Weather Contingency Plan
In the event of foul weather, the start time of this event may be delayed by up to
1 hour. Should the weather conditions be unsafe for the swim, this event will be
changed to a bike-run with distances of a 11.2 mile bike and a 3.1 mile run. The duath-
lon will use a time trial start based upon the swim wave order. If the weather makes
it too dangerous for cycling, the event will become a 5 Km run for all participants..

OUR MISSION
1o educate, motivate, and inspire people and communities to live a healthier
lifestyle through a balance of health, ñtness, and nutrition.
Dear Friends:
Welcome to the 2014 Jack’s Generic
Triathlon, where you’re more than just
a number, you’re a barcode! It’s our
second year at beautiful Lake Pfugerville
and we’re happy to be back with sprint,
intermediate and relay events. This is the
12th Annual JGT but just because we’ve
been around the block, doesn’t mean we
aren’t trying to continuously improve.
For 2014 we’re starting the swim as a
time trial start. This is the frst year at
JGT for this type of start and we think
you’re going to like it. Another change
we’re making this year is adding more
awards to the lineup. So instead of just
age group awards for each category and
fnisher medals for all who cross the line,
if you’re fastest in transition, the swim
portion, bike portion or run portion,
you’ll get a great gift card to an awesome
local business.
We hope you enjoy this 5th event of the
Texas Tri Series!

Time Trial Swim Start
Each wave, with the exception of the Open wave, will be a time trial start. The time
trial start consists of starting one person at a time at approximately 2 second inter-
vals. Participants will start with their assigned wave (eg. Intermediate, Men 40 &
Over), and will line up within their wave on a frst come basis. The time for each
person will start when they cross the swim start timing mat at the water's edge. We
think you will like this new way to start the swim - no more mass swim start!

You’re not lost. You’re with us!
1. Check your goggles, check that the strap
and nose bridge are not going to break on the
start line or during the swim, check that the
seals have not perished. If the lens is scratched
consider a new pair for racing and keep the old
pair for the pool.
2. Check your wetsuit for potential tears, check
the seams are not frayed and likely to split, if
so get it fxed in enough time. Also look for
holes and cuts, these can be glued and stitched
to prevent water entering the suit and to make
the suit streamlined.
3. Check Your Bike. There is a lot to check
here so if you don't know what to do, get down
to your local bike store (and try to learn). Noth-
ing is worse than athletes arriving at the pre
race inspection needing a new frame or another
wheel for safety.
4. Check your helmet, the plastic shell needs
to be frmly affxed to the foam and the strap
should not be frayed and needs to ft frmly.
Check that there are no cracks or dents as these
will likely not pass in a pre race check.
5. Check your running shoes. Look to see that
they are not worn out of alignment or that the
midsole is crushed. Also check that the elastic
laces or the laces and toggles are working well.
Check that they are washed clean and dry.
Before your triathlon, have a system in place to check your equipment. It
is recommended that you start with what you’ll use frst in the tri and work
through to the equipment that you will use last.
Safety Pins
(not included in bag) May be used to secure
your race number onto your shirt. They can
be picked up at packet pickup.
Bib & Bike Numbers The large number included in your participant
bag is worn after the swim and can be used with a race belt or pinned
onto the front of your shirt. The small sticker with your number is for
the front of your bike helmet. The other plastic number is for your
bike and can be attached with twist ties to the seat post or top tube of
your bike. Please use each one of these numbers.
Latex Swim Cap
Please wear the cap
provided; it corre-
sponds to your swim
wave and serves as
part of the event safety
plan.
Wristband Gets you
into transition & is
used to get food & beer
at the after party. Yel-
low is for those over 21
Red is for under 21.

Here is a logical progression that you may want to go
through when you get to the race site:
1. Arrive Early! A half hour won't be enough
time to get everything done. Give yourself an
hour, even more if you can, so that you won't
be rushed.
2. If you did not pick up your packet before-
hand, make sure you leave registration with:
Race Number and pins, Swim Cap provided
by race, bike frame number, and helmet num-
ber.
3. You will need to get Body Marked. Make
sure you pick up your Timing Chip and Vel-
cro strap that gets worn around the ankle. You
may choose to pick up your timing chip after
you have racked your bike.
4. After body marking take your bike and
gear with you to the transition area (the big
fenced in area with the bike racks) and claim
a spot of real estate for yourself. There's noth-
ing worse than arriving with plenty of time to
spare, but forgetting to rack your bike FIRST,
and then ending up with little or no room to
lay out your gear. You can 'rack' your bike by
either hooking the seat over the top rail of the
bike rack or by hooking the handlebars/brake
levers over the top rail. The choice is yours -
whichever works better for you. Take a look
around to see what others are doing, and then
follow suit. Once your bike is racked, you
can drop your gear next to it - there should be
time to lay it out neatly later. You can pump
your tires up beforehand, or in the transition
area - the choice is up to you. Please be con-
siderate towards your fellow participants and
do not hog space in the transition area. There
should be enough room for at least 6 bicycles
on each rack.
Now that your bike is racked and you have
your stuff from registration, andif you arrived
early enough, you should have plenty of time
to get ready to race. Here’s what to do next:
1. First off, you need to do something with
that race number. You have to fnish the race
with the number on the front of your body, so
you can either use the pins you were given to
pin it to the shirt you’ll wear during the race,
or you can use a number belt if you have one.
The number must be worn during the run.
2. Next, organize your gear next to your
bike. It’s a good idea to have a towel on the
ground to lie out your stuff. Make sure you
have your bike shoes and running shoes
laid out in the open with the laces open so
they are easy to get into. Have your helmet
either on the ground near your shoes or on
your handlebars, with the strap undone so
it’s easy to put on. A good idea is to have
your helmet sitting upside-down with your
sunglasses in the helmet. That way, you
put on your sunglasses and then follow that
with the helmet and it’s hard to forget ei-
ther. Next to or underneath your running
shoes you may want to place a hat for the
run because the sun can get pretty hot by the
end of the race. Make sure you have your
water bottle(s) flled before the race as well.
3. You should be pretty organized by now
so you can use any spare time to familiar-
ize yourself with the fow of traffc once
the race starts. Figure out where the swim
fnishes and where you’ll have to run to get
your bike. Locate a fxed landmark (gar-
bage cans may get moved) or count the
number of bike racks to your bike, so that
you don’t get lost looking for your bike.
It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack
if you don’t have some idea where to start.

(Continued from pg 14)
4. After the swim, you will enter the transition at one end and
leave at the other. When you return you reverse things. That
is, the bike starts and fnishes at the same side of the transi-
tion area, and the run goes out where the swim came in.
5. It's also a good idea to do a walk or warm-up run of the
start of the run course and fnish. That way you won't get lost
starting the run and you'll have some good landmarks as you
near the fnish line. It's always nice to know when you are
nearing the fnish line, so if you have some visual cues you'll
be more comfortable.
6. The best advice for any new triathlete is to get to the swim
start early and do a good warm-up in the water. The swim is
often the most daunting part of a triathlon and open water
swimming is different than pool swimming. When you can't
see the bottom and there are no lane ropes people often freak
out a bit and then they have trouble swimming. Factor in any
trouble navigating and you've got a long swim on your hands.
Take some time to get comfortable in the water and with the
fact that you can't see as well. Practice sighting the buoys
so that you won't get lost. The more time you spend getting
comfortable, the less time you'll spend panicking.
