An Aquathlon is a multisport race consisting of continuous run and swim elements. Competitors complete a swim immediately followed by a run over various sprint distances. Athletes compete for fastest overall course completion, including the time transitioning between the disciplines.
For the swim, it will be a non-wetsuit swim. Only race legal speed suits (no rubber or neoprene) will be permitted. All athletes must wear the swim cap provided and start in their allocated wave. Only swim goggles or masks are permitted. No other swim aids of any kind are permitted. Only official lifeguards on kayaks and rescue jet skis are allowed on the swim course. Swimmers may use the kayaks and jet skis for aid should they require assistance so long as there is no forward momentum, which would result in disqualification.
For the run, a shirt or full-length tri suit must be worn at all times. No iPod or similar headphone devices allowed. Race numbers must be worn on your front during the run
All participants will be presented with a finisher medal.
