Pre Race Communication and Information

On the Monday prior to TRi KiDS Burlington a “RACE WEEKEND GUIDE” will be sent to all registered participants.

The Guide is sent to the email address provided at registration and it will also be posted on our home page under the News section. Please review the Guide as it contains very important information.

We receive many emails and phone calls each day during the busy TRi KiDS race season. We do our very best to respond as quickly as possible, however we are often out of the office and away from our computers, particularly during race week. We do not answer calls or pick up voice mail starting on Friday of race weekend. We prioritize emails and respond to the questions pertaining to the race that coming weekend. We post all information related to the events on the website and keep it up to date. We highly recommend checking our FAQ page, the Rules for Safety page and the Race Checklist. We are confident your questions will be answered with these resources.
