Prior to race day
Q. Can girls under 18-years-of-age race?
A. There is no set age requirement. That said, we do ask that guardians can guarantee without a doubt that the minor can complete the course. Racing on a relay team is a great way to include minors.
Q. Where can I pickup my race packet?
A. All participants must pick up their packet prior to race day at one of our See Jane Run locations. Please go to

Q. Can I get a refund?

Race Day/Course Information
Q. Is there parking?
A. . There is plenty of parking at Shadow Cliffs Regional Park once you are in. The fee is $6.00 per car. There will be a line to get in so we encourage you to carpool or take public transportation. See Jane Run will be selling parking passes in the stores during packet pickup for quick entry into the park. The physical address is 2500 Stanley Boulevard, Pleasanton, CA 94566.
Q. Will there be food at the event?
A. Yes, there will be food for the race finishers.
Q. Is there race day registration?
Q. What should I bring on race day?
Swimsuit (or something to complete the swim in that you can keep on for the bike and the run),
Swim Cap, wetsuit, bodyglide, earplugs, flip-flops, sunscreen
Bike, bike shoes if you have clipless pedals, your running shoes if not, helmet, tire repair kit, water bottles for bike, energy gel/bars, socks, gloves, sunglasses, towel. You cannot race without a helmet! No headphones allowed.
Running Shoes (consider getting lace locks or elastic laces), optional race belt, specific race apparel, running hat
Q. How early should I arrive on race day?
A. The earlier the better. Remember, you need to
pick up your race packet
(if you haven’t stopped by a See Jane Run store already), get your chip, set up your transition area, get your body marking, warm up and get focused. The event opens at 6:00 for a reason – it’s a good time to arrive.
Q. Will there be water available on the cycling and running courses?
A. There will be one water stop which runners will go by twice on the run course. We will not have water stops on the bike course. There will be a water stop by the transition area to fill up bottles for the bike course.
Q. If a racer doesn’t finish the swim or bike, can she continue?
A. We understand that stuff happens. A swimmer may need a tow, or a bike breaks down, but if you’re not up to the next leg it’s best to swallow your pride and look toward next year. In order for a racer to be allowed to continue to the next leg without having finished the previous one, she must be judged fit and able to continue by the officials that pulled you from the race. Our biggest concern is for the safety of all racers. Races who do not complete the entire course will be ineligible for time-based prizes.
Q. How long does the See Jane Run Triathlon last?
A. You can expect to finish the entire race in two to three hours. Then it’s time to enjoy the celebration expo with food sampling, shopping and more. We do ask that fast finishers and spectators of fast finishers wait around until the race is over to avoid congestion on the road and in the transition area. Cheer your fellow athletes while you wait. They’ll love you for it. Park entrances/exit will be closed until all bikes are back in the park; approximately 8:00 am – 10:00 am.
Q. How cold will the water be?
A. The water temperature in Shadow Cliffs Lake is 65° - 80° F degrees.
Q. Should I wear a wetsuit?
A. The water temperature is warm enough to not wear a wetsuit. However, many people don't just wear wetsuits for warmth, many wear them for buoyancy in the water. If you are accustomed to wearing one, you may want to bring it. Just make sure you have tried a wetsuit before race day. We never suggest anything new on the day of your race.
Q. Will there be lifeguards in the water?
A. There will be numerous lifeguards in the water watching over you in boats and on boards. You can not touch a lifeguard during a race unless you are in need of help and must be towed to shore. They take their job very seriously. Please do not argue with them if they have determined you unfit to finish the swim.
Q. Will there be cars on the course?
A. Yes, the 11.1-mile loop will be on the roads with automotive traffic. However, the bike course will be in a coned-off area. Local law enforcement and volunteers will monitor the entire route to help to keep you safe.
Q. Road or Mountain bike?
A. You don’t need a fancy-schmancy bike for an 11.1-mile loop. You’ll see all kinds of bikes on this leg. We recommend using a road bike because it’s faster and more efficient. A couple tips: Figure out how your bikes shifts before race day. Before loading your bike onto a bike rack shift to the lowest gear. The exit out of the park to the course is steep.
Q. What kind of terrain can I expect on the run?
A. Most of the route is on packed dirt, with some pavement. The course is flat except for three short, steep hills (30-40 ft.).
Q. Where will the results be posted?
A. The results will be posted on See Jane Run website by end of day Monday following the race.
Q. When will the photos be posted?
A. the official race day photographer will have photos posted within 2 weeks of the event which can be accessed through
