There are many ways to participate in The Novel CoronaTri, and we know it can be confusing. Here we break down the options so you can choose the one that works best for you.
I want to just swim.
Fair enough. Sign up for "The Swim" and you'll be all set.
I want to just ride my bike.
See "I want to just swim," substituting "bike" for "swim" every time you see it. Or just click here.
I want to just run.
See "I want to just swim," substituting "run" for "swim" every time you see it. Or just click here.
I want to do the triathlon all by myself.
Sign up for "The Triathlon (Solo)" and you'll be entered (automatically) in the swim, bike, and run segments. You'll receive an email describing how to log your efforts for all three.
I want to do the triathlon with my friends (as a team).
Sign up for "The Triathlon (Team)" (that makes you the captain) and you'll receive an email containing a link to sign up for the three legs (swim, bike, and run). Choose the leg you want to do and use that link to sign yourself up. (Yes, you need to go through the registration process twice... once as captain and once to select a leg.) Then send that same link to your two buddies so they can sign up for the leg they want to do. If they don't use the special link, they won't end up on your team.
I want to do the triathlon with people I don't know (as a team).
Sign up for the leg you want to do (swim, bike, or run) and choose "yes" for "Add me to a team" during the registration process. We'll connect you (via email) with two others and let you know which legs they've chosen and how to manage your team.
