  • As stated previously, only road worthy bikes will be allowed in transition

  • Bike racks will be clearly marked – you must rack your bike at your corresponding bike number only.

  • Only equipment that is essential to your race may be left in your transition area. As space is limited, please adhere to this ruling; transition marshals will perform regular checks. During the race, maintain your equipment in an orderly manner. Equipment deemed to be causing an obstruction will be removed

  • From the swim exit T1 – once your helmet is in place and clipped ONLY then may you remove your bike from its racked position

  • Please make way for strong swimmers to manoeuvre to the head of the field. Weaker swimmers should move to the rear of the pack 

  • Safety is our primary concern throughout. The swim section will be well marshalled by boat and canoe cover.

  • If you wish to retire from the swim or find yourself in any difficulties, please remain calm, lie on your back and raise a clenched fist in the air. A boat or canoeist will come to your assistance.

  • If a swim marshal deems it necessary, you may be removed from the water for your own safety

  • There is a safety cut off time of 60 minutes for the swim section. This cut off will be strictly adhered to due to tidal flow and time limit on the shipping channel.
