The 2020 IronEdge Stroke & Stride Series

May 5th / 12th / 19th / 26th May 2nd

The IronEdge Stroke & Stride Series offers athletes a fun, fully supported 1 or 2 lap swim in Smith Mountain Lake, followed by a 3.5 mile run Tuesday evenings throughout the month of May. The perfect warmup for athletes competing in Ironman 70.3 Roanoke.

Many participants make their open-water swimming debut in the beginner-friendly Stroke & Stride 750 meter event, while more seasoned athletes get the thrill of competing alongside others in the 1,500 meter swim. Live timing, post race food, and series prizes.

RACE DAY REGISTRATION: Race Day Registration opens at 4:30 p.m. We accept cash or credit card on race night (no checks).

 

PACKAGE ENTRIES: Discounted "4-Pack" entries are also available. A “4-pack” guarantees you a spot on the starting line at all 4 races during the series. “4 Pack” entries cannot be shared between athletes (we do check photo ID at chip pick-up).

 

 

 

Refund & Bad Weather Policy

 

Once accepted, entry fees will not be refunded for any reason, however credits may be issued for weather-related cancellations (please see "Single Event" and "4 Pack" paragraphs below).

 

Entries cannot be transferred between athletes, or between Stroke & Stride events. A single-event entry is good only for the night it was purchased.

 

Thunderstorms are common and typically move through fairly quickly. We may delay the start up to 30 minutes to allow a storm to pass. Smith Mountain Lake water safety staff will determine if the storm has moved, or will move, an adequate distance for a safe race. We reserve the right to shorten or eliminate the swim portion if our water safety personnel determine that the weather conditions are unsafe.

 

Single Event Stroke & Stride Entrants: If the swim is cancelled prior to the start of the race, swim/run participants who have paid the single event entry fee may participate in the 3.5 mile run-only, and will also receive a $10 credit toward another stroke & stride event in 2020.

 

Sorry - no credits will be issued if the swim is shortened before the start, or if the race is shortened or halted after the start due to weather. If an event is completely cancelled prior to the start, then all bibs and chips must be turned in at the registration tent, and a full credit will be issued which may be used at any future Stroke & Stride event in the 2020 season.

 

“4 Pack” Stroke & Stride Entrants: If the swim is cancelled prior to the start of the race, 4 pack holders may choose to participate in the 3.5 mile run-only, OR may turn in their bib and chip at the registration tent and the race will not count as one of their four 2020 races. If they choose to return their bib, they may not participate in the run. Sorry - no credits will be issued if the swim is shortened before the start, or if the race is shortened or halted after the start due to weather. If an event is completely cancelled prior to the start, then all bibs and chips must be turned in at the registration tent, and the event will not count toward that athlete's 4 races.

 

Swim Only Entrants: If the swim is cancelled prior to the start of the race all swimmers will receive a future “swim only” credit to be used at an upcoming event. The credit can not be carried beyond the final event in 2020. No credits will be issued if the swim is shortened, or if the race is shortened or halted after the start due to weather.

 

 

Race Cancellation Information;

 

We do not make any decisions to cancel races due to weather until shortly before the start on the evening of the event.
