What happens if I don’t or can’t finish the swim?


This is ok – we have the swim leg adequately guarded by Elwood Surf Life Saving Club, with a mixture of Boards, IRBs and coordinating staff on the shore with medical staff. If you feel like you need help at any stage during the swim, the procedure is to raise your arm in the air. We recommend rolling onto your back with your feet to the shore in order to avoid waves hitting your face.

Once back onshore, you are welcome to continue. You can do this by joining your wave as they head through the swim finish and onto the bike. You will receive times for your triathlon, however there will be a note of DNF next to your result to ensure you don’t place in the ranked results without completing the swim leg.

Prior to the swim commencing you can also choose to bypass the leg entirely, opting to begin your triathlon from the swim finish, performing just the bike and the run. This also will be presented in the results like the above.
