The expected water temp in September, is between 65-69º.
At the swim start, please look for the signs for average 100 yard swim paces and seed yourself according to your swimming ability.
From here we will be conducting a rolling start. What does this mean? We will funnel athletes through a chute, approximately 10 feet wide, into the water. Once you cross the timing mat, your race time starts. Why the rolling start? If everyone seeds themselves correctly, it’s safer, reduces congestion, and athletes can start together with friends and family members regardless of age/gender.
All distances begin the swim by entering and finishing on the southwest lake. Thank you Still Water Estates for letting us play in your lake for the morning!
SWIM CAPS ASSIGNMENTS:
Long Course - Pink caps
Olympic Course - Green caps
Sprint - Red Caps
Kids - Green Caps
The Sprint course consists of a single 750m loop, while the Olympic course consists of a single .9 mile loop.
The Long Course swim is a 1.2 mile swim consisting of a small .2 mile loop, followed by a full 1 mile loop around the perimeter of the lake and east island.
Still Water is 8’ deep and is about 60’ wide. In the event that you need to get out, it’s easy to get to the side of this lake.
Water safety folks on Kayaks and SUP’s will be monitoring the water portion of the event.
If you find yourself in need of support while in the water, simply wave your hand/ arms or swim to the nearest support team member. You may hold on to any support vessel without penalty as long as there is no forward movement. If, for any reason, you need to cut your swim short, let the water support team know and give them your race number.They will bring you to back to land.
In 2022, we will have a single transition area. T1 and T2 will be at Still Water Lakes Resort.
Per USAT rules, you also risk a 2 minute penalty if you do not place all items in your T1 gear bag. DO NOT LEAVE valuable items such as phones, keys, etc. in your gear bag.
In your packet, you will receive two bike stickers. The small one is for the front of your helmet. The larger rectangular number is to be affixed on your bike frame. They are designed to be wrapped around your seat post or seat frame.
Olympic and Long Course participants will receive a wristband. Wear this wristband on your left wrist during your race. It enables Antelope Island personnel identify you as participants of Brineman.
A FEW RULES TO REMEMBER:
1. Helmets are required at ALL times on the bike course. Be sure your helmet is strapped before you exit the transition area, and do not release your helmet strap until you have racked your bike. (USAT rules!)
2. No Headphones at anytime on the course. No music playing from your phone. If you carry your phone, you cannot pull it out to take pictures, play music or call your buddy. If there is an emergency you are witnessing, you may use your phone after you have stopped and dismounted from your bike)
3. NO Drafting. We have USA Triathlon officials ready to dish out penalties to those who draft. Drafting is considered riding three bike lengths behind another rider.
ENTERING ANTELOPE ISLAND.
When you enter Antelope Island, follow the cones which will direct you to the far right of the entrance. They will be zig zagged on purpose to force you to slow down. Antelope Island officials are requiring you slow down for a moment to collect bib numbers. (sorry its just part of the rules)
Be sure that your neon green wristbands are visible as well.
It's important to know and familiarize yourself with race rules. We strongly encourage you to visit www.usatriathlon.org for all the rules of triathlon!
Please see below for PDF's of the 2021 bike courses. This will give you a good idea what the course will be similar to in 2022. NEW 2022 Courses will be updated soon.
Athletes will dismount just before T2 and get ready for the fast and flat run.
NOTE: There will be two (2) aid station on the bike course for the Long Distance Course. There are no aid stations on the bike course for the Olympic and Sprint Distance Courses.
Due to the road and area construction of the new multi-lane highway, the run course will not be finalized until closer to event day. The run course will be, however, flat and fast!
REMEMBER, Red signs mean Run. Blue Signs mean Bike.

Litter could jeopardize the life of this and any other event. In addition to littering not being cool, USAT officials may give you a time penalty for littering on the race course, in transition or at the start/finish-line.
All athletes are required to retrieve any gel packet or water bottle that is discarded during the bike. A USAT “abandoning of equipment” time penalty will result if littering is witnessed by a USAT official. Please also keep control of all gel packets during the bike and run.
You will also need to park at Jensen Nature Park and walk ¾ mile to the start. There is absolutely no parking at the start line or on surrounding roads per Syracuse City Police Dept.
Parking is at Jensen Nature Park in Syracuse. There is a large field on the Nature Park property and a church adjacent to the park. Please use these locations to park. Do not park on Bluff Street.

SAFETY / MEDICAL
Medical personnel will provide on-site first aid and medical assistance if needed. They will be located at the start and near the finish line.
Lifeguards on kayaks & SUP’s will be monitoring the water portion of the event.
Let’s get real- We don’t know what we’d do without the fun loving people that come out and give their time to support events. PLEASE show them the utmost respect and freely pass out “Thank you’s” and high 5’s!

TIMING CHIPS, BODY MARKING, AND AFFIXING YOUR BIKE AND BIB NUMBERS
Volunteers will be there bright and early to get your body marked with your race number. Listen for those enthusiastic people calling out for body marking and head on over to get it done. Your race number will be marked on your left arm.
You have two bike numbers. The small one is for the front of your helmet. The larger rectangular one is for your bike.
You must attach the bike number provided in your race packet to your bike. The bike numbers have adhesive on the back that will not harm the paint on your bike frame. Failure to securely attach the number will result in a USAT time penalty.
You DO NOT need to wear your bib number during the swim or bike. However, it MUST be worn during the run, facing forward (not sidways, not backward). Safety pins will be provided at packet pickup.
*Your entire team must be present together before your packet will be issued.
Relay teams will be issued a single timing chip, bike number, and run bib number. The chip hand-off takes place inside the transition area at the assigned bike rack. You must attach the bike number provided in your race packet to your bike. It has an adhesive backing that will not cause damage to your bike frame. Failure to secure the bike number will result in a USAT time penalty. You DO NOT need to wear the bib number during the bike. However, it MUST be worn during the run.
You will have your very own space in the transition area. Look for your race number. This is where you will rack your bike and place your race gear. Place your gear to the left of your bike, under your bike.
Rack your bike by placing the nose of your seat on the bike rack so your front tire is sticking out. Please remember, your neighbor needs room too, so please only bring what is needed into the transition area.
Remember there is no bike riding inside the transition area before or during the event. Doing so will result in a time penalty enforced by the USA Triathlon officials.
ALSO please help us by letting your family and friends know that they must wait outside the transition area. Thanks for helping us with this!
