Please remember to bring photo ID to Packet Pick-Up. No ID, no race! If you have an annual USAT membership, you also need to bring your USAT membership card. Did you know that there are now apps for your USAT card.  I highly recommend doing that as you may forget your ID, but you wouldn’t forget your phone!

iPhone App

Google Play App

Without the card, a one-day membership will need to be purchased at packet pick-up. If you are picking up a packet for someone else,  bring a signed note with a photocopy of that person’s photo ID (and USAT card, if applicable).

 

If your name is not on our participant list (if you are registered for the race, that is highly unlikely), you must present a copy of your confirmation letter to verify that you have registered for this event. If you cannot produce your confirmation letter, you will need to register at packet pickup at race-day rates in order to participate in this event.

Timing Chips: New this year, we will be using disposable timing chips which you will receive with your packet.  Please wear it on the outside of your left ankle, prior to the race. If you choose to wear a wetsuit, be sure your wetsuit is pulled above and does not cover your timing chip.  For best adhesion, please put your chip on your ankle at least 20 minutes before entering the water.

 

Race Bibs: You will also receive a race bib with your individual race number. The race bib must be worn on your BACK during the bike leg and on your FRONT during the run to identify you to local law enforcement and to our course marshals as a Tri Goddess Tri participant. Your race bib must be clearly visible on the outside of your clothing during both of these legs of the race. We strongly encourage you to use a race belt, which will allow you to quickly attach your bib and to swivel it from your back to your front.

Bib Quick Tips:

  • Race bib is clearly visible on the BACK during the bike and on the FRONT during the run
  • Race bib is unaltered and unmodified (do not fold, wrinkle, or remove back tag)
  • Race bib is pinned in all four corners or secured to a race belt
  • Race bib is worn on the outside of your clothing and is not covered (by jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

Bike Number & Helmet Sticker: You will also be given a bike number sticker and helmet sticker that correlate with your bib number. Please adhere your number to your bike for security reasons and your helmet sticker to the front of your helmet. Your bike must have the bike sticker on it in order to leave transition. As you prepare to leave transition after the race, an Epic Races staff member will examine your bike. Please be ready to show your bib number (or your body marking) for us to compare with your bike strip number.

Relay Teams: Relay team members will share the same race bib number. You will exchange the bib number and the timing chip inside the relay tent. For details on relays, check here.

Bike Support: Bike support will be provided on race day by Fraser Bicycle.

 

Bike Leg Information

All participants, whether on a relay team, competing in duathlon or aquabike, or participating in either triathlon distance, MUST wear a bike helmet. Per USA Triathlon regulations, you will not be allowed to compete if you do not have a helmet!

During the bike leg of the race, all participants must wear their race bib so that it is visible on your back. Our local authorities have asked that our participants be easily identifiable on the bike course, so please be sure to put on your race bib prior to leaving transition!

    Is there a bigger map available for the course? This one is really tiny.

    • Eva June 8, 2014 at 8:16 PM #

      The map on the “race day info” page is not a course map. It’s a map of the transition, packet pick up, and parking area- just to give you an idea of the lay of the land. The course maps are on the event page. Toward the top of the page, there is a tab marked “course maps”. Click on that and you will see links to all maps.

      • Lyn June 18, 2014 at 8:33 PM #

        I can make out everything on the packet pick up map except the red circle under “bike in/out”. What does it say? Thanks!

        • Eva June 18, 2014 at 9:20 PM #

          Sorry about that map, Lyn – it’s clearly just for the 39 and under age group! 🙂 I believe that says “trail” – meaning the trailhead for the first run of the duathlon and the run for the mini sprint.

  2. Annette June 9, 2014 at 2:11 PM #

    I can’t make the packet pick up Saturday, June 21st so I assume
    early 5:45am the day of Tri Goddess is ok.
    Thank you

    • Eva June 9, 2014 at 4:31 PM #

      Yes, race day is fine.

  3. Annette June 11, 2014 at 12:51 PM #

    Oops! forgot to ask.
    Is there an open swim before the June 22nd Tri Goddess at Portage Lake?
    Thank you.

    • Eva June 11, 2014 at 6:48 PM #

      We had the swim this past weekend at Halfmoon Lake…. sorry!

  4. Diana June 11, 2014 at 7:12 PM #

    Is the water temp posted somewhere?

    • Eva June 11, 2014 at 7:22 PM #

      It is posted on the race day info page, but this early it is not reliable. A hard rain (like today) or a day of sun and heat (like this weekend) can change the water temperature 5 degrees in a day. Start watching it at the beginning of next week.

  5. LW June 12, 2014 at 9:28 AM #

    Hi Eva,
    If we already know that we would like to switch from the distance we registered for to the other distance how can we let you know that in advance? Or is it okay to just let you know at packet pick-up that Saturday?

