How the Relay Works

The Swim

The swimmer of each team will make their way to the swim start. The swimmer will be allowed a 5-min warm-up before exiting the water and positioning themselves at the swim start for the race. Once called to the starting position they will be placed in the starters hands and race will begin with the sound of a horn. After completing the swim course, the swimmer will exit the water making their way to transition.

Once in transition the swimmer will run to their team cyclist located next to their bike rack and exchange the timing chip. All timing chips are to be passed down to the next athlete and worn on the left ankle at all times of the race.

The Bike

The cyclist stands next to his bike waiting for their team swimmer with their helmet fastened. Once having received the timing chip and fastening it to their ankle, the cyclist leaves transition by running to the mount line and then making their way onto the course.

After completing the bike course the rider will dismount their bike at the dismount line and run to their allocated team bike rack. The cyclist must keep their helmet on until they have handed the timing chip to their team runner.

The Run

After receiving the timing chip, the runner will leave transition and make their way to the run course. The runner will go through the finish arch upon the completion of race.

5 Reasons to train for a triathlon race

  1. Your workouts will become versatile. Tone your muscles in the gym, swim in the waters of your choice, bike in the beautiful nature, and run in your favourite park.
  2. You’ll become a better biker. Might come in handy if you bike to work on a daily basis. You’ll still have to stop at red lights, but beating the traffic will be history.
  3. You’ll become a better swimmer. Safe to say, you don’t swim to work, but while on vacation, your swimming skills might come in handy. One more reason to book a trip to the beach.
  4. You’ll become a better runner. Never miss another train or bus. You won’t even need public transportation. You will just run, like Forrest.
  5. You’ll get in shape and lose weight. Have you seen our pro-athletes? Their bodies are on fire. Light your fire today!
