Trinity Tri-Blitz Germiston: 24 October 2021

How does it work?

Each heat is 60 minutes apart, with a heat cut-off time of 40 minutes and a mandatory rest period of at least 20 minutes between heats. The quicker you finish a heat, the more time you have to rest and recover before the next heat. 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.

Please note that 2 transition areas will be used. Before the start of the next heat, athletes will be escorted back to the 2nd transition area to collect their bikes. Athletes will then be escorted back to the 1st transition area to drop off their bikes 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.  

Covid-19 Protocols

  • Temperature scanning, sanitising & signing a register is compulsory and will be done upon entry to the park.
  • Only athletes will be granted access, no spectators allowed.
  • No vendors are allowed on-site.
  • Masks must be worn between heats.
  • During the rest period between heats, athletes will be moved to different areas at different times to ensure social distancing. The course has been designed in a way that no athlete will come into contact with another athlete outside of a heat.
  • After the third heat has finished each athlete must collect all their belongings and leave the venue immediately.
