Paratriathlete Services

The Penticton Organizing Committee will work in various ways to make sure the races are inclusive for all Para Triathletes, some measures that will be taken are:

  • Recruitment of Para handlers;
  • Dedicated area in transition;
  • Proper training of volunteers to assist athletes;
  • Adequate transportation will be provided;
  • Accessible rooms blocked off at hotels


All Aquabike athletes will have the choice of crossing the official finish line in the Grand Stands if they so choose. The Aquabike finish line will be on the bike approximately 200m from transition. Athletes will then enter their own transition 2 entrance and rack their bikes. Once you cross the finish line on the bike 200m from transition that is when your official finish time is taken. If athletes pass you after this time they will not finish ahead of you in the standings.

Option #1 Cross the Grand Stand finish line: At your leisure you can make your way to the Grand Stand finish line approximately 400m from transition, if you choose to cross the finish line you must:

  • Exit transition through the run out chute.
  • Be wearing athletic type shoes, no cycling shoes, no bare feet or no socks without shoes.
  • Helmet must be removed
  • Race bib must be worn front facing for announcer and photographer identification
  • Wearing your approved ITU NF uniform

Option #2 Do not cross the official finish line:

Exit transition through the auxiliary exit, not the run out chute.

Make your way to the athlete services area through the marked gate at the east end of Gyro park. Collect your medal, finisher garment and all other athlete services.
