Regulations

PARTICIPATION DAY INSURANCE AND LICENSE

Participation in Triathlon North Africa is open to athletes of any nationality, licensed or not.

Each participant who takes part in the event individually must do so under their own responsibility and agrees to have a fitness level sufficient to complete each segment. We strongly recommend that all athletes have travel and health insurance.

DRAFTING

DRAFTING (Full distance)

Drafting is the act of riding behind another cyclist in an area of reduced air pressure created in the wake of that leading cyclist.

The drafting zone is defined as a rectangular area 10m long by 2m wide surrounding each bicycle.

A triathlete can only enter the drafting zone of another triathlete in the following circumstances:

  • For security reasons
  • At an aid station
  • At the entrance or exit of the transition area
  • In sharp turns
  • Other safety reasons

If the triathlete is flagged for drafting, he must immediately leave the drafting area.  A five minute time penalty will be assessed at the finish.

Drafting is allowed in the Olympic race.

  • Cutting off other triathletes is prohibited
  • Pass always on the right side of the road
  • We recommend to take nutrition supplies (ie, gels, bars) on the bike section

SAFETY AND MEDICAL ASSISTANCE

Areas will be controlled by organization security.

Medical services for the organization will be along the route and will be authorized to remove any participant for medical reasons.

Any emergency vehicle that needs to use the cycling route will indicate their presence through light and sound signals. In all cases the vehicle will have priority over the triathletes, who must give way. Every participant has an obligation to provide first aid if there is a need!
