Trinity Du-Blitz Germiston #3: 26 September 2021

How does it work?

Each heat is 70 minutes apart, with a heat cut-off time of 40 minutes and a mandatory rest period of at least 30 minutes between heats. The quicker you finish a heat, the more time you have to rest and recover before the next one. Didn’t complete a heat in the allotted time? You may race in the next heat, but no points will be awarded for the incomplete heat.

Each athlete will require 2 pairs of running shoes for the race if using cleats for the bike because 2 transition areas are used. The first pair of shoes will be used for the first run & left in the 1st transition area when going out on the bike leg. The second pair of shoes will be left in the 2nd transition area and be changed into once the bike leg is finished.

Before the start of the next heat athletes will be escorted back to the 1st transition area to collect their 1st pair of running shoes. They will then be escorted to get their bike in the 2nd transition area and drop off a pair of shoes for the next heat. Athletes will then be escorted back to the 1st transition area to drop off their bike for the next heat. Finally, athletes will be escorted back towards the start line area before the next heat starts.

It is important to note that after finishing a heat athletes will keep moving and be escorted around the course to ensure social distancing.

The athlete may compete in subsequent heat/s if a particular heat is not completed. There is a minimum mandatory rest period of 30 minutes between heats. There is 70 minutes between each heat.
