Classic : To ensure the smooth organization of the event, we decided on two time limits (cut-off times), being 5pm for the last bike lap (or 2 hours30 to swim and ride 12 km) and 6pm for the bike/run transition.

As with any such event, access to the changing park is reserved only for athletes wearing a bracelet, which will be handed out with the race bibs.

To retrieve their equipment, participants will have to show their bracelets and their bibs matching the number on their handlebars.
