LOCATION:

The Hills Tri Series is held at the Sydney International Regatta Centre at Penrith with entry through gate ‘A’. Registration and transition are located on the grassed area just over the bridge to the island on which the grand stand is located. A map of the event course will be available at the Registration Tent.

 

ACCESS and PARKING:
Upon entering the gates of the Regatta Centre, you must abide by the speed limit imposed by the Regatta Centre management. The Regatta Centre has ample parking on the island opposite the registration and transition area. It is important that you park only in marked parking areas and follow the direction of all Regatta Centre Rangers. If the car park on the island is full when you arrive, overflow parking is available on the Southern side of the competition lake.

 

COURSE INFORMATION:
Officials will be on hand at Registration to answer any specific questions you may have concerning the course, the rules and to assist you generally. Do not hesitate to raise any query no matter how trivial it may seem.

You are reminded of your acceptance of entry conditions, waiver release and indemnification. Please note this is a legal part of entering the race and affects your rights. You have attested your physical condition to participate in this event. If you have developed a medical condition since you registered to enter, then this should be brought to attention of the Race Director and, where deemed appropriate by the Race Director, a medical certificate produced.

This will take place at the transition area. At Registration, you may be required to produce some form of I.D. (drivers licence, T.A. licence). Registration must be completed by the time specified. Only competitors will be permitted to enter the transition area.

 

TIMING:
The Hills Tri Series will use an electronic timing system, involving of an electronic chip attached to an ankle band. Your responsibilities as a competitor include:

  • When you register, you will be issued with your Timing Band
  • You must wear the Timing Band at all times while racing. The timing band with the chip must be attached to your left ankle before you check into transition. You must leave it on until you finish the entire race. It is a means of recording your finish times across the special timing points located at the end of each leg of the race
  • At the completion of the race you will be required to remove the timing band and hand it to Officials prior to leaving the finish compound area
  • As you have acknowledged on your entry contract, the timing chip and band is on loan and you are committed to returning the band intact with the chip to the Hills Triathlon Club, or pay a $75.00 fee. This is the cost of replcing the chip.
  • It is imperative that you return the timing band to the race dropout clerk at the finish should you withdraw from the race at any time. It is essential for us to know where you are on the course at all times for your safety and our ability to post accurate official results post-race
  • Note the Race Director will monitor and collect timing bands from competitors who may be transported from the course direct to the Medical Recovery Area at the Finish Compound.

Qualified First Aid Personnel will be on duty at transition. Please ask for medical help if you have the slightest hint you may need it. Any aid given by race medical personnel on the course is permissible and will not lead to disqualification. If, however, you have any other outside assistance you will be disqualified. You will be withdrawn from the race only if you require transportation, IV fluids, or if medical personnel consider your continued participation presents a danger to the health or welfare of you or others.
