Pre Race Communication and Information
The Race Weekend Guide can be found HERE.
On Monday prior to TRi KiDS Burnaby a “RACE WEEKEND GUIDE” will be sent to all registered participants. The Guide covers final details for race weekend and includes parking suggestions, set-up times, course information, race kit pick up instructions….and much more. The Guide is sent to the email address provided at registration and it will also be posted on our home page under the News section. Please review this newsletter as it contains very important information.
We receive many emails and phone calls each day during the busy TRi KiDS race season. We do our very best to respond as quickly as possible, however we are often out of the office and away from our computers, particularly during race week. We do not answer calls or pick up voice mail starting on Friday of race weekend. We prioritize emails and respond to the questions pertaining to the race that coming weekend. We post all information related to the events on the website and keep it up to date. We highly recommend checking our FAQ page, the Rules for Safety page and the Race Checklist. We are confident your questions will be answered with these resources.

The swim takes place in the 6 lane, 25 meter indoor pool at C.G. Brown. Lifeguards will be on deck at all times.
There will be a maximum of 12 athletes per wave. Athletes will swim two per lane. The swim will start in the water (no diving or jumping) and will end in the shallow end for all athletes 6 years and older. One parent or guardian must accompany participants of the 3-5 age group in the water (swim takes place in shallow end only) and on foot for the bike and run. Athletes 3-5 years may use water wings, puddle jumpers or a life jacket (if desired). Life jackets will be supplied for all age groups. Flutter boards or flippers are not permitted. It is expected that athletes 6 years of age and older will not require assistance in the pool however special arrangements can be made.

Vehicle traffic is restricted to those needing to access the Wildlife Centre for emergency situations only. The older age groups will do multiple loops of the bike course.
