Event Information

The triathlon is held on Sunday 6 December 2020.

The fun run and ocean swim is held on Saturday 5 December 2020.

Wave start times for each distance will be finalised in the week of the event, after official entries have closed. 

Yes, each triathlon participant receives a timing chip as part of their race pack which is to be worn on the left ankle. For Relay Teams there is one timing chip which must be passed to the next relay member. Results are released online by late afternoon of the event. 

We do recommend you leave all valuables at home however if you have a bag & personal belongings you can leave this in the bag storage area whilst you race. Bag storage varies by location so make sure you check your Race Guide.  

It’s too early to tell at this stage. An indicative temp will be taken the day prior and the official water temperature will be checked the morning of the event. 

Wet suits are only permitted at less than 20 degrees for opens, and less than 22 degrees for age groupers. 

We do everything we can to ensure everybody has support and completes their race. We are still pending final approvals from Council, so we do not have the exact curfew times yet – but our planning takes into account all the previous athlete times on the course over recent races to ensure everyone finishes (particularly the cycle as it relates to road closures). 

Absolutely – but all bikes must be in a safe working condition. 

Yes, helmets are compulsory to participate in the event. When you enter transition to ‘rack’ your bike, you will need to put your helmet on – at this time our technical officials will check that this is safe to wear for the event. 

You are not permitted to race with any music devices including mobile phones, MP3 players, earphones etc, this is a very serious safety risk to you and the participants around you. 

All teams wishing to set up tents will be asked to do so in the designated areas. With the event operating in the centre of town it is important for the safety and consideration of competitors, spectators and locals that team tents are only erected in permitted areas. Call the office if you would like some more information.
