~~~race details / logistics ~~~      VERY important!!!

In order to serve you better we will need you to pay attention to the following instructions.

Clear bags will be given to all participants at packet pickup on Friday.  In the bag will be a sheet of paper that will need to be filled out with the exact contents and value of the bag.  (This is required by Canadian Customs)  This bag will need to have everything you will need for your transition from Bike to Run (T2).  There will be a sticker with your bib # in the bag.  You will need to affix the sticker with the itemized contents sheet to the outside of the bag.  You will then need to turn in that bag to the staff at packet pickup in order for us to get it to your bike position for the morning.

Once finished with the bike portion of the race, you will need to find your bib # in T2.  Numbers will be in chronological order and marked with tall signs for easy readability when entering transition in a hurry.  Go to your bib numbered bike position, rack your bike and you will find your clear bag with your running gear.  After the race there will be T1 item (swim things) pickup close to T2 transition.  

To Clarify:  Bring ALL T2 (bike to run) transition gear and Passport or Nexus card to packet pickup on Friday.  Everything will be done there.  Please allow enough time.

How do I retrieve belongings left in transition (T1)

There are TWO ways to retrieve swim portion items.

  1. Leave items in the pre-assigned numerical bin (matching your race number) that will located at your assigned bike position in T1.  Those items will then be brought to a pick up point at T2 (in Canada) for you to retrieve.  The ONLY way for you to retrieve these items is to show your AFFIXED body tattoo number that will match the bin number (race number) where you left your belongings after your swim.  This bin will be brought from T1 to T2 for pickup.
  2. Written permission to allow family members to pick up directly from (T1) Gallagher Beach transition.  To expedite paperwork, please fill out and bring form to packet pickup.  Non-race persons picking up items MUST show photo ID described in following form and then they will sign your items out at T1.   print & download form

Will there be shuttles back to T1 to retrieve vehicles?

There will be shuttles to take athletes back to T1.   Transportation of bikes will be limited and could take longer than desirable.  When possible, please try to arrange other means for transportation for your bike as racking for bikes will be limited and not standard in it's methods.  When possible, please try to arrange for your bike to be transported back.
