Competitors Brief

Swim Briefing Summary

If you are a slow or not a confident swimmer, please start at the back of the line. The course is clearly marked with the swim buoys. If you need any assistance during your swim leg, please raise your hand and call for one of the lifeguards. We will have marshals as you enter the water moving participants away from the shoreline and closer to the middle of the pond. Please only move to the shore if you require assistance.

Bike Briefing Summary

(Individuals) After your swim you will head to transition and put on your helmet. Once you are ready you will take your bike off the rack and walk it to the mount line. Please don’t ride your bike in transition or on the way to the mount line. Once you pass the mount line you will get on your bike and ride the course. You will then get off your bike at the dismount line and walk your bike back to transition before starting the run.

Individual and Team Cyclists:

  • Please keep to the left of the bike course at all times unless overtaking.
  • Please ensure you have a drink bottle on your bike to stay hydrated.
  • Please ensure your helmet is secured from the time you remove your bike from the rack until you put your bike back on the rack.

Run Briefing Summary
