Beginning in 2022, the Somabay Endurance Festival will only enforce cut-off times for the Olympic distance, based on the following time limits:

  • Cut-off for Swim: 1 hour

  • Cut-off for Swim + Bike: 3 hours

  • Cut-off for Swim + Bike + Run: 4 hours

The cut-off time will be calculated from each individual athlete's swim start time, making it exactly the same for all participants, and ensuring that there is no benefit gained from starting in an earlier swim wave,

There are no cut-off times for the Sprint, Sprint Relay, Supersprint, Youth, 10K, or 1K Kids Race.


All athletes will be timed using the MyLaps Timing System for accurate results through the electronic timing chip. Final results will be posted online and organised via overall ranking and age groups and gender with the top finishers in every 5-year age group earning gold, silver, and bronze medals, while the top overall winners are honoured on the podium, receiving their champions' medals and prizes.
