Parents Please Note:
For the safety and smooth running of the Junior Aquathlon there is to be NO parental interaction with athletes beyond the racing line at any stage (swim, transition or on the run course). Please adhere to the requests of the race marshals at all times during the race.
It may be worth while practising transition with your child prior to race day. Marshals will be able to help competitors if necessary in transition, but no parental assistance will be allowed.
The Finish Zone is an athlete ONLY area, please do not enter the athlete only area looking for your young athletes as this will cause congestion on the day. This area will be strictly marshalled. Please arrange to meet your child at the entrance to the Finish Zone.
