Event Bulletins

 

Welcome to the 10th Annual MiltonMan Triathlon presented by the Steel Valley Triathlon Club. 

Please note the following bulletins to ensure a safe and rewarding race experience.

 

  • NOTE NEW TIME: Online registration will end August 10.  Race day registration and packet pick up will be available from 7:15 - 8:15am

 

  • Packet pick-up will include picking up your event packet/envelope which will include your bib, frame number, timing chip and strap.  You then will be shuffled down to pick up race T shirt.

 

  • PARKING: Parking for this race is at The American Legion Lot at 16465 Milton Ave, Lake Milton, OH 44429 with Meshel Park less than 3/4 mile west at 16950 Milton Ave, Lake Milton, OH 44429. You have 2 options:

 

Option #1.

We will allow you to drive through the park and drop your bike and gear. It must be done quickly though...the park rangers will shoo you out after a few minutes!  We will have "Drop Racks" located at TA for you to temporarily place your bike while you park your car.  After dropping your gear, go park your car at the American Legion Lot, and then head on back to the TA.  We will have a truck with a trailer in which sometimes athletes can jump aboard and hitch a ride on the trailer!

 

Option #2. 

Park the car directly at the American Legion Lot, and then carefully ride your bike with gear/walk to TA. 

 

 

  • Approved BIKE HELMETS are MANDATORY.
  • NO Drafting on the bike course.  Please keep a minimum of THREE bike lengths unless passing or you willbe put in TIME-OUT!
  • The lake is approx. 6-20 feet of depth all the way around in a large open water state park lake.  The water temperature in August will be in the mi 70's and if the temperature exceeds the USAT limit, wetsuits will be ILLEGAL.

Bike Course: 16 miles/24 miles

BIKE COURSE ADJUSTMENT for 2017

The MiltonMan bike is noted for being smooth and fast!  The course is a "lasso"-style route in which the participants will ride .6 miles on the park drive to the "main loop".  Once on the main loop, the sprinters will do 2 laps of the loop and the olympians will do 3 laps of the loop.  The 2017 loop is now a COUNTER clockwise direction making mostly LEFT-hand turns. The 2017 event is NOW USAT SANTIONED and USAT bike course rules do not allow any bike course cross-overs.  The 2017 counter clockwise direction eliminates bike course crossovers   

DO NOT pull back into the park drive until ALL laps are completed.

Run Course: 3 miles/6 miles

The run course is an out-n-back run course that takes runners over the Mahoning Ave bridge using the park path adjacent to the road.  The course is flat with the exception of a small hill approx. the 2.4 miles mark.  1 lap for the sprint and 2 laps for the olympic.

AQUABIKE - Aquabikers will complete bike course, exit through transition out and run approx 100 yards through the finish chute.  (I guess, so technically it is a "triathlon" with a 1500 meter swim, 24 mile bike, and a 100 yard run)
