The organisers of the Compressport Mount Festival of Multisport wish to ensure that the race is fair to all competitors. The event is a officially Triathlon New Zealand Sanctioned Event.

Tri NZ will have trained technical officials at the event who will monitor the rules as outlined here.

In this event, drafting is illegal and thus considered to be cheating. If the athlete receives a third penalty, they will be disqualified.

In this event, penalties will be served as a ‘Stand Down’ in the Penalty Compounds on course. Any athlete given a penalty is required to stand down at the next penalty box. Any athlete who does not stand down at the next official penalty box will be disqualified.

Drafting rules are outlined in the Tri NZ rules

Please make sure you understand this rule –if you have any questions please contact the race office. It is your responsibility as an athlete to know the rules.

In the end the responsibility for a race without major drafting issues lies in your hands as triathletes to compete fairly, honestly and within the both the rules and moral values of our sport.
