Still no athlete guide or updated participant list but the schedule is up at least. It says rolling start for the age group race, I assume that means self seeded? All of my races have been wave starts, do we have to submit our estimated time at some point or we just hop in the wave we want to be in?
Bib list/guide usually comes out like 2 weeks before. I'm hoping that because next week is thanksgiving they'll get it done tomorrow but we'll see. Schedule was very late (4 weeks out instead of 8-10 as promised).
I think almost all races at this point are rolling start, at least in the US. They'll have people with signs so you just slot in to the time you expect. Be aware of people around you, too many 50+ minute 70.3 swimmers like to seed up. If you expect to be faster than 33, you should be fine as at that point I feel most people are honest.
Btw, the schedule does note the wetsuit decontamination process on Saturday. Plan for that.
