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 3 swim buoys. If you need any assistance during your swim leg, please raise your hand and call for one of the lifeguards. The tide will be quite low on event day. 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

(Individuals) After your bike ride you will then head into transition and put your bike back on the rack. You can then remove your helmet and get ready for the run. Once you are ready you will head out towards the transition exit, towards the bridge – which is the same end as the cycle exit. You will then complete your allocated laps before heading down the finish line on your final lap.

Individuals and Teams:

  •  There are drink stations along the run course so please make use of these to ensure proper hydration.
  •  Please keep left on the run course at all times unless overtaking.

Please ensure that you read the full Race Manual which you can find under Race Manual at the top of the page. Any late changes to the briefing due to adverse weather or other considerations may be given during the verbal race briefing on site, as per the above timetable. Therefore, it is important that all participants attend the race brieing.

Also, please note that the Marshals attend as volunteers. They are on site to provide the best possible event in terms of enjoyment and safety. Please abide by all instructions provided by the Marshals at all times. Failure to do as instructed by Marshals may result in removal from the event.
