Greetings from the Pearl of the Indian Ocean,
It is almost the race week! You have done the hard work and it is time for you to let your body absorb that hard work with a well-planned tapering. I am sure you are excited about your race as much as we are in welcoming you to Colombo. We are committed to giving you an experience that you will long remember.
This update includes some important information on some changes and additional information. I kindly urge you to read them carefully and ensure that you are familiar with them.
We have over 60 teams participating at the event and we felt it is important that we issue some guidelines on team relay since majority are doing the race for the first time. Please go to this link and ensure you download the manual. Please read it and ask any questions you have.
Swim entry/ Run exit has been shifted to North West corner of the transition from South West. Please see that attached transition map and kindly ensure you are familiar with revised layout and the athlete flow through the transition.
We will be holding four (4) additional athlete briefing including one in Sinhala (native Sri Lankan language) for the benefit of the local athletes on Thursday and Friday. Previously we planned only two (2) briefings on Saturday.
Please note the venue map for TriClub village. I kindly urge you to bring your triclub banners and set up the area for your supporters. We will have enough of tents for your supporters and any teams with excess of 20 members will be allocated a dedicated tent. So let’s celebrate our international triathlon community in style.
Please note that during the race week the local authorities will be carrying out some road repairs in preparation for the race, which to be completed by Friday 23rd February. Therefore, please use extra caution when riding on local roads.
