Aid stations (with water and sport drink) will be available at the exit of transition and at run turnaround point.
These events use the same distances and routes as posted above.
AquaBike – 750m Swim, 20km Bike
Athletes complete the swim, hop on their bike and ride hard. No need for a run!
Aquathlon – 750m Swim, 5km Run
Athletes complete the swim, dry off and head out for a hard run.
The area where everything takes place and in competitive events, the place where a race can be won or lost! In our event, usually a crazy spot as many people don’t know where to find their equipment during the event.
Please place your bike and equipment and then look around to ‘site’ your location—what are you next to, what does your towel look like, what rack are you in, etc. When set up, leave transition and walk towards your bike when coming from the swim.
*NOTE: Transition will remain open once the race starts, but please stay next to your bike to avoid collisions with athletes that are currently racing.
**NOTE: Please have only what you will be racing with placed by your bike. No large bags, buckets or bins are allowed next to your bike.
The concept is simple: 1 person swims, 1 person bikes and 1 person runs. Teams can consist of 2 or 3 people.
The ‘baton’ (timing chip) is passed between each team member in transition. Teams are a great way to take on a triathlon with friends or family. Same sex, or mixed, race in one category.
