ONLINE REGISTRATION: CLICK HERE

Zondagmiddag 27 augustus 2017. Melden, bodymarken en racenummer ophalen vanaf 15.00u. Race start 16:30u. Start/Finish, prijsuitreiking met BBQ bij Hemmingway. De BBQ is ook toegankelijk voor deelnemers die geen TEC lid zijn en TEC leden die niet hebben meegedaan.

Deelname Aquathlon Individueel Naf 15. Duo Relay Naf 25. Deelname vanaf 14 jaar of wanneer je dit jaar nog 14 wordt (geboren in 2002). Prijs BBQ (buffet) is Naf 35 pp en kinderen t/m 12 jaar Naf 20 pp.

De start en finish zijn op dezelfde plek als in 2016, aan de kant van Lions Dive bij Hemingway en bij het Beach Volleybal veldje. Het zwemparcours gaat rechtsaf tot aan het houten vlot en daar linksom heen (vlot aan je linkerhand  houden). Het loopparcours loopt vanuit Lions Dive langs Eric’s ATV Buggy station, daar rechts de knoek in en gaat rechtuit over de trial langs het water, voorbij het dammetje tot aan Chocogo en dezelfde weg terug. Dit loopparcours is warm en uitdagend dus zorg dat je goed getraind bent en voldoende water drinkt (zelf drinken meenemen bij de wissel van zwemmen naar lopen, zelf meenemen tijdens het lopen en je krijgt water bij het keerpunt op het loopparcours).

Iedereen (dus dames en heren individueel, en alle relay teams) zwemt en loopt dezelfde afstand: 650m zwemmen, 5km lopen en 650m zwemmen. Duo Relay Teams bestaan uit 2 personen; één zwemmer (die zwemt dus 2 keer) en één hardloper.

Voor de routes zie de kaarten hieronder.

KEEP RIGHT all the time! Keep right at SWIM-1, watch other swimmers, watch people standing on the raft turning point and watch snorkeling tourists. Keep right at the RUN and keep right at SWIM-2. Watch ahead frequently. Give free way to everybody coming from the opposite direction. It is your OBLIGATION to keep right and it is your OBLIGATION to avoid any sort of collision during the swim as well as during the run.

At the turning point of the RUN it is YOUR responsibility that the official can see your race number, which is written on your arms and legs. You may also call your number to be sure you are checked. Also at the SWIM raft turning point there will be officials to check your numbers.

At the entrance of the swim stretch please be aware of the orange barrier that lies in the water. Be sure not to injure yourself crossing the barrier. Be careful!

At the finish please make sure to show your race number to the officials.
