There will be 2 semi-finals in the morning, with an A and B Final in the afternoon. All teams will have 2 races.
Each athlete will complete a full super sprint triathlon of 300m swim, 7km cycle and 1500m 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.
