Triathlon BC competition rules
The HPR Youth Triathlon West Shore is sanctioned by Triathlon BC. All participants must be familiar with the TriBC Competition Rules. Download a PDF version of the Competition Rules HERE (PDF) and the ITU Competition Rules HERE (PDF).
Transition opens at 6:00 am on race day. The first swim starts at 7:30 am. The swim will be a rolling start from the youngest to oldest age groups.
Athletes will enter the pool on 5 second intervals. Each swimmer will complete the required number of laps for their age group by swimming up and down on the left side of the lane and crossing under the lane divider after each lap.
The transition area is divided into zones based on age group. Younger athletes who do not wish to rack their bikes on the racks provided may set up on the area adjacent to their zone. All athletes must be out of transition 30 minutes prior to the start of their heat. Participants in the 6-7 age group may have one adult assist with transition set up. No non-participants are allowed in transition during the race.
In lieu of a pre-race briefing at the venue there will be an email distributed the day before the event with all necessary information for participants. The email will be sent to the address used during registration.
The awards ceremony will follow the last heat. Athletes who place in their age group must be present to collect their award. There will be no mail out of awards following the event.
