All Competitors: 

Race rules 

Normal  race  rules  apply  in  line  with  the  British  Triathlon  Federation handbook. Wetsuits are recommended but  NOT compulsory. Cycle helmets must be fastened before un-racking the bike,  worn throughout the bike leg, and not unfastened and removed until the bike is racked back in transition. Granite  Man  is  a  non-drafting  race  ("draft busters" will  be  patrolling  the  bike course  and  are  under  instruction  to  issue  a  10 minute  time  penalty  if  you  are considered to be drafting).  Persistent offenders will be disqualified.  In matters of dispute, the Race Director's decision will be final


For safety reasons, competitors are prohibited from using IPod’s (or similar) at  any stage during the race. Failure to comply with this rule will result in disqualification.

Race withdrawal  

If you withdraw from the race at any point please inform a time-keeper or other race official.  It is extremely important that we are aware of all competitors’ whereabouts due to the length of the course.


There will   be   canoe   cover   for    the   swim and the club first aid officer will be in attendance. There will  be  marshals  on  the  bike  and  run courses, but the  roads remain open to the public and, as such, normal rules of the road apply. You cannot rely upon the marshals to stop traffic for you.


There are no showers available at transition after the race but the Beau Sejour Leisure Centre have offered their shower and changing facilities to triathletes on the day. 

Sun cream 

Please make sure you have sun cream as there will be none available at the event and we have ordered a sunny day! In the unlikely event that the sun doesn't shine, no refunds will be issued, but the sea breeze still means it is very easy to get burnt!

Time restrictions for Middle Distance competitors 

For your own safety we have set time limits, within which the three parts of the race must be completed. If you are outside these time limits, the Race  Director  and/or other Race Officials reserve the right to remove competitors  who  they believe could present a danger to themselves or others.

Individual times   Cumulative times 

Swim – 1 hour          Swim – 1 hour

Bike – 4 hours           Bike – 5 hours

 Run – 3 hours          Run – 8 hours

Time restrictions for Sprint competitors

 There are no time restrictions on the race, we expect that you will all finish well ahead of the middle distance competitors.

Toilets for competitors

The  nearest  toilets  to  the  transition  area  are  next  to  the  Beach House  Café  at 

Pembroke. Toilet locations have also been marked on the course maps in case  they are needed during the race.


There is free all day parking close to the transition area.  There is a choice of 3 car parks along Pembroke Bay.  The furthest, but largest, car park is to the right hand side of the Beach House café as you are facing the bay, the next is to the left of the Beach House café immediately facing you as you arrive at the  bay  and the smallest (and  closest) is  next  to  registration,  further  to  the  left  of  the  bay.  We  would strongly encourage athletes and supporters to use the first two car parks away from transition to ease congestion  on  the  day  and  to  permit  free  movement  of  Race Officials'/emergency vehicles.


Spectators  are particularly  welcome  to watch  the event  and  enjoy  the  beach  at Pembroke.    There is a Café at Pembroke Bay, "The Beach  House", which serves drinks and food all day.  

The green beach hut at the top of the slipway will also be open for tea, coffee and light snacks.

There are public toilets in the building situated next to the Beach House.  The best viewing spots  have been highlighted  on all the course  maps and have been posted on the  website.  The Middle Distance bike and run  courses  both  consist  of  2  laps, thus  ensuring  that  there  will  be  plenty  of opportunities to cheer on competitors.


A full set of results will be available on the day of the race.

Please  check all your details  and  make  the  Race  Director  aware  if  any  details  appear  incorrect.                                                                           

A provisional list will be posted on the website, with competitors having 72 hrs to raise any queries.


The organisers cannot  be held  responsible  for competitors' property  lost, stolen or damaged before, during or after this event.  In entering this event you declare that you are eligible to compete as an amateur. You understand that  neither  the  sponsors  nor  the  organisers  Guernsey Triathlon Club LBG (either   collectively  or  as individuals) shall be liable for any loss, damage  or  injury which you may suffer or which might arise directly or indirectly as a result of the race, and whether or not caused wholly or partly by the fault, or negligence, of any of the sponsors
