The Kachemak Nordic Ski Club and Homer Saw and Cycle will host the Sea to Ski Triathlon starting at Mariner Park at the base of the Spit.

            Registration will be from 10 am to 12 noon at the Gazebo at Mariner Park, on race day.  The entry fee is $15 for students, $20 for adult members, and $30 for adult non-members.  An additional $5 late fee after 12 noon. Teams will be required to pay per person for each member on their team.

All participants will be required to sign a waiver.  MINORS WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAVE A PARENT SIGN THE WAIVER FOR THEM TO PARTICIPATE.  Bicyclists will be required to wear helmets.  There will be a REQUIRED race meeting at 12:30 to go over safety rules and the race will start at 1:00.

            The course will consist of a 5 km (3 mi) run from Mariner Park to Homer Middle School; a 7 km (4 mi) mountain bike ride from Homer Middle School up West Hill, across Highland and Sprucewood Drives to the Roger’s Loop trail head; and a 5 km (3 mi) ski route which will depend upon the snow conditions.  Tentatively the ski leg will end at the Sterling Highway trail head near the DOT station.  Distances are approximate.  The Chief of Course reserves the right to modify the last leg depending upon snow conditions.

            Teams will consist of three members or the complete course can be done by one individual (APRIL FOOL STYLE).  An individual can not also be on a team.  An awards ceremony will be held at 3 PM.  Sand dollar medallions will be awarded to the top team in each category and to the top three ironmen and ironwomen.  Prizes will be awarded by draw from waiver slips for all participants and volunteers who are present at 3 PM. 

            Team categories will be men, women, and mixed.
