FAQ

Any questions? Here are the answers!

OFFICIAL RESCHEDULE

You do not have to do anything – registrations and supporting documents are automatically confirmed.

1/ If I am a licensee of the French Triathlon Federation: the license is valid for the whole year 2020 – so it will be automatically valid for the new date.

2/ For non-licensees, your competition day pass will be valid for the new date. As a reminder, the medical certificate or the sports license must indicate your ability to participate in a triathlon at competition level and be dated less than one year before the competition. The organisation will check all the medical certificates already provided to ensure their validity on the new dates. Each triathlete in this case will receive an e-mail before Tuesday, April 14, indicating if his medical certificate is valid for the new dates. If the medical certificate is no longer valid, the triathlete will have to provide a valid medical certificate before Monday 21 September at 12:00 noon. The process for submitting medical certificates on the Njuko platform is the same.

No worries, cancellation insurance works in case of the rescheduling of the event. An email from Circle Ticketing was sent to you when you registered – just follow the steps.
If you no longer have the e-mail, you can easily access your registration. Take a look at the short guide which fully explains the process – Download guide

All options subscribed (competition day pass, wetsuit rental) will be reimbursed by the organisation as soon as we have been informed of your cancellation.

You have three options:
1/ You may transfer your bib to someone you know. You can find the procedure details by clicking here.

2/ If you do not know someone personally who would like to acquire your bib, you can also choose to sell it here. Your bib will then feature on the online Swika platform. Once it has been sold, you will receive a refund on your registration from Swika.

3/ Transfer your registration to the “Emeraude Events” which is a Triathlon organised close to Dinard and Saint-Lunaire, on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September. There are  M and L triathlon races. If you want to change your bib for this race, you can contact the organisation at contact@triathlondeauville.com.

Due to COVID-19 situation, the organization decided to suspend the bibs sale, to allow exchange between participants, from Tuesday, April 7. To buy a bib, go to the SWIKA platform by clicking here.

It will not be possible to change competitions via the organization’s platform. You will be able to put your current bib on sale on Swika and buy a new bib on Swika too!

Due to COVID-19, the entire Deauville International Triathlon team is confined and work from their homes. You can reach us by email at contact@triathlondeauville.com – we will provide you an answer as soon as possible.

COMPANIES AND CLUBS

It is possible for companies and clubs to register as a group. The invoice may then be addressed to a legal entity (association or business) for all or part of the cost of registration and any other options.

This may be important as part of a club or company outing. For example, a company may choose to take over the cost of its employees’ registration, while having them settle their own day passes or additional options.

To create a group, the leader must contact the event organiser by email: contact@triathlondeauville.com. For all races, you need to be a minimum of 15 participants to be considered as a group.

No documents (licence or certificate) are required to register online – they can be provided at a later stage. You can upload your supporting documents (licence or medical certificate) using the link on the email confirmation received once your registration is completed. Consult the guide to upload supporting documents.

It is imperative to provide the following documents before the registration platform closes (on 21 september 2020):

  • or, for those without a licence, you must subscribe to a competition/day pass (day licence). To do this, you must pay the fee and provide a medical certificate that is dated within the last 12 months and indicates your ability to participate in a triathlon at competition level.

The copy of the licence or medical certificate must be uploaded on the registration platform. The platform will be closed on 21 september 2020.

Failure to do the above will entail exclusion from the competition, and no refund will be made on the cost of registration. No documents will be accepted when picking up bibs.

As a reminder, a competition day pass is a third-party liability insurance taken out with the French Triathlon Federation.

Those who subscribe to a day pass are hereby informed:
– that they benefit, within the context of this event, to the guarantees foreseen in the contract for third-party liability insurance subscribed by the FFTRI with Allianz;
– that the day pass does not include any type of personal insurance;
– that it may be advisable to take out, through the insurance company of their choice, a personal insurance which covers the risk of any physical damage they may encounter during the practice of sport;
– that their bike is not covered by the insurance. Any damage they cause to their own or any one else’s bike is not covered by the federation’s third-party liability insurance.

Have you had second thoughts and want to hire a wetsuit after all, or wish to add a missing supporting document? No worries, you can easily access your registration to modify the details, by using the link on the registration confirmation that you received by email.

  • Bib pick-up takes place on the “Boulevard de la Mer” in Deauville, at the Tri Expo village.
    To find out the timings dedicated (different for each competition), consult the program by clicking here.
    You must bring along the bib pass (that you will receive by email 2 weeks before the race) and your passport/identity card.If everything is in order, you will be handed over:
  • 1 timing chip and ankle strap
  • 2 bibs (1 for the bike segment and 1 for the run segment)
  • 1 set of stickers (bike saddle, bike helmet, deposit ID)
  • 1 numbered bracelet – which will be put on your wrist straight away
  • 1 bag with the race guide and our partners’ offers

YOUR BIB NUMBER IS YOUR UNIVERSAL ID FOR THE WHOLE TRIATHLON. It corresponds to:
– your place in the bike park
– the container for your sportswear in the bike park
– the number to deposit your bag in the cloakroom

NB: Safety pins are not provided.

The below list is given as an indicative guide only:

For the swim:

  • A wetsuit is compulsory if the sea temperature is below 16°C. Above that, the decision to wear one is up to you. However, be warned that you will be swimming in The Channel: it is very likely that the water will be between 16 and 18°C!
  • 1 bin bag (to put your wetsuit in after the swim, so it does not get your other kit wet)

For the cycling:

  • Your bicycle (all types of bike are authorised)
  • Your helmet, with an attachable neck strap
  • Glasses
  • Energy bar

For the run:

  • Cap / visor cap (because the weather in Normandy is great!)
  • Socks
  • Shoes
  • Energy gel in your belt

After the race:

  • A rucksack
  • Toiletries and towel for a shower
  • A change of clothing

It is important that triathletes feel supported during competitions.
The event organiser therefore allocates bib numbers once the registration platform has closed, so the bike park placing may be done in a logical way and they can:
1/  Group together members of the same club (if the club is indicated when registering)
2/  Group together staff of the same company (via the company procedure – cf. here)

To enable a good swim for everyone, the swim start will take place in free-to-choose sections: EXPERT –  INTERMEDIAIRE (intermediate) – DEBUTANT (beginner).

However, please do not worry about timing: ranking and timing will be done in real-time, as the stop-watch will automatically be set off when the competitor crosses the start line.

Timing and ranking are done in real-time: the stop-watch automatically sets off when the competitor crosses the start line.
