DEFERRAL POLICY HAS CHANGED. 

NO DEFERRALS PAST FEBRUARY 23, 2023. BIBS AND EVENT ARE ALREADY IN PRODUCTION.

A LITTLE NERVOUS? DON'T WORRY!

Your USAT Certified Race Director will be holding a pre-race briefing on rules, swim, transitions, course overview and more.  The briefings will be held at 1pm & 3pm on Saturday Feb 25th. 

Meet at the front of the Village Cycle Shoppe. 

ALL Athletes are HIGHLY encouraged to attend one of the pre race briefings as there is new and important information about both the bike and run segments of the race.

How do I know if I'm registered?

Please check your e-mail inbox/spam box for "HAKU registration", "HAKU" or "HAKU Receipt". Haku is the name of our registration platform and should you have registered, the system automatically sends receipts to your inbox. 

If you were registered by someone else, it would arrive in their inbox. 

-

What about my deferment from last year?

If you deferred form last year, you are NOT automatically entered into the next event. Our system sends out a unique registration link to deferred entry runners to enter themselves into the event. Sometimes, the e-mail gets sent to the spam box that runners usually miss it. Please send us an e-mail if you deferred and we will get you your registration link.

Note: Deferments from 2021 are only valid if you deferred PRIOR to the event. No shows and no written requests for deferrals forfeit their entries.

-

Do I need a USAT License?

2022 registrations did NOT come with the purchase of the one-day USAT license. If athletes do not have a license, one MUST be purchased at packet pickup or ONLINE HERE (CLICK ME). If you already have one, bring your USAT license (phone image accepted) for validation. In a relay, each athlete must purchase a license. 

-

When do I get my race stuff?

Packet pickup is held one day before the event AND the morning of the event. You may ONLY pick up YOUR OWN packet (family members may not pick up for someone else, unless a minor). This is a USAT rule requirement. We highly encourage athletes to pick up the day BEFORE the event as we require you to show proof of a USAT license.

Saturday packet - 11am - 5 pm, Cocoa Village Bike Shoppe

For GPS: 4 Harrison St #105, Cocoa, FL 32922

Located OUTSIDE the building under the tents. Have ID/USAT license ready. 

Sunday Packet - 5am - 630am, at race site, cocoa village park.

Tent/Tables will be located right next to transition. 

-

What do I need to race?

Race Timing Chip - A neoprene ankle bracelet with your race number will be handed out on THE MORNING OF THE RACE. It will be located right outside of transition. This anklet must be worn at all times. Timing chips will be collected at the finish line as you cross.

Bibs + tags - A running bib (affixed on your shirt or shorts) is only needed for the run portion. A bike tag must be affixed prior to entering transition area. 

Wristband - A wristband with your race number must be worn throughout the event. This way we are sure that your bike belongs to you as you are entering/leaving transition.

Helmet - No helmet, no race.

Wetsuit (optional) - USAT rules state that competitors may wear wetsuits if the water temperature is 78 degrees or lower. The DJ at transition will announce water temperature & if you are eligible for a wetsuit. Annoucnements will be done every 20 minutes. Water test was performed on Jan 20, 2022 and this event WILL BE WETSUIT LEGAL. Water Temp: 60F

Body Marking - If you have a sharpie at home, you are allowed to do your own body marking. We will also have body marking helpers available at packet pickup and on race morning inside transition.
