Are there cut off times in the race?

RMTri does have specific cutoff times for the events. The Cut off times are very reasonable for all athletes will be able to complete each stage of the race before they are enforced. We do reserve the right to pull an athlete off the course if at any time we feel the course has become unsafe or that we cannot safely support them. RMTri will make every effort to support our athletes to successfully complete the race.

When will I be able to see my splits and final results?

Complete splits and final results will be available at the park on race day, within minutes of finishing your results of hours of the last finisher. They will be posted on website as well as this website and Triathlon Manitoba by Monday afternoon following the race.

Do you offer relays?

Yes, RMTri offers both two and three person relays in the Triathlon/Duathlon events. Make sure you check the correct ”Triathlon/Duathlon relay” box at signup

What is the water temperature for the swim?

The most asked question! As Clear Lake is a spring fed lake the temperature can vary from year to year. Over the last ten years the water temperature has averaged 19C. Wetsuits are strongly recommended for 2022 (Will be determined by Triathlon Manitoba Race Officials)

If I get tired and in trouble in the swim can I hang onto a buoy or kayak?

Yes, as long as you do not make any forward progress. If you do move forward you will be disqualified.

Do I need my security band to get into the transition zone race morning?

Yes, if you do not have your band you will have to go back and get it before you are allowed into transition. (In race kits)

How can I get my registration package?

Registration packages are given out at the Friday Check-in between 4:00 and 8pm. Each athlete must be present to pick up there own package. All members of a relay team must pick up their own package. Due to varying registration numbers, a complete registration package is not guaranteed for every racer.

Are the results posted before the full race is finished?

Yes, preliminary results are posted before all athletes are in as time permits. They are posted on the information board by the kiosk in the transition area. It is important to know that these results are preliminary and not official. Once the official results are complied they will be posted and their official status duly noted.

Where can I, as well as my family and friends, park race morning?

The Park will not be allowing parking along Ta-Wa-Pit and Wasagaming Drive due to safety concerns. Please refer to the Parking Map, for a guide to the many free parking lots all within short walking distance to the Transition Zone.
