After completing the swim, the swimmer passes the electronic chip to the cyclist inside the cycle transition area next to where the cycle is racked. The cyclist must not put their helmet on or take their cycle off the rack until receiving the electronic chip.
The cyclist completes the cycle course and passes the electronic chip over to the runner in the transition area only when the cycle has been placed back on the rack and their helmet has been fully removed.
The runner completes the run and hands in the electronic chip at the finish line.

Did the race in 2019
Gorgeous bike and run routes. Loved the Tri but felt it lacked some crucial organisation. You can't rack bikes or enter transition until 20mins before your start time, which is a little frustrating. If you have a later time it means hanging about and tight rack space. The car park is huge so not sure why transition zone wasn't bigger. Not many marshals on bike route and quite a few people came off bikes due to slippy roads. Swim was hectic, lots of people didn't stick to overtaking etiquette. I feel like the event needs more volunteers! Despite this I thoroughly enjoyed it, very friendly atmosphere and lovely routes.
