That’s right, in Williamsburg 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 June 14th)
On Saturday in order to drop off your bike you will need to drive yourself to Jamestown Beach Park at:
Jamestown Beach Park
2205 Jamestown Rd
Williamsburg, VA 23185
It is only about 9 miles away. There will be a drop off zone and limited parking. You will be able to park, check your bike, and then head back to the Expo or your hotel after this is done. We will have security in Jamestown Beach Park (T1) overnight to make sure your bikes stay safe and sound.
Race Day (Sunday June 15th)
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”. These are for all of your gear for T1. In the morning we will have a drop off location for your Dry Clothes Bag outside of T1. Once you finish your swim you will need to put your wetsuits, 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 (Warhill Sports Complex) 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 know who they belong to. We would recommend labeling your bag with the stickers provided and writing your bib number is sharpie on the bags as a back up.
Once you leave Jamestown Beach Park 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 run continuously from the Warhill Sports Complex to Jamestown Beach Park from 4:45am though 7:00am. Shuttles will be available for ATHLETES ONLY on race morning. There will be no shuttles post race. We will board shuttles by race priority all Olympic athletes will go first, once all Olympic athletes are boarded we will board the Half. The number of shuttle buses has been increased from last year to avoid lines and long waits.
You will be able to drop your gear in T2 starting at 4:30am on race morning and then take the shuttle to T1. BIKES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE SHUTTLES.
