I'm competing in a Just For Fun category - do I need to compete all of those laps in the pool or on the bike?
Just for Fun teams do not advance, so if you just want to do one lap in the pool or on the bike and then continue - go ahead!

When will I know when I advance?
All results will be posted on the Storm website by 8pm on the same day.

Where is registration and where do I leave my bike?
The biker, runner and wall person check in at cycle transition to register. The sprinter and swimmer check in at the pool.

Do I need a race number to participate
Your swimmer will get stamped and your runner get's your team race number. No one else on your team will have any identification number.
