COVID-19 Safety Procedures


These procedures are developed to ensure the safe running of Cairns Crocs Triathlon Club events, in a COVID-19 environment. They are to ensure the safest environment is created for Athletes, Volunteers, Officials, Spectators and Members of the General Public.



COVID-19 is highly transmissible from person-to-person and readily spreads to close contacts of infected

individuals. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth

which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and

surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces

(fomites), then touching their eyes, nose, or mouth. People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in

droplets from a person with COVID-19. The virus can persist in the air for up to three hours and on a

variety of surfaces for up to 72 hours.


Pre-emptive low-cost interventions such as enhanced hygiene and social distancing measures reduce

numbers of cases through several mechanisms. Social distancing decreases the risk of transmission by

reducing incidence of contact while enhanced hygiene reduces disease transmission, if a contact occurs.

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 unauthorized 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.
