How does the swim work?

To avoid having all the athletes entering the water at the same time, competitors are divided into “waves”. Each wave will consist of no more than 100 swimmers to give you plenty of room to swim and enter transition smoothly. Check the information board for your swim start time or view them under each event on the website in the week leading up to your race. Note that tentative category start times are listed but MAY CHANGE the week of the race. Specific wave starts are listed on the website Thursday of race week. 

Can I wear a wetsuit?

The water temperature is taken the morning of the race and if the water is 22 degrees or above then it is a non-wetsuit swim. If the water temperature is below 22 degrees, you will be given the option of wearing a wetsuit. It is not a requirement to wear a wetsuit if the water temp is below 22 degrees. Open-Elite Waves may be required to race without a wetsuit at lower water temperatures as per TA rules.

Is there somewhere to store my bag?

If you have a bag & personal belongings, you need to take this out of the transition area and leave this at the bag storage area which is located in the Registration Tent from 6:30 am. A tag from your number bib will be attached to your bag so we know which bag is yours when you come back to collect this.
