Welcome to the Roy Nasr Memorial Triathlon by JLL at the Jebel Ali Resort, Dubai, UAE.
The Roy Nasr Memorial Triathlon is now in it’s ninth year. Roy, who co-founded TriDubai, was tragically killed by a motorist whilst riding his bike near Safa Park in the early hours of Friday 6th September 2013 before he could realise his dream of building a reputable race events management company. His legacy lives on through this race.
There will be a short race briefing – Please always listen carefully to the announcements as any last minute changes will be addressed.
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 marshall.
Your bag will contain:
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).
RACE NUMBER – 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 colour shown on the information board. It is compulsory to wear these swim caps in the swim.
Timing antennas will be positioned at the entry and the exit of transition, and at the finish line. RaceME will endeavour to provide you with all your 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 you withdraw during the event please make sure you return your timing chip, otherwise we will think you are still out there racing!
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! “We advise you NOT to cover the chip with your wetsuit as this sometimes can block the chip being read on the antenna’s”.
A set of results will be available on our website www.raceme.ae as soon as possible after the event. Any queries relating to the race timings should be emailed to email@example.com within 2 days of the race, after which time all results will be deemed as final and complete.
