TERWILLEGAR TRIATHLON CANCELLED
The Terwillegar Triathlon, hosted for 5 years, will be cancelled in 2019. Unfortunately the event has seen a continued drop in attendance over the past 3 years. That, along with an annual increase in facility, roadways, policing costs, and several other factors, has made us make this decision. We would like to thank everyone for their support of the race.

We will start 4 athletes per lane and you will complete either 7 laps/14 lengths (Sprint Distance), or 3 laps/6lengths (Tri it Distance) of the pool. As each athlete completes their swim, we will place another swimmer in to fill the empty spot. The wave starts are estimated start times. Please ensure you are in the pool awaiting your start well in advance of the suggested times. Swim caps are provided in your race kits.
KIDS OF STEEL – Parents be at ease! Your child can use floatation devices! We are all about inclusion, a great experience and HAVING FUN!
• All athletes must wear the swim cap and timing chip/band provided race morning.

KIDS OF STEEL DETAILS
Under 7yrs = 1km(1 lap) | 8-9 Yrs = 2km(2 laps) | 10-11Yrs = 4km (4 laps)
The Kids of Steel Triathlon route will be on a closed course on Leger Road.
Exiting transition to the north of the facility, KOS athletes will ride east along Leger Rd to the Turnaround and then follow it west to the other turnaround and either return to finish (U7 & 8-9 age groups) or complete the next lap.
Sprint = 5Km (2 lap) | Tri It = 2.5Km (1 lap)
The run will head out of transition and cross Leger Road onto the sidewalk and follow it eastward to access the paved pathway. Athletes will turn follow the pathway to the west and then turn south just before the footbridge. Follow the path to the turnaround point and then make a right turn on the path just north of the parking lot. Cross the road and run on the sidewalk back towards the finish/lap area.
Sprint athletes complete 2 laps.
Please be sure you drink lots of fluids on the bike course, as well as take advantage of the aid station on the run course for each lap. The weather can be unpredictable so please dress appropriately.
Volunteers will be on hand to marshal the course and signage will indicate turns etc
Please wear your race number on the front of your jersey/t-shirt (no bare chests allowed).
Under 7yrs = 500m(1 lap) | 8-9 Yrs = 1km(1 laps) | 10-11Yrs = 2km (4 laps)

U7 athletes will do 1 lap(at 250m mark), 8-9yr olds will do 2 full laps and 10-11yr olds will do 4 laps.
This is the area where everything takes place and in highly competitive races, the place where a race can be won or lost!
Please place your bike and equipment and, once settled, look around to ‘site’ your location. What are you next to? What does your towel look like? What rack/row/line are you in? A good idea is to set up your area, leaving transition and then walk towards your bike when coming from the pool.
*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.
*Kids of Steel Parents – Parents can assist in transition for the 7&Under age group. For the other age groups, the child must be on their own in transition.
