Event Information
Part of the RACE-MANIA Summit and Expo, the Max Performance Indoor Triathlon is a "staged" triathlon where the swim, bike and run events that make up the triathlon are completed as 3 separate events. The three events are a 1600m dash, a 10k indoor bike time trial and a 200 yard swim.
Location
The 1600m Dash takes place at BU's Track & Tennis Center located at 100 Ashford Street, Boston, MA. The FastSplits Indoor Time Trial and the 200 yard swim are at BU's Fit Rec Center at 915 Commonwealth Ave, Boston, MA. The Track & Tennis Center and the Fit Rec Center are 0.4 miles apart.
Event Description
The Indoor Triathlon is made up of the following three separate events:

  1. A 1600m Dash: This running race takes place on the super-fast INDOOR 200 meter track (complete with banked turns!) at Boston University's Track & Tennis Center which is located about 0.4 mile from BU's Fit Rec Center, the site of all other RACE-MANIA events and activities. The men's heat will be at 10:30am and the women's heat will immediately after (est. start: 10:40am). 
  2. FastSplits Indoor Bike Time Trial (TT): The TT is a 10k race where you bring your bike and we hook it up to one of the CompuTrainers provided by FastSplits. Computrainers simulate the feel of the road with varying degrees of road resistance just like the real thing!  The TT takes place from the RACE-MANIA expo floor at BU's Fit Rec Center.
  3. A 200 yard Swim: The 200 yard swim event takes place in the world-class competition pool inside BU's Fit Rec Center. You will swim 8 lengths of a 25 yard long lane. There will be two heat times and the first heat will begin at 1:00pm. 
Free ROKA Swim Goggles to all participants
The field for the Max Performance Indoor Triathlon is limited to 24 participants and all registrants will receive a FREE pair of RI swim goggles from ROKA (a $30 value!).
Timing and Prizes
Each athlete will receive a time for their swim, their bike and their run and those times will be added up to produce an overall time. Prizes will be awarded to the 3 men and 3 women with the fastest overall times for their gender.
