Swim to Bike Transition
Swimmer will exit the pool and run/walk to the bike transition area where their team member will be waiting for them, it is important to NOT cross the timing mat until the timing chip is transferred to the cyclist, if the swimmer is also the cyclist,they can run straight to their bike.
Competitors try to do this as quickly as possible, taking off a wet suit (if applicable) and racing in swimmers, tri suits or tri kits.
Always clip on your helmet before taking your bike off the rack.

Bike Exit
Jog or walk your bike to the bike exit where, once your bike is over the mount line, you can get on you bike. Take care of other competitors. It is often wise to move down the road ahead of the competitor traffic at the line to get yourself some space!

Bike Course –
Our race is sanctioned and we have the assistance of  volunteers on course. Please stay left unless overtaking and be always aware of any parked vehicle, pedestrians or resident’s vehicles which may be on the course. Please pay attention to race officials at all times.
You must follow all road rules

Bike to Run Transition
You must hop off your bike before you cross the mount line. Return bike to your rack and run to your team runner, transfer the timing chip to your runner.
If your cyclist is also your runner, they must cannot remove their helmet until they have racked their bike, they can then remove their helmet, change shoes and commence the run leg of the relay

Run Exit
A sign clearly marks the run exit but if you are ever confused please ask a transition official.

Enticer will complete 1 lap of the course, Sprint x 2 turning at the drink station to commence their 2nd lap

Finish
The best part of the race! The timing transponder mats are underneath the finish arch, and your foot (with the band attached) must pass over these plates. Once you cross the line proceed through the chutes towards the marshals who will remove your timing band.

We encourage all team members to wait on the track for their runner and join them on the last 100m of the run and cross the finish line together as a team for the finisher photo!

Recovery Area & Food Packs
Fruit and water recovery product will be available in the Recovery Area post race

The Presentations

Presentations will be held at the  Athletics track building once all teams are finished. Please join us in supporting the athletes.

Removing your bike from the Transition area
The transition area will be reopened again after the last competitor exits for their run leg. When you take your bike out of the transition area please ensure that you show both your ID wristband and your bike numbers to the officials at the transition exit.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Mackay Teams Triathlon Relay!
