|How a TEAM entry (relay) works:||
You may participate as a TEAM for the Sprint distances (minimum age for Sprint is 16yrs).
A team consists of 2 or 3 members. Each team member competes in one discipline i.e. 1st team member = Swim, 2nd team member = Cycle, 3rd team member = Run. The Team event works like a relay. The team gets given a timing chip which will act like a batten and will get passed onto each team member in the transition area. Along with the timing chip, the Team also get 2 x race numbers which are worn by the cyclist and by the runner. The swimmer will get an official swim cap.
|RACE BRIEFING||7:05am for all competitors (Compulsory)|
|WET SUITS||A decision on wetsuits will be taken an hour before the start of the Sprint.

|DRAFTING||NO Drafting will be allowed in the Sprint event. Strict TSA rules apply.|
Timing Chips will be given out at registration.

|SWIM CAPS||Competitors will be given OFFICIAL RACE TYR swimming caps at registration|
The Transition Area will open at 5:45am by the TSA Officials. Your bike, helmet and swim cap will be checked when you enter the transition area. You will not be allowed to exit the transition Area with your bike until after the last competitor has finished your bike leg. The Transition Area will close and everyone must exit at 7:00am for race briefing

The five S’s of sports training are: stamina, speed, strength, skill, and spirit; but the greatest of these is spirit.
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.
When you’ve got something to prove, there’s nothing greater than a challenge.
Do you know what my favorite part of the game is? The opportunity to play.
I hated every minute of training, but I said, don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.
