Can I listen to a music device when competing in the event?

No.  Use of portable listening devices will result in disqualification.

How can I book accommodation for the race?

Check the “Tourism info” section of this website.

Where is the best place to watch the action?

As the race is on the riverfront and the surf club precinct, there are plenty of vantage points for spectators across all legs of the event.  Check out the “course maps” and also consider our tips for enjoying the race:

  • Tell your athlete where you will be on the course so they can look for you as well
  • Know the course; look over the map in advance so you know what to expect on race day.
  • Know your athlete’s wave start time and projected times for each leg of the event. This should give you a good idea of when they will arrive at any point on the course.
  • Allow yourself plenty of time to park. There are plenty of parking spaces in and around the event.
  • Plan to arrive early.
  • Be careful along the course. Please be careful when crossing the course. Only cross at designated crossing points manned by volunteers.
  • Please leave the dog at home! If you simply must take you pet to the race, PLEASE be sure to keep it on a leash at all times.
  • Arrange a meeting spot after the race
  • Remember the essentials; hat, sunscreen, sun glasses and water.

SWIM

How is my wave allocated?

Waves are allocated according to age group divisions.  For age groups with large numbers there may be more than one wave start for your group.

Can I switch my wave?

No.  You must swim in your allocated wave start.

How many people will be in my wave?

Wave numbers completely depend on the total number of participants, but safety is paramount.  On average the minimum number in a wave is 50 and the maximum is 100.

How many minutes are between waves?

This will be decided upon close of entries and advised at the race briefing.

When will the wave assignments be finalised?

Waves will be finalised the week before the race.  The wave start schedule will be available at the Devonport Triathlon registration office located at the Devonport Surf Club. They will also be posted on the website under both “Event Information” – “Wave Starts” as well as “Timetable” – “Wave Starts”

What time does my wave start?

Wave start times will be posted at the Devonport Triathlon registration office. They will also be posted on the website under both “Event Information” – “Wave Starts” as well as “Timetable” – “Wave Starts”

What is the water temperature?

The swim is in the ocean and, therefore, the water temperature can vary dramatically from 15-21 degrees, depending on the weather and outside temperature on the days leading up to the event.

Do I have to wear a wetsuit?

No.  A wetsuit is not essential, however, the water temperature in Devonport gets as low as 14 degrees in January, so it is strongly recommended that you do wear a wetsuit.  A wetsuit will provide you with warmth and buoyancy and will make the swim easier and far more enjoyable.

Is there an aid station at the swim start?

Yes.  There is water available to athletes at the swim start.  No sports drinks will be available, however.

Will there be a swim warm-up?

No.

Can I use any stroke in the swim?

Yes.  You can use any stroke that allows you to see the buoys and stay on course.

How deep is the water for the swim?

The swim will commence from a beach start and will increase to approximately 6-10 metres in depth at the furthest point on the swim course.

If I hang on to the swim cans will I be disqualified?

You may stop and rest during the swim but you must not interfere with the progress of other swimmers.  You may hang on to the support craft or swim cans as long as doing so does not gain you an advantage over your competitors.

EQUIPMENT

Are there specifications for the bike helmets and wetsuits?

Yes.  The bike helmet must be of Australian standards.  Most helmets purchased in Australia within the last 2-3 years will comply.  Please confirm this by checking for a sticker indicating its certification on the inside of the helmet. The wetsuit must not be more than 5mm at its thickest point.  Anyone using a wetsuit should have used their wetsuit throughout their training to ensure its suitability and comfort.

What additional equipment will be permitted in the swim?

None.  Floatation aids are banned.  Use of fins, gloves or any form of floatation device is prohibited.

How does chip timing work?

A computer chip encoded with the competitor’s name and race number will be provided at registration and must be SECURED around the ankle.  This will record your split times when you cross the timing mats located at various points on the course.

Can I wear the chip wherever I want as long as I have it with me?

No.  The strap with the timing chip ABSOLUTELY must be worn on the ankle.

If I lose my chip will I be timed for the race and will I be provided with another?

If you lose you chip before the race starts, see race personnel at the volunteer check-in tent for a replacement.  PLEASE NOTE: Each timing chip is very valuable.  WITH NO EXCEPTIONS, replacement costs will be incurred by any athlete losing their chip.  The cost for a lost chip is $60.00.

BIKE

Are there any aid stations on the bike course?

No.  Please come to the race with a full water bottle or sports drink, which ever you prefer.  There will be water available for filling up your water bottle in the the transition area.

Will there be a bike mechanic available for assistance on race day?

Yes.  A bike mechanic will be located at the east end of the transition area all day.

If I break down on the bike course, will there be any assistance offered?

No. There will be no support on the course throughout the race.  If you break down, please go to the side of the road (off the course) and inform a course marshal or police officer.

Can I use a mountain bike in the race?

Yes.

Can I use a tandem bike in the race?

No.

Do I have to get my bike serviced before the event?

No.  However, it is highly recommended.  Many people experience mechanical problems on race day that could have been easily avoided had they had their bike inspected prior to race day.  You have trained long and hard, so in order to avoid disappointment on race day we urge all competitors to have their bikes serviced approximately 3 weeks out from the event.  Please contact our local bike shop, Derrico Cycles on 6424 3121, for additional information.

TRANSITION

What is transition?

Transition is the area for all competitors to rack their bike and to leave a small bag with a change of apparel for after the swim and for the run if athletes wish to change.  It is the area where you will be based for the transition from swim to bike and bike to run.

The transition area will be located at the Devonport Surf Life Saving Club at Bluff Beach, and will be accessible from 5.15am to 6.45am on the morning before the race, and approximately 15 minutes after the last athlete completes the bike course and has set out on the run.  Ensure you listen to PA event announcements to learn when transition has reopened.  All equipment must be picked up by 12.30pm.  Event organisers will not be responsible for any equipment not claimed after this time.

Why do I have to be in the transition area so early?
