Hello 2015 Beaver Freezer Participants!
Thank you for signing up to race the Freezer! Below you will find important information about the race. We will be sending you updates as the race gets closer. Please review the FAQ page of our website before sending emails as 99% of the questions we get are answered in the FAQ's.

Thanks!

Swim Time Updates

The deadline to update your 500 yard swim time is March 13th at 11:59pm. If you have had a significant change in your estimated time, please email us with the updated time. This will make the swim better for everyone, including yourself. Our swim change email is: 500yardswimtime@gmail.com.

Men will be swimming in Langton this year. Women and Relays will be in Dixon. 
 

Start Times

The duathlon will start at 8am. Duathletes (individuals and teams) will line up in the transition area and will start 5 seconds apart in a time trial fashion. All duathletes will start by 8:10am.

The triathlon will start in waves. Start times will begin at 8am and will be assigned approximately every 15 minutes through 10:30am. Starting times are based on your swim time with the slower swim times starting first. Final start time assignments will be made 1 week out from the race and will be posted on the website www.osubeaverfreezer.com.

The Super Fast Wave

The last wave of the day in each pool has been reserved for those of you who want to do more than just race - you want to win this thing! If you think you will place in the top 25 and would like to start in the super fast wave, please reply to this email requesting that wave assignment.

Not sure if you are one of those super fast folks?
We expect the top 25 men to finish in under 70 minutes with the fastest guys going several minutes under one hour. WHOA!

Ladies? We expect the top 20 women to finish in under 80 minutes with the fastest ladies possibly breaking the one hour mark. Zoom, zoom!

Accommodations 

Looking for a place to stay race-eve? Look no further! The Hilton Garden Inn has a block of rooms reserved at a special rate (starting at $112) for April 3-4! This hotel is less than 1/2 a mile from the pool, check in and transition! This special rate is available until they sell out, which is a guarantee. Get your room set up now :-)

Tri 101 Video

New to triathlon or to the Freezer? Last year I made a Beaver Freezer 101 video to help ease your way! You can check it out on YouTube anytime. Feel free to send questions my way. I want this to be a great experience for you.

Nutrition on Course

The run course aid station is sponsored by Powerbar! You can expect a variety of flavors of PowerGels on the run course, along with Perform sports drink and water. During the run, you will pass the aid station 3 times, approximately every mile.

Duathlon and Tri Relay Spots

There is still room in the duathlon and the triathlon relay. If you know anyone who is interested in signing up, remind them to get in before we sell out completely. (The individual tri sold out in a day!)

Packet Pick Up

Packet pick up will be held at Dixon Recreation Center this year! With packet pickup at the race site, you will be able to scout out the pools, transition and the course when you pick up your packet. Look forward to a day filled with seminars and give aways on Friday April 3rd. More details to follow with times and seminar information. 

Packet pick up will also be available on Saturday morning before the race. You can only pick up your own packet, so plan to get it either Friday or Saturday in person.

Wait List

We have moved 4 people in already, so if you are on the wait list, there is still hope! You can also race the du as a tune up race for the coming season.
Thanks again for supporting the OSU Triathlon Club and for your attention. We hope you are looking forward to race day as much as we are!
