Race Format

Triple Mix

Master of Versatility

Throwing the traditional swim-bike-run sequence out the window, the Triple Mix shuffles the disciplines over 3 Stages. It tests the versatility of the athletes and whether they can keep track of what comes next in the heat of battle.

Mistakes in this format are costly, and every second counts on Stage 1 and 2 as they define Stage 3’s pursuit start. At the end of each stage, athletes have a few minutes to reset themselves and their equipment. Stage 1 and Stage 2 are mass starts with the order of swim-bike run and run-bike-swim. The accumulated times across Stages 1 and 2 set the timings for a pursuit start in Stage 3, which is bike-swim-run.

There are three Short Chutes up for grabs – for the first athlete across the Mount Line after the swim on Stage 1, for the first athlete across the Dismount Line after the bike on Stage 1 and for the first athlete across the Finish Line at the end of Stage 1. Short Chutes are won for a Team and awarded to an athlete during the race by their Team Manager. Short Chutes are to be taken on the first lap of the run in Stage 3. No team can win more than one Short Chute.

Tactics for survival are fierce as the 90 second rule is also in place, meaning athletes are eliminated from the race if they fall more than 90 seconds behind the leader after any discipline.
