10. Teams Only – What do we do with the bib & timing chip?

The bib & timing chip will be given to the swimmer at registration (leg 1) – the bib and timing chip is passed on to all competitors at each transition. It’s like a relay baton. The bib must be the outer most garment at all times. Timing chip must be worn on the left ankle (needs to be close to the ground to ensure an accurate reading). Do not place timing bands on bike handle bars.

11. Where do I put the timing chip?

Your timing chip must be worn around your left ankle at all times. It needs to be on the ankle so it’s close to the timing maps. If you wear this on your wrist, we cannot guarantee you an accurate result.

No – your race bib must be the outer most garment at all times. We need to be able to see your race number at all times. It will stretch.

Certified Bike Helmet to Aust/NZ/US standard. It must be fasten before leaving a transition area.

Any items left at the transition areas will be taken back to the finish line and placed in Lost Property.
