Weather Contingency Plan

Our top priority is your safety, so in the event of inclement weather, some changes may be necessary. Fear not! We’ve got a plan in place to keep the competition going.

If we experience inclement weather, we’ll delay the start of the full event up to an hour. However, if we determine that the swimming conditions are unsafe, we’ll switch things up to a duathlon with a 40Km bike and 10K run for the main event. Sprint distance also gets a change to a duathlon, with a 20Km bike and 5K run.

Don’t forget, the duathlon will use the same wave starts as the triathlon to keep things rolling smoothly. Lastly, in the unlikely event that the weather doesn’t allow for cycling, all participants will switch gears to a 5K run instead.
