Frequently Asked Registration Questions

Clinics include a safety demonstration, explanation of the race and its route, as well as a chance for teams to practice getting over the wall. For your team to be eligible to race, at least one person from your team MUST attend a clinic. It is recommended that you have at least four individuals from your team attend clinics so that you can practice on the walls.

Ironpersons and Super Ironpersons can attend any clinic of their choice. They must attend a clinic to be eligible to race. Ironpersons and Super Ironpersons will be allowed to practice on the wall at clinics after the other teams have cleared. They will receive an allotted practice time and once that time has passed, they will be cut off and will receive no further time on the wall.

For clinics you just need to bring your student ID card. If you're practicing on the walls, we recommend that you wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in, and that you don't mind getting dirty.

There are four different categories that you can select when you are registering as a team: Male, Female, CoRec, or Just For Fun.

Just For Fun

If you're here to try your hand at the UBC tradition and have a great time with your friends, the Just For Fun category could be right for you! There are no gender ratio requirements for Just For Fun teams, and the swim and bike distances are shorter. These teams race only once and do not qualify for advancements and championships.

If this is you, go ahead and register your team!

Competitive Categories

These races are eligible for advancements, finals, and ultimately the winning of a championship shirt.
Male: Teams in the "Male" category consist of only males on the roster.
Female: Teams in the "Female" category consist of only females on the roster.
CoRec: CoRec teams must have 2 males and 2 females complete the 4 lengths of the course (swim, sprint, bike, and run). The 5th person (the wall person), can be of either gender.

If you are registering for a competitive race category, when you are in the registration portal you will be prompted for your Division.

Divisional

If your team is made up of individuals from a single unit - faculty, residence, sorority, or fraternity (or CoRec teams with all males from one fraternity and females from one sorority) - you qualify to compete as a Divisional team. For a list of all Divisions and Units, visit the Unit Rankings by Division page.

Each team is allowed one "import" (one individual on your roster who is not from your declared unit). Teams competing in the corec Hindmarch Division are not allowed any imports.

Campus Wide

The Campus Wide division does not have any restrictions on units.

If you absolutely cannot find a heat that works for your team, you can register for the waitlist option in your category. You will be prompted to pay a registration fee and we will contact you to attempt to find a time that works for your team. We cannot guarantee a scheduled time that will work for your team. If we are unable to find a time that accommodates your schedule, you will be refunded the registration fee.

Note: If it does not prompt you to pay a registration fee, you have entered under the wrong WAITLIST category
