Thank you for making this event your first triathlon! There are many more people like yourself who will be racing this type of event for the first time. Please note that if you register as a Novice, you will be scored in the Novice division, not your Age Group. By registering as a Novice you will start the race in the last wave of athletes. As of 4/27/15 there is no novice category for pool swim triathlons since athletes are seeded based on their estimated time in the pool.
Below are links to additional information that you will want to review before race weekend.
