How a TEAM entry (relay) works:
You may participate as a TEAM for either the Sprint or Ultra distances (minimum age for Sprint is 16yrs and minimum age for Ultra is 18yrs).
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.
