Dear Participants

Everybody should be ready!

So far we are about 50 participants. that is a great number!

Here are a few important updates:
- Race kit pick, running bag and signed waiver drop is on June 3rd at Xianlin Skyways until 4:30 pm

- June 3rd at 5pm we offer a bike course orientation. A member of our team will ride along the bike course on an electric scooter. You can ride along with the bike or your own scooter
This is also the last chance to pick up your race kit, drop your running bag for T2 and pay you participation fee in cash. Apart from that occation we only accept Wechat payment. Please scan the QR code below, accept the friendship request from Patrick and transfer the 100,- RMB to him! All payments must have been completed before Saturday evening!

- June 4th at 5:50 am we will start having a volunteer at the bike parking lot T1. Come early and drop your bike. It will take you 20 minutes to walk up to the lake

- At 6:30 am everyone should be up at the lake. If you enter the Mingxiaoling park after 6:30 am, you will have to pay 70,- RMB entrance fee, plus you will be late for the race start

- From 6:30 we will start marking participants and answer last questions regarding the swim course

- At 7:00 am the race starts

- Please remember: For the run from the lake to T1 (1.600m) you will need running shoes. It is a very uneven cobblestone surface on which you can not run with click pedals

- At T1 there will be an opportunity to drop swim gear and everything else. Just hand it to our volunteer in the orange bib. These items will only be availability at T2 after the race

- At T2 / Finish line everything will work as usual. Volunteers will guide you which way to go/run. When you arrive on the bike, turn into the Hotel compound and take the first turn left. You will see the timing table and volunteer

- After the race we have a breakfast and result ceremony on the terrace of the Zhongshan Sofitel Golf Resort. The price for the buffet breakfast is 100,- RMB which you need to pay to the hotel directly

What's new:
1. The registration and timing system is updated. This hopefully makes it easier for us and delivers online results almost in real-time
2. Whilst the swim and cycle route and distance remain unchanged, the run will be shortened to 6km
3. Sofitel Zhongshan Golf Resort has agreed to once again generously host our event. It will be the place for Transistion 2 and the After Race Breakfast
4. The fees are 100,- CNY per head, no matter starting in a relay or as an individual. This will include a finisher t-shirt
5. The After Race Breakfast will be payable directly to the Sofitel. We have been promised an attractive rate for a sumptuous breakfast
