Event Information

The event is held on Sunday 15 November 2020.  

Wave start times for each activity will be finalised in the week of the event, after official entries have closed. 

As the event is point to point, unfortunately there is no bag drop area. 

We do everything we can to ensure everybody has support and completes their race. We are still pending final approvals from Council, so we do not have the exact curfew times yet – but our planning takes into account all the previous athlete times on the course over recent races to ensure everyone finishes (particularly the cycle as it relates to road closures). 

Absolutely – but all bikes must be in a safe working condition. 

Yes, helmets are compulsory to participate in the event. When you enter transition to ‘rack’ your bike, you will need to put your helmet on – at this time our technical officials will check that this is safe to wear for the event. 

You are not permitted to race with any music devices including mobile phones, MP3 players, earphones etc, this is a very serious safety risk to you and the participants around you.
