Mixed Relay Invitational
Saturday 23 March - Sunday 24 March 2019
Super Sports Centre, Runaway Bay
Triathlon Mixed Relay Invitational at Runaway Bay on the weekend of March 23 and 24.
It is an initiative by Triathlon Australia to give Australian athletes an opportunity to compete in a Mixed Relay only competition.
Sixteen teams, 10 from Australia and six international teams, including USA, Canada, Hong Kong and Wales competed in the inaugural event.
The two-day event at the Runaway Bay Sports Centre is being supported by the Gold Coast City Council with a podium prize purse of $3,500.00 on offer.
Two qualification rounds will be held on Saturday with the first two teams across the line and two next best times from each to go through to Sunday’s final. The remaining teams will contest a repechage on Sunday morning where an additional two teams go through to the A final and remaining teams contest the B final Sunday afternoon (2018).
Each athlete will complete a full super sprint triathlon of 300m swim, 8km cycle and 1600m run before tagging their teammate to begin the next leg.
Two females and two males will make up a single team. The women will commence the first leg before tagging onto the first male. The second female will follow before the second male brings it home.
