When do race entries close?

  • Entries will close for TriAthy 2019:
    • at midnight on Thursday 23rd May 2019 or
    • earlier if the relevant race fills to capacity before this date;
  • Typically each race will sell out before the official closing date, so we would advise entrants to enter well in advance;
  • Please don't be offended if requests to enter after this time can not be fulfilled.

Can I request to be in a particular wave or have my own start time?

  • The only race with a wave start is the Double Olympic. For this race, waves will fill on a self-arranging basis (ie. first 150 in Wave 1, followed by the next 150 in the next wave approx 10 mins apart).
  • All other races will take a "Rolling Start" format where instead of set wave times, there will be a continuous flow to the race starts. In this format triathletes will start their clock when they cross the timing mat at the swim start and clock their time when they cross the finish-line.

How is my Age Category determined?

  • In accordance with the ITU rules, your age is deemed to be your age as at 31 December 2019.
  • Here’s an example of what this means:
    • Andrea turns 40 on 31 July 2019.
    • TriAthy is in on 1 June 2019, a few weeks before her birthday.
    • Even though Andrea will be 39 when she races at Athy, the ITU rules state that she must race in the 40-44 Age Category
    • Why? - Because her age will be 40 on 31 December 2019.
  • Your category will be automatically generated when you enter based on your date of birth.
