Rockwood Triathlon Relays and Families of Steel Triathlon
Triathlon Relays - 08 September 2018 - 9.00am Race Start
Sorry but we have been forced to cancel this event due to lack of registrations.
Welcome to our 3rd Rockwood Relays an exciting new style of Team Triathlon over a short course in Rockwood Park, Saint John, ready made for fast and exciting racing. This is a fun style of racing and great for inter club competitions where Tri Clubs can compete against each other for bragging rights. As with all our events we want to be as inclusive as possible so even if this your first season of Triathlon you and 2 friends can still have a great experience over the 2 events.
A unique opportunity to race with your friends rather than against them.
This is a great format of racing for new and experienced Triathletes alike and our Race 1 format will be featured in the 2020 Olympic Triathlon race.
PLEASE NOTE - this is a team event so 3 people are required per team. Please just register as individuals and then e-mail me the names and your team name and I will create your Relay Team for race day.
NEW for 2018 - Families of Steel - race with your kids in our brand new family team event - see below for full details.
Triathlon Relays - Race day will comprise 2 separate events which are explained below:
Swim - 400m in Fisher Lakes
Bike Route - 3 out and back loops on a closed course in Rockwood Park for a total bike distance of 8.1k.re for Bike course
Run - 1k out and back covered twice for a total of 2k. click here for Run course
Race 1 - 9.00am start
Teams of 3 people will compete over a course of 400m swim, 8k bike and 2k run. Each person will complete their swim, bike and run before handing off to their next team member until all 3 people have completed the course. Fastest team wins. Race is consecutive and is timed from when the first team member starts swimming until the third team member finishes running. This is a non-drafting event.
Race 2 - 11.00am start or on completion of Race 1 with a short recovery break
In your team of 3, all 3 people will swim together as a threesome and then ride together on the bike course and then complete the race by running together as a team. Your time finishes when your last team member crosses the finish line. In order to reduce the number of bikes on the course at any one time we will operate a staggered start. This is a drafting event but only in your respective teams.
Important Race Info:
Due to the nature of this route we strongly recommend Road bikes rather than Tri or TT bikes.
Teams can be same sex or mixed sex. Please just register as individuals and then e-mail me the names and your team name and I will create your Relay Team for race day.
Pricing covers both races and we cannot split pricing down to cover 1 event only.
Price is $49.00 per person to cover both events and all 3 people must complete both races. No discount for just completing 1 race.
Familes of Steel Triathlon - start time to be confirmed
The idea for a Families of Steel Triathlon came from a pretty astute kid who wanted to know why they couldn’t race in a Triathlon with their triathlete parents. Never one to shy away from a challenge we put our thinking caps on and came up with FamilyAthon, a multi-generational triathlon over the Super Sprint triathlon course using our existing Relay Tri course in Rockwood Park.
Teams will consist of 3 members, 2 kids & 1 adult or 2 adults & 1 kid and must be a combination of grandparent, parent, son or daughter to maintain the family theme. Aunts and Uncles will also be allowed.
This will be a fun, non-competitive race using our closed road course within Rockwood Park starting and finishing at Fisher Lakes parking lot.
Distances will be based on the age of the youngest child (if your team has 2 children) as of 31 Dec 2018
6-7 years – 50m – 1.5k – 500m run
8-9 years - 100m swim – 5k bike – 1k run
10-11 years – 200m swim – 5k bike – 2k run
12-15 years – 300m swim – 8k bike – 2k run
To emphasize the family aspect of the race teams must stay together for the entire race and cross the finish line together for a great photo opportunity.
In order to reduce costs event will not be chip timed
