Drumheller Wild Rose Women's Triathlon

June 2nd, 2024 - 8am

Drumheller Aquaplex

EVENT GUIDE - coming

Race Course

Swim (SPRINT 750m / SUPER SPRINT 300m)

The swim is a POOL SWIM. Athletes will line up according to their estimated swim time*. There will be a continuous flow of athletes in and out of the pool. As one athlete finishes their swim, another will be sent into that lane. 


*PLEASE ensure you are lined up with the correct time you expect to complete your swim. There will be volunteers to assist you. We will start with the slower times and move to the faster times. It may make you feel more relaxed to want to swim with swimmers you know will be slower than you but imagine how you would feel if that was you and a faster swimmer got into the lane. PLEASE LINE UP AT YOUR ACCURATE SWIM TIME. This makes it the most pleasant (and fun!) swim experience for everyone and easiest for the lap counters as well. 

T1 (Transition 1)

Upon completing the swim athletes will exit the designed door from the Aquaplex and run to the parking lot, into transition where your bike will be located. The run will be barefoot as you will have just finished the swim, but don't fret as we will sweep the pathway there so there are no rocks to step on (it is about 50m). You will put on your biking gear and head out onto the bike portion of the triathlon. You may not touch your bike until your bike helmet is on properly and the chin strap is done up.

As you leave transition you will be directed to WALK your bike until you reach the friendly volunteers at the MOUNT LINE. This is where you can get on your bike. For the safety of yourself and the volunteers you must wait until the mount line to get on your bike. 

Bike (SPRINT 20km / SUPER SPRINT 9km)

Once you are on your bike you will follow the bike course route. 

Sprint athletes will complete 1 x 19.5km loop, while Try-A-Tri athletes will complete 1 x 10km loop.

The bike course will be open to traffic so please be mindful and safe out there!

Here are a few safety rules/guidelines:

  • always stay to the far right of the road 

  • NEVER cross the yellow centre line of the road 

  • listen to the volunteers when making turns. WAIT until they say it is safe to turn. If at any point a volunteer or flag person tells you to STOP, please do so immediately! Volunteers and flag persons are there for your safety. They must balance doing what is right for traffic and racers. THEY MAKE THE CALLS. Failure to listen to then will result in IMMEDIATE disqualification. 

  • stay 10m behind the riders ahead of you (if you come closer you are drafting which is not allowed). If you need to pass simply say, "on your left" and ride past them. Please give them enough space when you pull back in (ie. don't cut them off). 

There will NOT be an aid station on the bike course for the Try-A-Tri distance. All participants MUST have a means to carry water with them. Water will be available at the turn around for the Sprint distance athletes. The aid station is self-serve, so athletes must stop and fill their bottle themselves from the jug should they need additional water for lap 2.

T2 (Transition 2)

Upon completing the bike athletes will head back to the transition area. First you will come upon the friendly volunteers at the DISMOUNT LINE. You will get off your bike just before the designed line and walk your bike back to spot on the bike rack you originally had. Once your bike is racked, you can then remove your helmet and change any clothes or shoes you need to before you head out onto the run. 

Turn your race number belt around so your number is on your FRONT.

Run (SPRINT 5km / SUPER SPRINT 2.5km)

Relax! You are on the run route. You can run or walk, run/walk but please no crawling (that is an actual rule! hahaha)

Sprint athletes will complete 5km, while Try-A-Tri athletes will complete 2.5km.

Please stay to the right of the road the entire route and cheer other athletes on!

Please note, spectators are not permitted to run with you or be on course. We know some of your your little ones are excited to see you and want to run with you however, for insurance purposes they cannot (but they can make cool signs and stand along the route!)  

There will be an aid station (with water and electrolytes) at the turnaround for the Sprint Distance.

As you near the finish line, finish strong and ensure your race number is on your front so the race announcer can call out your name. You are a triathlete!
