There will be no parking allowed on Reef St. Please park on roads off the bike leg (see maps). The Saunders Beach Community Centre which is on your left as you come down the main road has allowed us to use their carpark: Cnr Saunders Beach and Boat Ramp Rds. It is within walking distance of transition, or alternatively you can drop your gear / athlete off and return to the carpark to leave your car.
There will be an area for bags however we strongly suggest not bringing anything of value to the race site if you are leaving your bag unattended. Bags will not be allowed to be left in transition area.
The Bean Queen Coffee Van will be present at the event (thanks Emma!). She does have EFTPOS facilities if required.
We have organised a BBQ – sausages and soft drink for after the event.
Don’t fill up on snags though because post event celebrations are occurring at Longboards Bar and Grill on the Strand from 2pm.
Thank you for those who have volunteered. We ask all volunteers to be present at 7am. There will be a meeting at 7:15 for all volunteers. We could still do with more volunteers if anyone knows anyone!
You are expected to familiarise yourself with the race course prior to race day.
All course maps are found at the back of this guide.
All competitors should be familiar with Triathlon Australia Race Rules prior to Sunday.
Timing chips will be provided to all competitors (one per team). Fees will be charged to competitors for lost timing bands/chips. Please secure properly before competing and return to the designated timing box at the finish line. Thank you.
Some important points to remember:
Competitors, spectators and volunteers are encouraged to return to Longboards Bar and Grill at 2pm on Saturday afternoon for a bite and drink. Celebrate your successes and support our sponsors.
TAKE CARE AND HAVE A GREAT RACE!
