Cancellations

Should inclement weather or circumstances beyond our control prevent the holding of the event according to the planned program with all of its segments (Swim, Bike, Run), the organisation will amend the event according to the judges of the Triathlon federation of Cyprus.

Drafting

Athletes following the non-drafting rules must keep at least 3 bike-lengths apart of clear space between the cyclist in front of you and you. If you move into the drafting – zone, you must pass within 15 seconds. Triathletes must keep to the left hand side of the lane unless they are about to pass. Blocking an athlete wishing to pass another athlete and interfering with this action is prohibited. If you are overtaken and passed (fellow athlete’s wheel passes yours), you must immediately exit the draft zone from the rear, fall back 3 bike lengths, before attempting to pass again.

The rules governing the Relay category are the universal rules governing, swimming, cycling and running. The only specific rules for relay teams are:

Each relay consists of a swimmer, cyclist and runner.

Each team member will, in turn carry the timing chip worn on the ankle – this will be passed from each member of the team on completion of their section.

The relay teams will have a specific area of the transition separate from individual participants.

Restricted areas will be controlled by guards/marshals of the organisation. Medical services for the organisation along the route, shall be authorised to remove any participant for medical reasons. Any emergency vehicle that needs to use the cycling route will indicate their presence through light and sound signals.
