Essential Event Information:

Athlete Check-In

Check-In for all competitors will take place on the Friday the 13th April (1pm - 6pm) and Saturday 14th April (10.30am - 3.30pm) in the Check-In Tent at College St, Sydney.  IT IS COMPULSORY FOR ALL TRIATHLETES TO CHECK-IN DURING THESE TIMES.

You must also show identification (Driver's Licence, Passport etc) to check-in and your Triathlon Australia Licence if you are a member.

A race number and ID wristband will be issued.  You will also be given a bike security sticker, helmet sticker, EYELINE swim cap and timing chip with band. Please check all the numbers on each item match and you have been given the correct colour swim cap for your wave start. These can be changed at the athlete help desk if they do not match or are not correct.

Your ID wristband must be on your wrist on Saturday to enter transition and stay there for the Race Start on Sunday. This is your identity throughout the race.

You will also be provided with your event bag which will include your official sponsor items.

Team Check-In

Teams will receive 1x race number, 3x ID wristbands, 1x bike security sticker, 1x EYELINE swim cap and 1x timing chip with band per team (ALL team members must wear the timing chip, passed from each team member like a relay baton).  It is only necessary for one team member to register for their team, however, they are responsible for passing on the team kit to the other team members BEFORE race start.


No competitor will be accepted after Check-In closes on Saturday and we cannot be responsible for you arriving late. Please allow for mishaps when making travel arrangements.

PLEASE NOTE:  It is AGAINST RACE RULES for someone to race under your name or for you to race under someone else's. You will not be insured while racing if you do this. It will also result in suspension from your State Triathlon Association and you will be banned from any future USM EVENTS events.

Bike Check-In

Compulsory for all individuals and at least one team member. Bikes to be racked by individuals and team members on Saturday 14th April (12noon - 4pm).

Your bike will be visually inspected by Technical Officials and no bike will be accepted unless it passes inspection.

Security guards are on duty Saturday afternoon until transition opens on Sunday morning at 5:00am. If your bike is not checked in during this time you will not be able to participate. Technical Officials will be checking for such things as: handlebar plugs, tyres in reasonable condition, stripped cable, at least one water bottle cage.

All competitors are to enter The Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney via the Main Entrance gate at Art Gallery Road. The Queen Elizabeth II Gate located beside the Sydney Opera House precinct will remain locked on Sunday 15th April until 7.00am for security and safety purposes.
