Registration, Transition, Start and Finish: Individual and Relay
The event will all take place around the University of Ghana, Legon, Pool. Only athletes are allowed in the
transition area and will be allowed to setup from 6am-6:45am. There will be a Race briefing at 6:30am.
Registration will open from 6am to 6:45am. Transition will open from 6am-7am.
In your registration pack, you will receive a swim cap, race number with safety pins to secure to your clothes
and your start time. You will need to return your swim cap and your race number at the end of the race to
receive your finishers t-shirt.
Once registered, please prepare yourself to race. Within the transition area we expect you to have your bike and run gear (including your own bike and helmet) but not your swim gear (that should be on you and ready for the start).
The race begins by the pool. Participants exit along the mats to the transition area. Here, you need to get on
your bike, complete the bike course, head back to transition and change into your run gear. After your second
visit to transition, time to complete the run! At the end, race down the finish line.
For relay participants, there will be a section within transition that team members will have to stand in to
crossover, once a swimmer comes out of the pool and into transition, tap your cyclist so they can start their
section, once a cyclist comes back into transition, tap your runner and set them off on their way.
Please remember that this is a friendly event, open to individuals of all abilities so for the more serious amongst you, play nice!
