You may submit a time or upload a GPX. To upload a GPX first download to your computer and then use that file when you submit your results.

You only need to time your swim, bike, and run.  Because you will not have a secure transition area, transitions may be more cumbersome so you do not need to time those.  Transitions should be reasonable and absolutely may not carry over to the next day. :-)[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-trophy” add_icon=”true” title=”Awards” tab_id=”1546775910709-b9d9a783-a49e”][vc_single_image image=”4615″ img_size=”medium”][vc_column_text]
