We are very excited to offer, for the first time, a 50km bike race. There will be two waves. The first one, athletes are expected to sustain an average speed of 25-35 km/hr, with a maximum allowed time of of 2 hours. The second wave will include athletes who are expected to sustain an average speed of 35+ km/hr, with a maximum allowed time of 1.5 hours.
It is recommended to pick-up your race packet, on Friday before the race in the Cafeteria at the Olympic Basin. See full schedule here. If you cannot make it, please make sure you arrive at least two hours before your wave start time.
You must pick-up your timing chip at the green Sportstats tent on race day only near the big white tent. The chip has to be worn on the ankle and returned at the finish line. There will be a $75 fee if you do not return your chip.
Body marking is located near the big white tent. You may "self body mark" to save time. Numbers go on the outside of both arms and outside of both thighs. On your right calf, write you age as of December 31, 2018.
All finishers will receive a finisher's medal. We are currently working on identifying additional awards.
All athletes will receive a light snack at the end of their race.
The Athletes' Quarters have been fully renovated in 2016. We now have access to brand new toilets and showers. On the cycle course, there are 2 port-o-johns located at the “Pits Area”. On the run course there are 2 port-o-johns at the far end of the basin. There are many indoor toilets at the Garage Grand-Prix on the north side of the basin.
Our medical staff will keep an eye on our athletes throughout the race. The medical staff has the right to stop any participant during the race or to disqualify an athlete for his own safety. However, please remember that if a medic stops you, or if you receive medical attention on the course, this does not mean that you will be disqualified.
Please note that we will have numerous "first responders" circling the course. The main medical area with our race doctor is located in the Athletes' Quarters close to the finish line.
In order to receive a massage, you MUST take a shower first (available in the Athletes' Quarters – long grey building along the finish line). Massages will be available near the awards tent for all triathletes for a minimal fee.
