Race and finish your sprint triathlon. Then sit back and relax while we check the fastest 20 individual finisher times (combined males and females across all waves). KINDLY NOTE: no team times will be considered for this race. No athletes racing in the super sprint race will be considered for this race.

These 20 athletes will race once more to determine the winner of the day in a super sprint race:
400m swim
10km bike
2.5km run

There are 9 prizes up for grabs (as determined only by the Showdown race times):
Top 3 swim times
Top 3 bike times
Top 3 run times

Want to win more prizes? Then earn more top 3 times in Showdown!

Example: the race winner had a top 3 swim time and top 3 bike time and thus wins 2 prizes.
