Two Transition Areas

That’s right, in the Pocono Mountains you get not one, but two different transition locations. This may seem a little different but no worries, we have all the complications figured out for you…

Set-Up and Bike Check In (Saturday September 13)

On Saturday in order to drop off your bike or to do the practice swim you will need to drive yourself to Second Pond:

Race Day (Sunday 14th)

When you pick up your packet you will receive two plastic bags. One says “Swim to Bike Bag” and the other says “Dry Clothes Bag”.

  • What is the dry clothes bag for? – This is for all of the clothing you wear to swim start, sweats, sweatshirt, shorts, etc…
  • What is the swim to bike bag for?- This is for your wetsuit, goggles, swim cap, and any other items you wore during the swim.

T2 (run out) will open at 5:00am on Sunday morning. Once you arrive at T2 you can set up your run gear. After you have finished that you can jump on a shuttle, which will be right outside of transition, and ride to T1. Shuttles will be running from 5:15am to 6:45am.

T2 Map:

After you have arrived at T1 and before you walk to the swim start you will need to drop off your Dry Clothes Bag in a truck outside of transition1. Once you finish your swim you will need to put your wetsuit, goggles, cap, etc in your Swim to Bike bag and leave it by your transition spot. We will come and pick up all bags and bring them to T2 (Shawnee Inn Resort) for you. PLEASE REMEMBER TO LABEL YOUR BAGS WITH YOUR RACE NUMBER (stickers will be provided). We cannot return them to you if we do not where the belong.

Once you leave  (T1) on your bike you WILL NOT be able to come back. Transition will be closed. If you have a question regarding this, please e-mail info@rev3tri.com.

Shuttle Service For Swim Start

To better plan your race morning, the shuttle ride from T2 to T1 is approximately 20 minutes. The shuttles will be running from 5:15am to 6:45am

You will be able to drop your gear in T2 starting at 5:00am on race morning and then take the shuttle to T1. BIKES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE SHUTTLES.
