Prepping for Race Day

Relay Waiver

Race packages can be picked up on race day, or save time and collect your race package on Thursday, March 7th at the UBC Vancouver campus at the Robert H Lee Alumni Centre from 6 to 9PM. You'll need to show Government photo ID and sign a waiver only if you are part of a relay team. Your race package will come in a UBC Triathlon branded bag and includes your race number and safety pins, event information and race day procedures, sponsor products, upcoming event information and a few race goodies. This bag will serve as your wet bag on race day,  Details about race package pickup will be sent to participants after the registration deadline.-->

Wet Bag Process

Participants will be given a bag when they pick up their race package. Fill it with anything you would like to have following your swim (e.g. towel, change of clothes, flip flops) and drop it off with our staff on the pool deck on Race Day. After your swim, your wet bag will be handed to you as you exit the pool and before you get changed. You can also leave your wet bag at the pool and it will be available at cycle trans following your race.
