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.

DRAFTING NO Drafting will be allowed in the Sprint event. Strict TSA rules apply.
