Fast Splits Indoor Bike Time Trial
Athletes in the FastSplits Indoor Bike Time Trial will affix their bikes to CompuTrainers for a simulated experience of riding on the road… you’ll freewheel on the downhill and feel the tension increase as you climb the hills that make up the 10k course. The TT takes place on the RACE-MANIA expo floor which is located inside Boston University’s Fit Rec Center. Prizes will be awarded to the fastest 3 males and 3 females.

The Team Challenge
The Team Challenge is a unique competition designed for clubs looking for their first team event of the season. The Team Challenge is comprised of 3 competitive events and by registering for the Team Challenge you will enter 4 teammates into each of these events.  The combined time of all 4 team members in an event creates a Team Time and the three Team Times from each of the 3 competitions is added up to determine an Overall Team Time… fastest Overall Team Time wins!

The 2019 Team Challenge is comprised of the following three competitions:

  • The Marathon Sports 4 x 1600m Relay: A 4 x 1600m running relay race where each member of the 4-person team runs a 1600m; this is a traditional relay race with the Athlete 1 running the first 1600m and then handing the baton to Athlete 2 who then runs their 1600m and so forth. There will be 2 heat times — 9;00am and 9:45am.  The fastest 2 teams will be awarded prizes; this event takes place on BU’s indoor track at the Track & Tennis Center which is located at 100 Ashford Street about 0.4 miles from the Fit Rec Center, the site of all other RACE-MANIA events and activities.
  • The FastSplits Indoor Bike Time Trial: Team Challenge teams have 4 members come to the event with their bikes which are affixed to CompuTrainers. Athletes then race a virtual 10k course that simulates the feel of riding the open roads; the TT takes place from the RACE-MANIA expo floor inside BU’s Fit Rec Center
  • The Relay Team Swim Challenge: This is also a traditional relay team race where each member swims 200 yards. Athlete 1 will swim first and once they touch the wall after competing the 8th length of a 25 yard land Athlete 2 will begin swimming and so forth. The fastest 3 teams will be awarded prizes; this event takes place in the pool inside BU’s Fit Rec Center.
