Master of Persistence

Want to see how quickly these athletes can go solo with no drafting or pacing help? Then the Equalizer is for you! Favouring those with an aptitude for individual efforts, Stage 1 consists of an all-out solo time trial of either swim, bike or run – which the athletes race as a standalone event.

The times taken here will set the scene and define the pursuit style start for Stage 2. Stage 2 is swim-bike-run-swim-bike-run.

There is a single Short Chute to be won on the first swim, and taken on the final run. Any athlete who falls 90 seconds behind the leader will be eliminated. The Equalizer will see the playing field levelled and racing in its purest form!

Stage 1 Athletes race one discipline – either swim, bike or run – as a standalone event or Individual Time Trial (ITT).

or swim 300m
or bike 2.4km
or run 1.8km

Stage 2 The athletes are then set off based on their finish times in the ITT in a pursuit style to tackle a continuous swim-bike-run-swim-bike-run. The winner is the first person across the line at the end of Stage 2.

swim 300m
bike 3.6km
