Race Day

SWIM WAVES AGAIN

The change last year to the swim waves worked GREAT and we got lots of great feedback, so we are doing it again!  The changes included set times for wave starts by age and the new zig-zag swim pattern in the pool.  All athletes still have to have their gear set up in transition by 8:45 am.   The wave times for each age group will be set soon -- this will be the time that you must be in the pool lobby ready to be marshalled on to the pool deck.

Wave times for each age group are below.  Click on the distance beside your age group to see the diagram of your swim. 

 

RACE DAY PROCESS

  1. Get body marked.  For safety reasons, all competitors will be marked with permanent ink with their race number.  If you are biking (individual or biker on a relay team), you must have your helmet on in the body marking line-up.
  2. Get helmet checked. Our crew will be doing helmet checks while you are in the body marking line-up.  If you pass (see helmet checklist here), you will get a sticker.  If there are any issues, you will move to a designated area after body marking and someone will help you.
  3. Set up gear in transition.  Triathlon BC rules require only athletes and our volunteers be allowed in the transition area.  Show your helmet sticker to a volunteer at the secured entrance, get a biek security sticker, then proceed to the racks for your age group and set up your bike and other equipment (towel, shoes, etc).  Experienced volunteers are available to help if you need it.  Make sure your race plate is pinned to the shirt you will be wearing for the bike and run.  The race number must be on the front and visible.
  4. Go to pool lobby for marshalling based on your wave times.  See above for wave times for your age group and listen for the marshalling announcement for the pool.  All athletes must be body marked and have gear in transition by 8:45 am.  Swimmers please enter the pool area from the Rec Centre lobby.  Spectators please enter from the door on the opposite side of the pool.

YOU MUST SHOW YOUR RACE NUMBER (BODY OR RACE PLATE) TO REMOVE YOUR BIKE AND GEAR FROM TRANSITION AFTER THE RACE IS OVER
