    I just learned about the practice timed course this Sunday. Can anyone sign up for it even if he/she is not registered for the official Naples Tri this year? Will the bike course be marked? How many are you expecting for the practice course?

      Marcy, Thanks for reaching out!! Yes. The practice is open to everyone, there is a $20 drop in fee. We will have full transition & swim buoys out. The course is OPEN for traffic so everyone is expected to obey ALL TRAFFIC LAWS. We are timing everyone to give a ballpark figure for the upcoming race. Please arrive early to set your bike up. Thanks for choosing Leapfrog!! See you Sunday!!
