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.
Please note there is one for each event - Standard Distance and Sprint Triathlon.
The 2024 Athlete List is now available on our app.
Please note, the Athlete list was last updated on the 4th of February 2024 and will only be updated again at close of Check-In prior to Race Day.
Please review the Athlete list on our app, which provides a breakdown of athletes entered into each category as well as their Bib Number and Category.
We ask that all participants please take the time to review this carefully before race weekend and ensure details are correct.
*Race Age is as of 31.12.2023, as per the AusTriathlon Race Competition Rules.
Hydration is an essential part to ensure your race day is a success. PURE Electrolyte Hydration will be on course at all aid stations and contains the electrolytes sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium. It is formulated to replace electrolytes, provide fuel (5% carbohydrates) and hydrate while avoiding stomach upset.
Athlete Check-in is Friday 8 March and Saturday 9 March, please refer to the Event Schedule for times.
We will be operating Athlete Check-In and bike racking by appointment only.
Check-In and Bike racking times are selected when entering the event. To update or check your selected time, please log into your MyEvents account or check your confirmation email.
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 attend Check-In, but it is recommended that all attend if possible. 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 (Standard Distance athletes only)
- ID Wristband (Teams will receive 3 wristbands, 1 for each team member)
- Timing Chip
- Coloured swim cap
The Mooloolaba Triathlon will once again have a Rolling Category Start for all distances. 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
The four Start Zones are:
Zone 1 - Under 13 minutes
Zone 2 - Between 13 - 17 minutes
Zone 3 - Between 17 - 21 minutes
Zone 4 - Over 21 minutes
A provisional water temperature will be posted at Event Information on Friday for Sprint Triathlon and Saturday for Standard. The final wetsuit ruling will be announced race morning prior to the race start.

Please refer to the Event Schedule for Bike Racking Times.
Sprint Triathlon - Must rack bikes on Friday
Standard Distance and Relay Teams - Must rack bikes on Saturday
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 AusTriathlon 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 Friday night, 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 colorful ribbon to your bike. The end of the racks will be numbered.
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.
AusTriathlon 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
Event is sanctioned by QLD Triathlon . AusTriathlon Race Rules apply. All disqualifications will be posted at the Event Information near expo following the race. All enquiries about disqualifications must be made within an hour after the event and can only be discussed with a QLD Triathlon official.
