Swim – pull buoys or lava shorts (cheater shorts) are allowed, as they are similar to wearing a wet suit.
Bike – you must weigh yourself prior to starting the bike – this to establish the correct resistance to be used as a function of your body weight (see chart below). Bikes are equipped with toe cages and SPD (mountain bike) clip in pedals. The bikes do have water bottle holders. NOTE personal music devices are acceptable on the bike and the treadmill.
Run – this will be on the treadmill using a self-selected speed and a standard 1.5% incline grade

Swim 1 point for every 100y swam (ie. .01 points for every yard swam – mid lap finishes will be estimated.
Bike 1 point for every “trip” (1 “trip” is 200 revolutions of the pedals)
Run 3 points for every KM run (ie 1 point for every .33 of a Km)
Example for me
Swim 20 min swim 1000 y = 10 points
Bike @ 85 Rpm, 20 mins = 8.5 trips = 8.5 points
Run (estimate) 6 mins/ km = 3.33 km = 9.99 points
