Compulsory Race Briefing from 07:40

RACING STARTS 08:00

Ages specified above as for participants age as at 31st December 2020.

Organisers reserve the right to change the above times without prior notification. All communication will be via email and Face Book (@trisummerseries, @zports & nelsolmandelabaytriathlon).

Race Rules will be strictly adhered to with the Youth and Sprint distance triathlon's allowing drafting (therefore no Trial Bikes may be used for these two events). The Olympic Distance race is STRICTLY NON-DRAFTING (Trial Bikes may be used).

Ensure helmets are crack free and in good condition and ensure your handle bar ends are plugged. Failure to comply with all of these will result in you not being permitted into transition to rack your bike (= no race or refund).

 

CUT-OFF TIMES

Due to increasing costs of Municipal Traffic Services and Venue Hire, we are forced to introduce cut-off times for all future triathlon events in order to keep entry fees reasonable.

For the Championships, the following cut-off times will apply for the Senior Championship race / Standard Distance Duathlon

* CYCLE CUT-OFF = 2 hours 20 min after start of race (a cut-off will apply before start of last lap, anyone cut-off will go straight to transition and may then complete the run with a time penalty for their missed last cycle lap)

* RUN CUT-OFF = no cut-off but prize giving will start at times advertised

 

TEAM SELECTION CRITERIA

Only TSA registered athletes (TSA registered before the event) will be considered for selection (TSA Registered Category entry only).

Any athlete wanting to be considered but unable to attend the event due to illness/injury is required to submit a formal letter to Nelson Mandela Bay Triathlon before the event date.
