RACE RULES AND REGULATIONS

The Great White North Triathlon follows all applicable ITU rules with some exceptions as follows:

DRAFTING

There will be no drafting at The Great White North Triathlon. The draft zone is 3 meters wide by 7 meters long. This rule is strictly enforced! We have experienced drafting marshals on the bike course. If you draft, you will be caught, and if you are caught, you will be penalized.

1st offense = 4 min in the P.T.
2nd offense = 4 min in the P.T.

WETSUITS

Allowed and highly recommended!   Due to the nature of our climate, the water temperature can vary between 74 and 58 degrees Fahrenheit, therefore, it is recommended that you wear a wetsuit!

Note: We do have volunteers to help strip your wetsuit at the swim/bike transition, so please make sure that you are wearing something under your wetsuit!

SPORTSMANSHIP

Any competitor behaving in an unsportsmanlike manner will be disqualified on the spot. Our volunteers are the main reason this race is so great!

Please treat them with the utmost respect at all times, including all activities before and after the event.