  6. Dawn June 14, 2014 at 8:50 PM #

    If we decide to change events,is there still a charge for price difference[but no change fee] For example, I registered early but it’s $20 more for the event I would like to switch to due to later registration

    • Eva June 15, 2014 at 8:04 AM #

      Yes, Dawn. The price will go up because the price of the race has gone up and the computer will see it as a new registration. We cannot avoid this. You can also switch races in person race morning. Please go to the “solutions” table. I suggest arriving a little earlier. We will be sure you are in the correct race! Feel free to email me directly if you have any more questions. eva@epicraces.com

  7. Jen June 15, 2014 at 11:19 PM #

    Is the new bike route an out and bike, Eva? Also, as a newcomer, how difficult is it to find your bike in the transition area? I thought I saw pics of ppl with balloons on their bikes, but is that really needed? Thanks for the help!

    • Eva June 16, 2014 at 10:52 AM #

      Yes, it is out and back.
      Your spot will be numbered so it you pay attention when you leave your bike you should be fine. Balloons, flags, etc. can be helpful. While we do allow this, not all races do so don’t get too used to it!

  8. Meg June 16, 2014 at 7:26 AM #

    Can a friend pick up my race packet for me on Saturday?

    • Eva June 16, 2014 at 10:51 AM #

      Yes, but your friend must have a copy of your id and a signed letter giving her permission.

      • Kim June 22, 2018 at 12:06 PM #

        Is it okay to handwrite a write a letter and email it to my friend with copy of I’d so she can pick up Friday night for me for my race on Sunday? I’m coming from out of town and won’t be there until later that pick up time!

        • Eva June 25, 2018 at 4:36 PM #

          My apologies for the delay. We were not monitoring the website blog over the weekend as we were all at the park with no wifi! I hope your friend was able to get your packet!

  9. Jen June 16, 2014 at 11:53 AM #

    Can we wear wetsuits or no?

    • Eva June 16, 2014 at 2:25 PM #

      Please see the wetsuit rules on our event page for a complete explanation.
      The water temperature is currently 75 which means wetsuits are legal.

  10. Charlene June 16, 2014 at 1:02 PM #

    Are wetsuits allowed for the swim??

    • Eva June 16, 2014 at 2:24 PM #

      Please see the wetsuit rules on our event page for a complete explanation.
      The water temperature is currently 75 which means wetsuits are legal.

  11. Angela June 20, 2014 at 8:37 AM #

    The website says packet pick up starts at 1 but email said 3. Is it 1 or 3? Thank you.

    • Eva June 20, 2014 at 10:30 AM #

      It starts at 3. Where did you see 1?

  12. Ann June 20, 2014 at 10:33 PM #

    Are you allowing the “mini elite” to go off with the sprint elite.

    • Eva June 21, 2014 at 6:50 AM #

      That’s a great question, Ann and I apologize for not publicizing it. We will have a mini elite wave at the conclusion of the sprint swimmers. Any mine sprint participant who expects to swim the 400 in 7 minutes or less will start in the elite wave. Remember that our posted results from past years include the run up to transition. The time I am suggesting does not include this.

      • Ann June 21, 2014 at 12:52 PM #

        Thank you. That sounds great.

  13. Jennifer Boyce June 21, 2014 at 5:44 PM #

    I just read the swimming portion. Do I need a pink swim cap? I am doing the sprint. Or is that for the elite sprinters?

    • Eva June 21, 2014 at 8:22 PM #

      We will supply caps! 🙂

  14. Becky Wilson June 22, 2014 at 12:04 PM #

    Will the race results be posted anywhere?

  15. Janet June 22, 2014 at 1:09 PM #

    I lost my black iPhone 4 at the race. Did anyone find it? Thanks

    • ana July 28, 2014 at 11:40 AM #

      Hi Janet! We’re sorry, but we did not find any lost phones at TGT. Hopefully you’ve found it!

  16. Shannon June 6, 2015 at 10:45 PM #

    Is the starting line for the duathlon by the transition area. Last year started out down by beach but wondered if it’s ok to start where actual start mat is?

    • ana June 7, 2015 at 5:48 AM #

      There is no starting mat, as most start in the water. The first leg of the du starts at the beach, so that the duathlon participants and the first wave of triathletes can start together on the clock.

  17. Helen June 11, 2015 at 3:45 PM #

    Eva, are we allowed to listen to music during the bike and run, as long as we’re aware of traffic and other participants?

    • ana June 11, 2015 at 4:26 PM #

      Per USA Triathlon rules: Headphones, headsets, Walkmans, iOods, MP3 players, or personal audio devices, etc. are not to be carried or worn at any time during the race. Thank you for following these important regulations!

      • Helen June 11, 2015 at 10:01 PM #

        Thanks for the information, Ana!

  18. Janet June 13, 2015 at 9:15 AM #

    Hi,
    The 14:00 minute cutoff for the “elite swimmer” seems a bit restrictive. A quick review of last year’s Sprint results shows 1 swimmer meeting that criteria. I am in an older age group and swam it last year. It was great not having to make my way through wave after wave of swimmers.
    I will not swim with the “elite” swimmers this year because I clearly do not meet the criteria but I am bummed.
    Thanks for letting me vent.
    Janet

    • ana June 13, 2015 at 1:32 PM #

      Hi Janet! Sorry to here that the Elite Swimmer cut-off of 14:00 seems restrictive. For Elites, this is actually a generously timed pace. Remember, this is just the time in the water. It does not include the travel time to the transition area, where the timing mat that ends the first leg is situated. If you’d like to swim with the Elites, you are more than welcome to do so!

