RACE FORMAT

SWIM • 300m (25 meter pool) • This will be a wave start event athletes. It starts on lane 1 & 2, swim to the end then go under the lane line onto lane 3 to swim back, then on to lane 4 and finishing at lane 5 which totals to 100m (1 set). Athletes will then exit using the swimming pool stairs and do two more sets starting at lane 1 to finish the 300m swim. This will simulate actual triathlon massed start so seed yourselves accordingly, slow swimmers start at the back and faster swimmers lead the way to minimize contact. • 10 athletes per heat maximum (age-groups can be merged if less than 5 pax) • Click here to see the swim route

BIKE • 10k on the speedometer • 10 identically calibrated exercise bikes will be provided by the organizers, no touching the resistance settings • Cyclometer will be attached in each bike to determine the distance covered by the racers • Indicate to the marshals once you have reached the 10k distance required, only after being given the signal to proceed may you continue on to the final run. • All competitors use the identical bikes, bring your own water bottle

 

RUN • 3k run, 15 laps on our 200m jogging track. • There will be assigned lap counters and athletes must clearly shout their name and race number to be counted. No protest will be entertained in number of laps or miscounting of number of laps. This is just for fun after all….
Top 3 competitors in each age group with the fastest time will be declared winners! Also for HGS members, Top 3 males and females will be awarded too!
