TRANSITION INFORMATION

Only competitors are allowed inside transition. There are dedicated 'team changeover' zones which you must switch the timing band over in. Please check below for the correct transitions for teams to meet in:

Swimmer: the swimmer will complete the swim then run through the main transition and over to the bike transition zone, where they will meet their bike rider and switch the timing band.
Rider: the rider will complete the bike course, rack their bike in the transition zone, meet their runner and switch the timing band.
Runner: the runner will run through the finish line.
Runner (adventure race): at the end of the run, the runner will change with their paddler at the ski transition zone, north of the finish line on the beach and switch the timing bank
Paddler: the paddler will complete the course, and either run to the finish line or meet all of their team mates 200m from the finish line to make the final dash together.
