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 is now available, please note there is one for Standard Distance and one for Sprint Distance
Athlete Check-in is Friday 13 March (2:00pm - 7:00pm) and Saturday 14 March (11:30am - 4:00pm) at the Check-In Tent in the festival village.
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.
Teams Check-In - only one team member is required to check-in for their team. They’ll need to pass on the team kit to the other team members before race start. A team member must rack the team's bike during the racking times on the Saturday. The team member checking in must be registered in our system. We can change/add competitors details 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)

The Mooloolaba Triathlon will introduce 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
Official Wetsuit Ruling
A provisional water temperature will be posted on the information boards at transition and at Check-In on Saturday 14 March. Final wetsuit ruling will be announced Sunday morning prior to race start.
Bike Racking for Individuals and Teams is Saturday 14 March 11:00am - 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 patrol 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.
