For those of you recovering from an injury or just plain hate to run, the Aquabike is here! Register as an individual and select the Aquabike category. Athletes will be required to do the first two legs of the race and then finish. The awards for this category will be given out at the Kinetic Half awards ceremony. Those that choose to race the aquabike category will not have this race count as a qualifying VTS race.

U.S. Half Championship Series:
Set-Up, Inc. is proud to have the 2006 Kinetic Half be a part of the U.S. Half Championship Series for the second year in a row! Athletes have 2 ways to qualify, by time or by placing. How to Qualify

The U.S. Half Championship Series is now the USA Triathlon Long Distance Grand Prix Series. Ultramax Events (founder of the U.S. Half Championship Series) and USA Triathlon have formed a partnership to bring age group triathletes in the U.S. a dynamic long course race series.

USAT�s new �Age Up� Policy:

In 2006, USAT has adopted a new policy governing a participant�s age at USAT races. An athlete’s age for any USAT sanctioned race will be his/her age as of Dec. 31, 2006 . The age he/she is on 12/31 will determine his/her racing age group. If an athlete is due to “age-up” into the next group, it will happen at the beginning of the year, not after the athlete’s birthday. This action aligns regular U.S. age group racing with the method used by USA Triathlon for its National Rankings Program and its new Grand Prix Series.

Example: John Smith is 39 and will turn 40 on November 20, 2006 .
John will be considered 40 for all 2006 races � and will race in the 40-44 age group at all 2006 races.

Sally Jones is 29 and will turn 30 on July 3, 2006 .
Sally will be considered 30 for all 2006 races � and will race in the 30-34 age group at all 2006 races.

USAT Sanctioned:
This race is sanctioned by USAT and we recommend that all participants become familiar with the official USA Triathlon rules.
