Our aim is not to weigh you down with countless rules and regulations, however there are a few that we need to highlight to ensure both your safety and the safety of other participants. Breaching any of these rules could result in disqualification.

The event will be following Triathlon Australia Rules. Please familiarize yourself with these rules by visiting the following site. 

Some major Guidelines and Rules are:

Transition Area

  • Only participants in the Duathlon can enter the transition area.
  • Participants must have their helmet on and strap done up on entering the transition to allow marshal to check for safety.
  • Competitors are ultimately responsible for their gear. Please give unwanted gear to family or friends or store it in the allocated Bag storage area provided.
  • Participants must rack their bikes and place their equipment at the allocated position in the transition.
  • Participants are not allowed to tie anything to their bike rack to make it easier to find their bike.
  • Participants must put on and fasten their helmets before they remove their bikes from the bike rack.
  • Participants must walk/run their bike in the transition area until they cross the road and pass the mount bike sign.
  • On return from the bike participants must dismount their bike at the dismount sign and walk/run their bike to their bike rack


  • Runners must obey the instructions of all event staff and course marshals at all times.
  • Runners must stay on the designated course (tracks) at all times, no cutting corners!

  • PASSING: Front riders must yield to overtaking riders. Riders should voice the command ”passing on right" when overtaking another. 
    • It is the responsibility of the faster rider to overtake safely. Slower riders must yield to the passing rider on the first command. In the event two riders are racing for position, the leading rider does not have to yield his position to the challenging rider. However, a rider may not bodily interfere with or impede another rider's progress.  


  • The relay event will follow all the rules above with the addition of some specific rule to the event.
