Be aware of the entrance and exits from transition. Before your race begins, make sure you familiarize yourself with the swim exit chute (from lake to transition), the bike exit chute (from transition out onto bike course), the bike entrance chute (coming back into transition from the bike course) and the run exit chute (leaving transition for the last time and heading out onto the run course).
Remember where your bike and gear are.
An aid station will be located after the run exit from transition. Make sure to drink lots if it is hot!
This is an off-road triathlon, only mountain bikes will be allowed, no road bikes or cyclo-cross bikes. It is strongly recommended that you familiarize yourself with the course at least once before race day., ideally pre-ride it. Maps are available on the website. The course will be marked with trail flags and signs for race day.
The mountain bike trails are open to the public on race day. Please be respectful if passing, use caution, and listen to the course marshals.
A section of the race goes through Provincial Park campground on the road and is open to camper traffic. We will try our best to divert traffic but all rules of the road apply on park roads.
Slow down for corners and hazards. Watch for wildlife!
Keep your heads up, open eyes and stay safe!
