3 Staggered starts

This year, and as a novelty, from the beginning there are 3 staggered and differentiated exits to improve the experience in the swimming sector in the waters of the Ebro River. In addition to the females start, that is given in the first place, giving prominence to the increasingly  large group of female participants, two more different starts will be made in the male category decreasing the number of participants in the first measures of the swimming sector. This differentiation by sex and by batches will allow a faster, more comfortable and safer swimming for all the participants.

As every year, at 14:00, it will begin the female start, the only start that will start the race in Triatlon La Rioja.

10 minutes later, at 14:10 it will begin the first male start with a first group of participants. From the organization we recommend that those triathlets who can complete the 1900 metres of swimming in less than 30 minutes or the total race time of a Half Distance triathlon in 5 hours 15 minutes be registered in this start.

Only 3 minutes later, at 14:13 it will begin the second male start, with the remaining group of participants.

The time in calssification of the male and female participants in each of the sector, as well as the final time, will be in any case the real time inverted, taking into accoun the start time of their batch (the time that passes from the exact start time of your batch to the arrival time to boxes/finish).

There will not be an elite exit and start at exit 1 or exit 2 does not limit for any of the classifications or awards that are given in the Triatlon La Rioja.

The registration to each of the batches is under the free resposibility of each participant. From the organization will not control times or rankings for that decision. For the safety of all, the organization can stop selling numbers for one of the two batches when the time comes, being respected the election of exit of each of the registered until that monent. The organization reserves a quote of 50 numbers of the first batch for commitments and invitations.
