Now in its 9th year, the JLL Triathlon Series is a season favourite amongst new and old triathletes. Now featuring Olympic, Sprint and Super-Sprint distances. Race around Jebal Ali Resort and experience the once a year sea view as you race along the Jabal Ali Palm road.
DIRECTIONS TO JEBAL ALI RESORT
JLL Triathlon Series is based in and around the grounds of the JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort. The JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort is well signposted from the E11 (Sheikh Zayed Road). See the map on the right for further instructions.
From Dubai – Drive down the E11 (Sheik Zayed Road) until you have passed Jebel Ali Village and the first entrance of Jebel Ali Freezone. Take the exit that directs you to JAFZA gates 7,8 & 9 (Exit 13). Follow the road and continue straight through the traffic light crossroads until you reach the first roundabout where you turn left. Continue along the road, taking the first road on your right. Continue down this road to the turn off for access to Parking Area 3.
Car parking – Car parking is available on a first come, first served basis. Parking Area 3 is about 5 minutes walk from transition.
* PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE MAIN HOTEL CAR PARK *
Online on Zoom! There will be a mandatory online race briefing on Zoom. You will receive the Zoom link in a separate email. The briefing will likely be on the Wednesday evening before the event. Please attend this race briefing as any last minute changes will be discussed, as well as any questions answered at the end.
At your corresponding allocated number on the bike racks you will find your drawstring bag and race chip. If it is not there please seek a RaceME Senior Team member.
TIMING CHIP & ANKLE STRAP
You need to attach the timing chip to your LEFT ankle. Your chip will be collected from you at the finish line – if you don’t return your chip at this point you will be liable for a fee of AED 100 – so please remember to return it! (Note that we are not using the ChampionChip system – so please use the timing chip given to you at registration – any other chip will not work).
A race number must be clearly visible on your back for the bike, and your front for the run. Relay teams are required to pass the race number from one team member to the other in transition.
* PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR OWN RACE BELT *
Each wave will start with a different colour cap. Please make sure the colour of the cap in your race pack matches the co-lour shown on the information board. It is compulsory to wear these swim caps in the swim.
Timing antennas will be positioned at the entry to the water, transition in & out and at the finish line as well as check points on the course. RaceME will endeavour to provide you with all your major timing splits, but this is not guaranteed. Very occasionally, a timing chip may not be read or a timing antenna may fail and timing splits may not be available. You’ll receive a total finish time providing we can see your race number when you cross the finish line. If this is the case we will request your race data form you personally to cross check the reads we have and provide you with a race time. Wearing a personal tracking device is recommended. If you withdraw during the event please make sure you return your timing chip, otherwise we will think you are still out there racing!
A set of results will be available on the RaceME website www.raceme.ae as soon as possible after the event. RaceME hopes they’ll all be perfect, but any queries relating to them should be emailed to them within 48 hours after the event, after which time all results will be deemed as final and complete.
It is essential that you are aware of the weather conditions during the race. It is expected to be hot with very little, if any, shade. There will be ambulances on standby throughout the duration of the race but you must take care to race sensibly in such conditions. If you start to get headaches, feel dizzy and nauseous then you may be suffering from heat exhaustion and need to seek medical advice. Listen to your body. Talk to the nearest volunteer who will be able to help you get attention.
The common symptoms of heat exhaustion include: confusion, muscle cramps, heavy sweating, headaches, nausea/vomiting and dizziness. If you become aware of these symptoms then seek medical help immediately.
Please stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids in the days leading up to the race and remember to continue to take on fluids on the morning before the swim start.
During the bike and run try to drink about 500ml of fluids per hour. There will be water available from aid stations but please make sure you have sufficient fluids of
your own on your bike.
