, race day morning at the registration table, if you can’t make it on Saturday. Just be sure to arrive a little earlier (~1 hr before your heat start time). Swim heat assignment will be posted in the AlbanyTri news feed Friday afternoon.

Review our extensive FAQ and course map before race day to get familiar with this event, especially for first-timers or AlbanyTri veterans who need a refresher (this is our first event since September 2019 due to the pandemic).

Relay team members who didn’t sign the online waiver must sign a physical waiver at packet pickup (for minors, a parent or guardian must sign). Packets can be picked up and waivers signed on race day, but doing this on Saturday will allow you to avoid congestion at the registration table on race day and is strongly recommended for all registrants.

Volunteers are greatly needed! We were a little slow this year as we emerged from the pandemic, so our volunteer numbers are not yet where they need to be. If you or your family members are not competing and would like to help make the event run smoothly, head over to our volunteer sign-up page and pick a task & time slot. Many thanks! 🙏🏻

Did you register but can’t compete this year? If so, please let us know! This will help us optimize the swim heats. We cannot refund your registration fee, but we can give you full credit to register for next year’s race.
