TEAM RELAY DETAILS
A relay team may consist of 2 or 3 people. In the case that an athlete is doing 2 of the 3 sports please keep the timing chip on through transition.
Relay teams members must all be present at check-in and body-marking. Each team member will be body marked and the timing chip will be given to the swimmer.
The swimmer will complete the swim; exit the pool and run to GYM 1 (where the bikes are set up). The cyclist will be clipped in and the distance on the computer will read zero. The swimmer will pass the timing chip off to the cyclist. The cyclist is not required to wear the timing chip, but must have it on their person or on their bike. Following the 12.5km bike the cyclist will hand off the chip to the runner without dismounting the bike. The runner will secure the timing chip on their left ankle, run out of transition and up the stairs to complete their 3km run. Relay team members are encouraged to cheer their runner in the spectator zone of track 1 and at the finish line to celebrate the team effort.
