Who Can Enter
Anyone who is at least 13 years of age as of race day can enter the Pigman Triathlon. The field will be limited to 750 participants.
This category allows all that have a legitimate shot at winning the Pigman and the opportunity of not having to race through the crowd to get to the front of the pack. Elite racers will start in the first wave(s) of the race. One of these individuals will most likely be the overall winner of the Pigman. However, Age Group or Clydesdale/Athena participants starting at a later time can end up as the winner of the race if their net time is faster than the Elite racers.
To enter as an Elite racer you must indicate your preference during the completion of the entry form while signing up for the race.
Note: Participants of the Elite category are not eligible for Age Group awards and race management has the final say as to who will be allowed to enter this category.
Age Group Category
For this category, participants will race against others determined by their USA Triathlon age. This age is how old your are on December 31st of the year. Pigman age groups are: 13-14, 15-17, 18-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84 and 85+.
To enter as an Age Group participant you must indicate your preference during the completion of the entry form while signing up for the race.
Instead of racing against others determined by an age, this category allows participants to compete based on their weight. If you are a man weighing 220 pounds plus or are a women weighing 165 pounds and over you qualify to race in the Clydesdale/Athena category.
To enter as a Clydesdale or Athena you must indicate your preference during the completion of the entry form while signing up for the race.
If you meet the weight requirements of this category you are not required to enter the Pigman as a Clydesdale/Athena. The Pigman will not select the category. It is up to the individual racer to select, the Clydesdale/Athena, the Age Group or the Elite category. A Clydesdale/Athena will not be eligible for duplicate awards. There will only be one division for men and one for women.
Relay Team Category
Relay Teams are welcome at the Pigman Triathlon. Competition is relay style with two or three separate individuals. One participant will do the swim, one will do the bike and one will do the run.
There are three divisions in the team category. The Male division team is made up of all male members. A Female division team is made up of all female members. The Coed division team has members from both genders.
To enter as a Relay Team you must indicate your preference during the completion of the entry form while signing up for the race. You will also be required to choose a Male, Female or Coed division during this process.
Note: You cannot race as both an individual and as a team. For two person teams, one of the participants will do two of the events.
A club will consist of a minimum of 5 individual finishers. Each club must also include at least two female finishers. Club racing does not replace the Age Group, Clydesdale/Athena or Elite categories. Club members still race as individuals but they are also scored via cross-country style for their club.
If you are not familiar with cross-country team scoring, here is how it works. If scored by hand you would go through all the results and throw out any finisher not on a team. Then you see how many there are who finished for each team. If any team has less than five finishers and or less than two female finishers, they are thrown out and movement occurs again. Finally, the places of the top three male and top two female finishers on each team are added up. Low score wins.
To enter as a Club, you must include the club name during the completion of the entry form while signing up for the race.
