Athlete check-in is on Friday 30 October (10:00am - 7:00pm) & Saturday 31 October (10:00am - 4:00pm) in the Check-In Tent at Festival Village, Noosa Woods.
We need to see your Photo ID (Driver's Licence, Passport etc) to check you in and give you your race kit. While we love mates who look out for mates unfortunately you can’t check in on behalf of someone else. It’s illegal for someone else to compete under your name or for you to compete under someone else's name. This is for the safety of yourself and all competitors and it’s critical we know who is on the course at all times. Please make sure the right team members / individuals are listed on your entry - this can be changed at the Help Desk at Check-In.
In your race kit you will be issued:
- Race Bib Number (to be worn the run)
- Bike Seat Post Number Sticker
- Helmet Number Sticker
- Number tattoo (individual athletes and team runner only)
- Category Tattoo (individual athletes only)
- ID Wristband (Teams will receive 3 wristbands, 1 for each team member)
- Timing Chip
- Coloured swim cap
- Event Pack - containing ASICS event gear & sponsor giveaways
Please secure your ID wristband prior to leaving the check-in area on Friday or Saturday. This band will identify you as an official race competitor and must be worn at all times. The wristband is your means of access into transition over the weekend.
Clydesdale & Athena Weigh In
All Clydesdales and Athenas will be required to Check in at the Help Desk to complete their weigh in. If you do not meet the eligibility, you will be moved to your Age Group.
Athlete Info Guide
Grab a cuppa and read through the Athlete Information Guide (AIG) from front to back as it will cover everything you need to know pre-event, race day and post event so that all you have to worry about is having more fun than your mates on race day.
The 2020 AIG will be available 3 weeks prior to the event.
You can check out the 2019 AIG as a reference in the meantime.
Swim starts are released about 2 weeks out from the event. All competitors will receive their swim cap in their race kit (which you collect at Athlete Check-In). Please check that your swim cap colour reflects the colour of your rolling category start group.
The Noosa Triathlon will once again feature a Rolling Category Wave Start. Athletes will seed themselves within their respective category or age group, based on their projected swim times.
Within each rolling category start there will be 4 Start Zones. You can avoid being overtaken by stronger swimmers by seeding yourself with athletes of a similar skill and ability level.
The four Start Zones are:
Zone 1 - Under 28 minutes
Zone 2 - Between 28 - 31 minutes
Zone 3 - Between 31 - 35 minutes
Zone 4 - Over 35 minutes
Bike Racking for Individuals and Teams is Saturday 31 October (10.00am - 4:30pm).
To enter transition your bike must display your seat post sticker, and you must wear your corresponding ID wristband found in your Race Kit (which you collect at Check-In).
Your bike will be visually inspected by Triathlon Australia officials. This is not a guarantee of safety. Competitors are responsible for their bikes being in safe working order. You should ensure your bike, as well as your helmet, is in safe working order before presenting to transition.
Security will be on duty Saturday night and Sunday morning. It’s a good idea to take a photo of where you’re bike is racked in transition or add a colour ribbon to your bike. The end of the racks will be numbered.
The free Noosa Triathlon Transition tours provide you with detailed information on the flow of transition. This will help you understand what you need to do on race day and how to easily get around transition and back out onto the course. A useful tool to help you achieve your best on race day and set you up for the ultimate finish experience.
Tours operate on Saturday 31 October at 11am and 2pm, and are limited to 60 spots. Once they are filled additional clinics will be opened up for registration.
It is strongly advised that you take out personal medical insurance for the duration of your stay, especially for international competitors. Under the Australian Health Act, non-Australians are not covered financially for personal injury. If you do have an accident you must pay for your own medical expenses. Therefore it is essential for you to obtain adequate personal medical insurance.
Triathlon Australia provides a One Day Race Membership and Annual Membership that provides some coverage for personal accident insurance. You will need to review their policy for details it can be found at www.triathlon.org.au/Membership/Insurance
