Yorkeys Knob Duathlon @ Yorkeys Knob | Yorkeys Knob | Queensland | Australia

Are you a runner or cyclist interested in testing your abilities? Or have you recently started exercising regularly and want a challenge in beautiful Yorkeys Knob?

duathlon is great for those looking to move into multi-sport racing but may not be comfortable with an open water swim. There are plenty of options for you to race.

As always, we will be looking for those wonderful people, Volunteers, who make the event possible.

Let us know at volunteers@cairnscrocs.org.au if you can help out.

Look forward to seeing you all there.

Bike Check-in

 

Bike check-in is compulsory for all individuals and at least one team member. Please wear your helmet for the check-in. Immediately prior to bike check-in Triathlon Queensland (TQ) officials will carry out a visual inspection of your helmet. Your helmet therefore must be correctly fastened on your head when you present your bike for check-in. This visual inspection is not a certification of function or safety effectiveness.

 

TQ officials will visually inspect your bike and no bike will be accepted unless it passes the

inspection. The officials will be checking for: handlebar plugs, tyres in reasonable condition, stripped cables etc. The ends of the handlebars must be plugged – please ensure no bare metal. The bike must have two functional brakes.

 

Please note that the bike check-in is a safety precaution to monitor basic soundness of your bike and is essentially a visual check on obvious defects. It is not a certification of roadworthiness by TQ or that your bike meets any specific minimum criteria or a guarantee it will not break down during the race.

 

It is your sole responsibility to ensure the mechanical and safe operation of your bike prior

to and during the race.

 

Race Briefing

 

A short briefing will be held before each race. However, competitors should be familiar with

the course and the rules of Triathlon. Please check out our course maps on the homepage. The use of unauthorised equipment such as MP3 players, Oakley

Thumps, cameras, video cameras, iPods or other audio listening or communication

devices are an infringement and will cause a penalty by TQ official.
