Where can I find the event schedule?

As we go near race day, an indicative wave start schedule will be shown on the INFO tab of the MetaSprint Series website.

How will I know my start time?

A few days before closing of registration, all Sprint distance registered participants will receive an email prompting them to select a time slot, which will determine their start time on race day. 

If you were unable to choose a time slot, the Race Director will allocate your time slot.

Discovery, Youth and Kids

Discovery, Youth and Kids distance registered participants will have their time slot allocated by the Race Director. No action is needed on your end.

Can I change my time slot?

Yes, when we send out the notification to the Sprint distance participants, as long as registration is open and there is availability for the new timing, you will be able to change your time slot.

You will need to access your registration through the registration page, using your email and booking reference number. 

Please note that once the Participant’s list is published, any changes made after will not show on this list. Once registration is closed, changes are no longer allowed.

Where can I leave my things?

A bag drop provided to store your items while you race. It is manned by one of our volunteers, and it will be in the vicinity of the race area. To be on the safe side, it is best to only bring what is needed on race day.

Where do I put the items, I will need for the Bike and Run leg?

There is a transition area for participants. Participants are designated a specific spot where they can set up their bike and run items before the start of the race. 

After the swim, participants will go through transition area to change to their bike gear and pick up their bike to take to the bike start.

After the bike, participants will go back to the transition area to rack their bike and put on their running gear (if applicable) and continue on the run.

Please make sure to collect your items in the transition area after the race.

Who can enter the transition area?

Only participants wearing the security bracelet are allowed to enter the transition area. 

For the kid’s competition, participants are provided a “Parent Bracelet” in their race kit. This is for one parent/guardian to wear so they can enter the transition area to assist the athlete in setting up their transition at the start of the race. Once done, the parent must leave the transition area.

Please note that help or assistance of any sort extended to the athlete during the race is not allowed. The athletes of any parent or guardian, who are found to violate this rule or the direction given by the race organiser, may be penalised or disqualified.

Am I allowed to ride my bike in the transition area?

No, riding bikes in the transition area is not allowed. You must push your bike through transition going to the mount line to start your cycle leg and push it from the dismount line back to your rack.

Am I allowed to run in the transition area?

Yes, running in the transition area is allowed.

Do I need to wear a helmet during the bike leg?

Yes, helmets are compulsory. Athletes are required to wear helmets when riding their bike.

Do I need to wear a race bib during the bike leg?

No, you do not need to wear your race bib during the bike leg. But your bike flag must be attached to your seat post, and your helmet sticker placed on the front of your helmet.

Can I race with headphones or earbuds?

No, headphones or similar devices are not allowed to be used at any time while racing, this is as per rules and regulations. Participants wearing such items during the race will be disqualified.


The swim area for the Aquathlon is in Sentosa, which is offers a perfect environment with its calm waters and scenic landscape. 

The Triathlon swim will be at the East Coast Park, the area is more exposed to swells and currents, but is still considered quite calm. 

The water temperature will be approximately 28°C and easy to navigate, just follow the guide rope!

Yes. We understand that swimming in the open water can be a nervous time. You can use a regulation swim buoy that buckles around your waist during the race.

No, wetsuits are not allowed, however, you can make use of a swimskin.

Swimmers in difficulty should signal by raising an arm to the escorting boat/kayak/stand-up paddle for assistance. If an athlete is evacuated from the swim course, they will be checked by the medical team. If deemed medically fit, the athlete may continue with the rest of the race. 

Do note however, they will receive a DNF for not completing the full swim course.

We expect good water conditions and no jellyfish. In case you do get stung, be assured that the medical team is ready to help.
