    Pre Race Meeting

    The pre race meeting will be held from 5-6 pm on Saturday June 1st at Oliver Parks and Recreation Arena at the same site as package pick up.

    Bike Check-in

    Athletes must check their bikes in on Saturday. Bikes can be checked into transition between 12-5 or 6-7 on Saturday. Please respect the direction of the volunteers. Family Members will not be allowed into transition with you when checking in your bike.

    Please make sure that you pick up your athlete package at registration before going to transition to check your bike to your rack. If athletes show up at transition to rack their bikes and do not have an athlete band on & without a matching bike frame number, they will not be allowed in transition.

    There is no mandatory bike inspection before the race.

    Post Race Lunch and Awards

    The post race lunch and awards will take place at Oliver Parks & Recreation Arena where you picked up your package.  Lunch will begin just after 12.  Once again, family and friends are invited to have lunch with you.  Lunch will be available by donation for family and friends while athletes show their race band at lunch.  We would like to thank the members of the Gathering Place for helping us with the athlete lunch again this year.

    Awards are scheduled for 4:00 - 4:30.


    Course Cut-Off Times

    Due to restrictions of municipal permits, race insurance and volunteer staffing, all participants must remain on pace to complete Persona Oliver Half Iron Triathlon in 8.5 hours.   The swim cut-off is 1:10 from the start of the final swim wave.  The bike cut-off is at 1pm.  Riders arriving into transition after 1pm will not be allowed to continue.

    Transition Area

    The transition area is around the corner from Rotary Beach on the grass field at Tucelnuit Elementary School.  Transition will be open on race day from 5:30am and will close at 6:45am to ensure all of the athletes are down at the swim start. Only athletes who are wearing their wristband and are body marked will be allowed access. Any bike not properly displaying the bike frame number will be removed from the transition area during the swim. You will not be allowed access to the transition area to reclaim your bicycle and gear until after the last athlete has started the run.  

    Family & friends are NOT allowed in transition

    Swim 2km - One Loop

    The bike start cut-off time is 1:15 hour after the final wave start. All participants that are still in the water after 1:15 has passed, will be pulled from the course and not allowed to continue.

    Bike 93 km

    Due to concerns from entrants, we will extend the bike course cutoff time to 5:15 after the final wave start (1:00pm).  Athletes arriving at transition after 1:00pm will not have made the bike cutoff and will not be allowed to continue.

    You will be stopped due to cutoff times if:

    • Race staff deems you in no condition to continue,
    • You are far behind the next to last athlete,

    Note: There are two police-controlled/flagger intersections in Oliver on the bike course. Congestion is anticipated and it is imperative that the race does everything possible to harmonize with the local community.

    We will be opening up these intersections to normal traffic flow in advance of a rider pushing the edge of the cutoff time. This means you may find yourself having to obey traffic laws at the busy intersections of 79th street and 93rd street (opening at 1:15pm).  A race vehicle will proceed at cutoff time pace to inform you of your position and open the intersections.

    Run 21.1 km

    There will be a run course cut-off time at the run turnaround (10.5Km) at 6:45(2:45pm) after the final wave start. No one will be allowed to proceed with the second loop of the run after the cut off. The official race finish is 8:30 after the final wave start.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    While completing the event is of paramount importance to all athletes, you must heed this rule out of concern for your fellow competitors, race staff, public servants and members of the communities who generously welcome this event to their roads and trails.
