In order to ensure bike security every participant arriving to race site will be stopped as they are initially entering transition and they will receive two (2) bracelets. The first bracelet will be placed on the participant’s wrist and the second bracelet will be put on the participant’s bike. The two bracelets have matching numbers and in order to leave transition after the race is complete the participant must have both bracelets with the same matching number. You will be asked to show your bracelet on your wrist every time you enter transition.
Water Quality is Good. We are the only race series to have a Water Quality Guarantee. The Water Quality Guarantee Page has all the details.

Important Information regarding the La Salle Causeway Bridge
The bike course for crosses the metal La Salle Causeway bridge about a kilometre into the bike course.
During the race, the bridge will be restricted to one lane for motor vehicles (north lane) and one lane for cyclists (south lane).
We recommend all athletes slow down when crossing the bridge. Do not change gears, peddle or brake as doing any of these may reduce your traction on the metal grate surface. You are advised to coast across the entire bridge.
Be forewarned that lift bridge may go up this morning to allow passage of boat traffic.
In the event that the BRIDGE IS UP, please follow these instructions:
- Race to the point at which volunteers are recording race numbers. They will record the time at which you stop.
- Make sure the volunteer is able to see your bib number.
- When the bridge goes back down, volunteers will record your start time.
- The time stopped will be subtracted from your race time after you complete the bike course.
In the event of RAIN,
If the roadway and pavement are wet it will be MANDATORY that you STOP AND WALK your bike across the lift bridge or use the sidewalk, otherwise YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
Volunteers at the bridge have been instructed to tell you to walk across the bridge or the sidewalk. You are urged to use extreme caution when crossing the bridge. Under wet conditions continuing across the metal bridge at race speed is extremely dangerous and could result in a fall and serious injury.
Remember that you are sharing the roadway with vehicular traffic so be safe and ride carefully.
- There is a total of $1,800 in prize money. This is split evenly between the Long Course Triathlon, Short Course Triathlon and Duathlon for Male and Female overall winners (regardless of Elite or Age Group status). Amounts are:
- 1st Place: $150
