Schedule

Virtual Race Bag/Athlete Guide and Race Briefings: The Omaha Triathlon does not require mandatory race briefings. However, a voluntary but recommended race briefing for any participant or athlete that would like to review the course, USA Triathlon Rules, and event information prior to race day. This is especially recommended for less experienced triathletes and relay team members. We will have optional race briefings at GreenStreet Cycles the week of the race and approximately two weeks prior. GreenStreet will host a preview ride of the course following these course briefings.

All participants receive a virtual race bag containing all the necessary information to prepare for race day the week of the event. It is the responsibility of each participant to review the information and the event schedule. This includes information on their wave start times, transition, courses, USA Triathlon rules, and other useful event information.

Packet Pickup / Registration: Each pre-registered participant must pick up their own race packet at the designated location (location and time TBA). Due to the large number of participants, requiring packet pickup prior to race day avoids and prevents many events concerns by participants. Please present proper identification at packet pickup. Unless you have previously authorized a proxy, packets may not picked-up by anyone other than the athlete.

Annual USAT members will need to show a current USA Triathlon Membership Card and a Photo ID to the Registration Staff. If either the participant fails to bring a current card or does not have a current USA Triathlon Member Card, a $15 USA Triathlon Fee is required to participate in the triathlon. If you purchased a $15 USA Triathlon single day membership, we should have that information at registration. Only annual memberships receive a member number from USA Triathlon.

Bike Drop-off for the Omaha Triathlon:

We require mandatory drop off by 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 20.  Participants must walk or ride their bike to the transition. No parking will be allowed in the transition area.
