REGISTER FOR 2017

Lake Shawnee, Topeka Kansas -

June 17th, 2017

For the 2017 season, Legend Free State is joining with Topeka Tinman to create a new bigger, badder triathlon event!

 

Due to construction on our bike course that is slotted to happen on County Road 458 this summer, it was deemed that it would be unsafe to allow bicycles on the road during the construction due to lanes being small leaving little room for traffic.  (The good news is that the County is widening the roads to make them safer for bicycle traffic in the future.)

 

  Legend Free State will be held in conjunction with the Legend Topeka Tinman triathlon on June 17th.  We will add the 70 and 100 distances to the Legend Topeka Tinman courses.

RULES and TIMING

Transponders are non-transferable! Be careful not to switch your timing chip with other participants. The timing chip must be worn on your ankle at all times or you will not be scored in the event. If you wear it on your wrist, on your bike, in your pocket, etc., you will not be scored. Your timing chip will be removed by volunteers once you have crossed the finish line. Be sure your chip is turned in at that time or at some point before you leave the race. Failure to return a chip will result in a $125 replacement fee charge.

 

 

 

REFUND POLICY

Due to the number of race transfer requests and cancellations that occur in the weeks prior to a race we have the following policy that is in accordance with USAT Policy.

 

Refunds will NOT be issued after a registration has taken place. Considerable effort goes into producing an event such as a triathlon and funds are expended and applied in good faith based on a registration.

 

If you would like to change your registration from one distance to another, you will be charged for the difference in price at the time of the change. If you would like to change your registration from the International distance to the Sprint distance, you will not be refunded the difference in price.

WEATHER POLICY

In the event of inclement weather, the event will be postponed as long as possible in hopes the inclement weather will pass. No refunds or transfers will be issued if the event is canceled due to inclement weather.

 

 

EVENT SANCTIONING

The 2016 LEGEND Triathlon is sanctioned with USA Triathlon. USA Triathlon competition rules will apply. The complete list of rules can be found at http://www.usatriathlon.org/.
