All important information can be found in the EVENT INFORMATION and Download section.
Participants will enter the event on the respective day and time that suits them.
There will be 10 waves of 25 participants of mixed ages, gender and abilities - so you will be racing yourself and the clock on the day.
Each Wave will start with a 3km row on a static rowing machine. Once 3km is reached you will transition to the 3km bike on a static bike machine and then finish with a 360 degree swim (250m) of the infinity pool.
Participants will be automatically sorted in to your respective age groups by the timing system.
Each Wave will start at the same time so this means Gunshot Timing - you all have the same start time.
Once you finish with the swim and exit the pool your finish time will be calculated and results issued.
Any participant not completing the full course on the row / bike / swim will be DQ'ed.
We suggest that if you are not familiar with using a static rowing machine or static bike you go down to your local gym and try it out there before race day.
There will be limited time for you to practice on the static rowing machine on race day and will only have access to the machine once everyone from the previous Wave has completed their 3km's and moved to the biking part. Only then will you be allowed access to the rowing machine to try them out before the race starts.
There will be no opportunity to try the static bikes as they will be in use once you start your Wave.
Be checked in at least 30 minutes before the start of your respective Wave.
25 athletes per Wave.
There is NO on-the-day registration.
