Tony & Lance Panigutti are certified USA Triathlon Organization Race Directors

Without Limits Productions LLC, has applied for Sanctioning for this event through USA Triathlon Organization, the national governing body for triathlon. As a sanctioned race, and as USAT Certified Race Directors we intend to comply with all guidelines and best practices developed by USAT, Without Limits, Lory State Park, and Horsetooth Reservoir, that are specific to this race. Insurance will be provided through the sanctioning process, and will list Lory State park, and Larimer County as additionally insured specific to this event.

1.) The First Aid/Medical plan is attached. The brief overview is that we will comply with USAT guidelines and provide 1 lifeguard for every 50 athletes in the water. The lead kayaker provided by WLP, will set up to monitor and aid any struggling swimmers on the course. Additionally all Without Limits Staff are American Red Cross certified lifeguards, first aid, CPR, and AED. Certified EMTs provided at the expense of Without Limits Productions will be on site with Ambulance and available for medical emergencies.
2.) Without Limits will provide an insurance certificate naming “Lory State Park” and “Larimer County” as additionally insured prior to the race. Insurance will be obtained through USA Triathlon Org. with the coverage limits according to the Colorado State Parks Special Activity Agreement as well as Larimer County Special Activity agreement.
3.) The Sanitation requirements and needs previously discussed and agreed upon with Lory State Park will include the park facilities/restrooms being open and available to use. Additionally WLP will provide temporary Port-o-lets at the Start/transition area. According to the direction of Lory State Park, and the recommendation of the port-o-let rental company there will be 1 restroom unit available for every 50 athletes. These will be strategically placed with 6-8 port-o-lets at the transition/start area. Additionally Lory State Park restroom facilities are available and open for use with their permanent restrooms located at the finish area

4.) After our initial discussion with park staff we do not foresee any Public Safety Issues/Conflicts with other park visitors. Park entry and parking for the racers and spectators has been discussed with maximum limits in place and designated parking areas available. Park entrants will be provided with a pre-approved entry certificate. WLP will include a dashboard vehicle pass with race registration materials. Racers will place pass inside their vehicle identifying their vehicle as part of the special event. Without Limits Productions will contract Great Events Parking company to handle parking direction for the athletes, security of the transition areas, and all other areas used during the event will be the responsibility of WLP staff.
5.) Food for the athletes/spectators will be located at the finish area, and be provided by Wahoo’s Fish Taco’s Catering. Water and electrolyte drinks will also be located at the finish area. A Health Certificate will be provided to the park in the event a food vendor is utilized and it is required.
6.) Event registration is handled both online and through mail in registration forms. online registration will be used for registration. Direct registration links and downloads will be on our website
7.) Marketing and Promotion of the event currently consists of the XTERRA Lory Course preview video, email, print posters and registration forms distributed throughout Colorado, targeted magazine ads (Competitor magazine, etc…), all pertinent website postings, Racing Underground’s Timing website calendar, USAT and regional calendars. Additionally for 2013 the race will be listed on the international website of XTERRA Planet ( and the American Tour. Xterra is the licensing entity, with the race owned and produced by Without Limits Productions in accordance with the best practices developed by WLP, USAT, XTERRA, Lory State Park, and Horsetooth Res. Agencies. All printed materials must be pre-approved by park management prior to distribution.

Without Limits Productions will post a sign at the park entrance 2 weeks prior to the event to notify visitors of trail closures, event time and date. Additional signage at the Horsetooth Park entrance will be posted on the day prior to the event for notification.

We will also provide the park with flyers/brochures for advertising at the visitor center posting and distribution.

All of the event will take place within Lory State Park and Horsetooth Reservior.

Transition Area:
The transition area is a secured area where the athletes temporarily store their gear to transition between disciplines. The TA will be placed near the East Valley Trail area, approximately 100-200 meters west of North Eltuck Bay. Lory State Park will mow the transition area prior to the race (no later than 3 days prior to the event as to allow time for WLP to remove any excess cacti after mowing).

Swim course:
The swim portion of the event will take place within the Horsetooth Reservior, N. Eltuck Bay. The course length is to be set at 880 meters, delineated by large inflatable orange buoys. With the approval of Horsetooth Res. we will put in place the temporary anchors with small 6” round slalom course buoys the evening prior to the race. The morning of the race we can quickly clip on the large orange buoys.
Additional Swim Course Safety Contingency plan is attached, and can be modified to include any best practices that either Horsetooth Res. or Lory State Park have identified or would like to be included in the race
