This is left entirely at the discretion of the Senior Official on the day.
  2. For Relay teams in the Standard race, if the swimmer fails to make the cut-off, the Senior Official will allow the team to continue from the cut off time (08.00), i.e. The Bike leg will start at 08.00. The same rule will apply for the Bike to Run.
  3. The cut off times are the time that competitors are expected to be into transition.
  4. Please note that cyclists and runners who have not completed the course before the allocated cut off may find no marshals at junctions, and will have to safely make their own way back to Transition. The Senior Official will make all final decisions on the day.

Junior

Operating under the race permit of the British Triathlon Federation, our Junior Triathlon provides for a safe, fun and engaging way for juniors to get involved and give it a go.

Entrants will swim the relevant distance for their age category in sea or the outdoor marine lake (near Les Jardin De La Mer). On exit of the lake entrants will run 200m along the beach and up the steps (which will be marshalled) into the main Jersey Triathlon transition area.

On exiting transition with bike participants will mount opposite La Frigate before riding onto the closed roads of Victoria Avenue in order to complete their specific bike distance before returning to transition.

On exiting transition, participants will join the scenic waterfront (traffic free) course to complete their relevant run distance. The finish will be through the main finish gantry that also displays the race clock.

All entrants will receive timings chips for the event, a finisher medal and a souvenir t-shirt.
