RACE BRIEFING – ONLINE VIA ZOOM
There will be a mandatory race briefing held online via Zoom 2 days before the event. Please attend this race briefing as any last minute changes will be discussed, as well as any questions answered.
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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org within 2 days of the race, 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.
