There will be one Transition Area adjacent to the finish. The transition area will open at 5:30 a.m. on Sunday (race morning) and will be closed approximately 15 minutes before the start of the first wave. Only volunteers, staff, and registered athletes are allowed into the Transition Area at any time. You must be body-marked before entering Transition (relays included), and have a safe, approved helmet and will have their bikes inspected for USAT compliance. Once you complete the race, you will not be allowed back into the Transition Area until all of the cyclists are back, or the bike time cutoff is reached.
The Sebago Lake Triathlon will finish near the transition on the grass in front of Xavier Hall.
Aquabiker’s time will stop when they finish the bike and enter transition. They can rack their bike, and make their way over to the finish, to return their chip, get their medal, and enjoy the BBQ.
Parking is conveniently located on campus a short distance from the transition area. PLEASE COME TO THE VENUE ONLY VIA Rt 302 to White Bridges Rd and turn right on to Wisterlea Way coming to campus and leave by making a left out of Wisterlea way. This will allow to you leave after your event is complete while we still have cyclists coming and going from campus. Thanks for your assistance making the event as safe as possible for all participants.
Relays are required to hand off the chip at their designated bike rack spot only. The cyclist cannot remove the bike from the rack before being tagged by the swimmer. The cyclist cannot tag the runner before re-racking the bike. The overall time for a relay will be the aggregate of times for each of the members.

Transition Clinic – Presented by Coach Brian Yates
A transition area at a triathlon is the designated area where participants transition from one leg of the race to another. The transition area is typically located in a designated area near the swim finish and bike start.
In a triathlon, there are two transition areas – T1 and T2. T1 is the transition between the swim and bike legs of the race, while T2 is the transition between the bike and run legs of the race.
The transition clinic is a session or briefing held before the race to provide participants with information on how to efficiently transition between each leg of the race. The clinic may cover topics such as how to set up your transition area, what to wear, how to quickly change from swim gear to bike gear, and how to efficiently change from biking shoes to running shoes.
The transition clinic is a great opportunity for participants to learn and practice the skills they need to transition between each leg of the race successfully and efficiently.
