When you arrive at packet pick-up on race weekend, you will be asked to rate your swimming ability on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the strongest, using the [SWIM ABILITY CHART] as a guide. This swim ability will determine the starting order of the swim for race day participants.

There will be a FREE transition clinic during Packet Pick Up at Inside Out Sports from 3-3:30pm for participants of the South Charlotte Ramblin’ Rose Triathlon.

Races are held, rain or shine, unless Set Up Events determines that conditions are too dangerous. This will be based on a prudent decision made on race weekend or race day by Set Up Events and local law enforcement officials. If the race is canceled due to inclement weather there will be neither refunds nor transfers. This position is consistent with USA Triathlon recommendations and with the protocol of sharing the risks associated with the sport of triathlon. In the event of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances, Set Up Events reserves the right to alter, cancel or eliminate any/all portions of the race.


Race entries are non-transferable between events, years, and individuals. No exceptions will be made!

If you are unable to participate for any reason, you will be able to request a refund until exactly one month to the day prior to race day. Refund requests received after this deadline will not be processed for any reason. There is a $31 refund processing fee (roughly equivalent to 50% of the early registration fee) and all additional portions of your entry fee will be refunded back to your method of payment.

All refunds must be made through the registration provider (RunSignUp).
