- You can only exchange in the designated changeover area at the end of a lap.
- On the bike you must complete a minimum of 10 laps between changeovers.
The 5km swim consists of four laps of 1,250m giving the opportunity for up to four team members to all take part in a swim. The bike will be 52 laps, each of 3.8km, giving the opportunity for up to five stints of 10 or more laps. The 50km run will be 10 laps, giving the opportunity for up to 10 individual stints from as little as 5km each.
