F.A.Q.’s (Frequently Asked Questions)
Where will I leave my shoes / running gear?
Each participant will have their very own designated basket inside the transition area. That’s where you will leave your shoe / running gear once you start on the swim.
My entire family is supporting me! Where can they watch?
All guests and supporters of the participants are advised to stay at the bleachers area. They will not be allowed at any part of the race course. They can also check out the goodies at the expo area by our sponsors.
What happens after the race?
After completing the race (and being an Aquaman! Yipee!), you will get your very own Aquaman Aquathlon finishers medal and post race meal and drink.
Where will I pin my race number?
As a general rule, it’s advised to pin your race number AFTER the swim. It will take A LOT of time if you’ll pin your race number at the transition area. Most triathletes have a race belt which they can just clip on after the swim.
What about the on course nutrition?
There will be plenty of water and electrolyte drink along the race course to keep you cool and hydrated.
Don’t forget to have fun! 🙂
Good luck and see you at the race!