  19. Hope June 8, 2016 at 3:31 PM #

    This is my first open water race. How is the swim course marked?

    • ana June 8, 2016 at 3:40 PM #

      Hi Hope! The swim courses are marked by large, colorful buoys. We will go into more detail about the swim course at our mandatory meeting on the beach at 7:15 AM on race-day morning, but you may wish to attend our Triathlon 101 clinic at 4 PM on Saturday, June 25 at the race site to help make your first open-water race more comfortable!

      • Hope June 8, 2016 at 4:16 PM #

        Thank you, that’s what’s I expected. Roughly how far apart are they?

        • Eva June 10, 2016 at 8:35 PM #

          About 50 – 100 meters apart.

  20. Kris June 10, 2016 at 8:05 PM #

    Will the bike course be the out and back course or the around the lake course?

    • Eva June 10, 2016 at 8:34 PM #

      The bike course will go around the lake. You can see the map on the website under “course map”.

  21. Lisa Williams June 13, 2016 at 2:08 PM #

    My 12 yr old is doing the Demi Goddess as her first-ever tri. I’m doing the Sprint distance. Will the Demi wave go before or after the sprint? I need to make a plan for meet-up. Thanks,

    • ana June 14, 2016 at 3:09 PM #

      Hi Lisa! The Demi Goddess division is part of the Mini Sprint, so she will be starting her race with the 18-and-under Mini-Sprint group. Here’s the order that our participants will swim, from the Race-Day Guide. You can always plan on meeting up near the finish line!

      Once all the Elite sprint swimmers are underway, there will be an Elite start for the mini-sprinters. All swimmers who predict finishing the mini-sprint distance swim in 7:00 or less will begin at approximately 7:50 AM. Once the mini-sprint Elite swimmers are off, we will begin the time-trial start based on age groups in this order:

      Sprint (Pink Caps)
      18 and under
      29 and under
      39 and under
      49 and under
      59 and under
      60+

      Mini-Sprint (Yellow Caps)
      18 and under
      29 and under
      39 and under
      49 and under
      59 and under
      60+

      • Lisa Williams June 19, 2016 at 8:05 PM #

        Thanks Ana. Swimming is her weakest sport, so I’m nervous that she will be run over. I’m grateful for the time-trial start! Will they self-seed within that wave? There will be lots of kayaks and SUPs, right? Sorry to be a worrywart. 🙂

        • ana June 22, 2016 at 9:33 AM #

          Yes! She will self seed, and there will be kayaks and SUPs out there. And no worries about worry-warting! I did the same at my son’s first Tri!

  22. Andrea June 24, 2016 at 7:55 AM #

    Is the run a trail or pave.

    • Eva June 24, 2016 at 8:44 AM #

      The run is a combination of paved road and trail.

  23. Monica June 25, 2016 at 4:56 PM #

    Tri Newbie here,

    Will I be able to leave items in the swimming to biking transition area so that I can pick them up after the race?

    • ana June 26, 2016 at 4:17 PM #

      Sorry not to see this until after the race, Monica! You probably found this out already, but we recommend only having your race items — cycling and running shoes, socks, a hat or visor, a water bottle, your bike helmet, etc. on your transition mat. We do have staff and volunteers in transition but anything of value should be locked in your car or left at home.

  24. Lee Kole April 30, 2018 at 1:47 PM #

    Could you provide the pricing structure and cut off dates? Ty

    • Eva April 30, 2018 at 2:41 PM #

      You can see all of this information at trigoddesstri.com in the pricing table.

  25. Margaret May 9, 2018 at 4:06 PM #

    When will the Betty Tri kits be shipped

    • Eva May 9, 2018 at 4:14 PM #

      On or before June 12.

  26. Carolyn June 6, 2018 at 10:47 AM #

    I’m not familiar with the area, but trying to “study”/follow the course maps online. Will the Bike/Run Course be clearly marked (where to turn) Mini/Sprint/Olympic? A PDF of the transition was very helpful, is one available for the swim/bike/run course?

      Yes, it will be clearly marked!
      We will have a pdf of all courses, but some are still being tweaked so those won’t be available until one week before the race.

    The forecast calls for at least rain but likely thunderstorms. Can we swim in the storm? Is there a delay

    What is the current water temperature? The race weekend guide says the date it was last updated was June 9th. Please and thank you.

      Sorry for any confusion. We had not changed it online because it had not really fluctuated. The official water temperature is taken within 2 hours of the race.

    I’m unable to make it this morning due to some hip problems 🙁

    Is there anyway I can still get my shirt? Mailed to me if I pay postage or I can pick up at Ann Arbor location of American Home Fitness?

      Please follow the instructions under “Policies” at the top of this web page. Let me know your size so we can put it aside for you! Sorry you weren’t able to make it to the race. 🙁
