RACE RULES AND REGULATIONS
The Great White North Triathlon follows all applicable ITU rules with some exceptions as follows:
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 with a big stick. Don’t even think of littering – save your trash for aid stations!
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.
