  • Rapidly developing emergency situation,

  • Bike Course / Run Course,
    If an emergency situation arises whilst athletes are on the bike and/or run course, the Race Director will sound the siren and direct Volunteers via radio to evacuate the course. It is imperative that you follow the instructions of PTC Committee Members & Volunteers without question.
