As you may know BFIT is planning the Ray Bayley Mixed Relay Challenge for March 29th, 2020.
Details are as follows
Afternoon event at the Aquatic Centre, race day team check in at 3:30, event to start at 4:30 pm.
Registration will be via google form, entrants can submit an entire team, partial teams or individuals. The google form can be found at https://forms.gle/7fKBips7TSfTcPoe6.
Entrance fee is $40 per team.
If you want to enter a partial team that is ok, after all athletes have registered we will do a random draw to fill out incomplete teams. Teams can be any combination of children or adults as long as the 2 female, 2 male ratio is maintained.
ITU format - 4 person teams, 2 females + 2 males, order is female, male, female, male.
each competitor will do swim, bike, run and tag their teammate who will proceed to do swim, bike, run and so forth until the last person crosses the finish line.
Distances for 10 and under will be 25m swim, 700m bike (medium loop), 500m run (small loop), 11 and over 50m swim, 1400m bike (two medium loops), 700m run (medium loop).
Objective is to honour Ray Bayley, introduce the ITU format, expose triathlon to beginners and experienced athletes and have fun.
As a precaution, we may have to postpone/cancel the event but we will let you know in due course.
We look forward to seeing you there!
