REGULATION

  1. Introduction
    Omegathlon Operating Organization (hereinafter “OOO”) defines this regulation so that every participant (hereinafter “Omegathlete”) may enjoy Omegathlon safely and fairly.
  2. Race rule
    OOO specifies the general framework of race rule as below. In an individual race, Omegathlete should follow the local rule provided in the individual race organizer (hereinafter “Organizer”).

    1. Stages
      Omegathlon consists of three stages.
      1st stage: Swim and Rubik’s cube
      2nd stage: Bike and Blindfolded Rubik’s cube
      3rd stage: Run and One-handed Rubik’s cube
      Between the stages, Omegathletes are required to prepare the next stage by their own called transition.
    2. 1st stage (Swim and Rubik’s cube)
      Omegathletes solve Rubik’s cube while swimming.

      • Basically, any swimming styles are accepted. In some races, Organizer has authority to limit the swimming style.
      • If the race is held in swimming pool, the Rubik’s cube should not be turned within 2 seconds after Omegathlete touches wall or floor.
      • In case of pop of Rubik’s cube, Omegathlete should collect all parts in the water. Otherwise, Omegathlete could be disqualified by Organizer.
    3. 2nd stage (Bike and Blindfolded Rubik’s cube)
      • Only stationary bike (e.g. exercise bike in gymnasium) should be used for the race. This is to consider the safety of Omegathlete and others.
      • The load setting of the stationary bike should be determined by Organizer.
    4. 3rd stage (Run and One-handed Rubik’s cube)
      • Only running machine (e.g. treadmill) should be used for the race. Also, Omegathlete should support his/her body by one hand with the shoulder of running machine. This is to consider the safety of Omegathlete and others.
  3. Code of conduct for Omegathletes
    1. All Omegathletes are responsible for both own safety and safety of others.
    2. Each Omegathlete must support other Omegathlete carry out the race.
  4. Example of race type

Standard 51.5km

Venue 25m indoor pool
Gymnasium (with stationary bike and running machine)
Transition Not timed (due to long distance move from pool to gymnasium)
Stage 1
  • 1500m swim
  • Any swimming styles are allowed
  • At one side of the pool end,
  • Organizer scrambles Rubik’s cube.
  • Omegathlete may carry only ONE cube at once.
  • Omegathlete must solve at least 15 Rubik’s cube, otherwise disqualified.
  • Each time Omegathlete solves Rubik’s cube successfully, the swim time will be shortened by 15 sec.
    • e.g.
      1500m swim time → 32 min
      Successfully solved 28 out of 30 Rubik’s cube → 7 min
      Total → 25 min
Stage 2
  • 40km on stationary bike
  • Cycle load is 100W
  • Omegathlete must solve at least 5 Rubik’s cube in blindfolded manner, otherwise disqualified.
  • Each time Omegathlete solve blindfolded Rubik’s cube successfully, the bike time will be shortened by 3 minutes.
    • e.g.
      40km bike → 1 hour 20 min
      Successfully solved 10 out of 20 → 30 min
      Total → 50 min
 Stage 3
  • 10km on running machine
  • Omegathlete may decide the speed of the machine.
  • Omegathlete must solve at least 10 Rubik’s cube by one hand, otherwise disqualified.
  • Each time Omegathlete solve onehanded Rubik’s cube successfully, the bike time will be shortened by 1 minutes.
    • e.g.
      10km run → 1 hour
      Successfully solved 10 out of 20 → 10 min
      Total → 50 min

2 Day Long

Schedule Day 1: Stage 1 (Swim and Rubik’s cube)
Day 2: Stage 2 (Bike and Blindfolded Rubik’s cube)
Stage 3 (Run and One-handed Rubik’s cube)
Venue 50m indoor pool
Gymnasium (with stationary bike and running machine)
Transition Not timed
Stage 1
  • 3800m swim
  • Any swimming styles are allowed.
  • At one side of the pool end, Organizer scrambles Rubik’s cube.
  • Omegathlete may carry any number of cubes at once.
  • Omegathlete must solve at least 30 Rubik’s cube, otherwise disqualified.
  • Each time Omegathlete solves Rubik’s cube successfully, the swim time will be shortened by 30 sec.
    • e.g.
      3800m swim time → 2 hour 30 min
      Successfully solved 34 out of 38
      Rubik’s cube → 17 min
      Total → 2 hour 13 min
Stage 2
  • 200km on stationary bike
  • Any Cycle load is acceptable.
  • Omegathlete must solve at least 15 Rubik’s cube in blindfolded manner, otherwise disqualified.
  • Each time Omegathlete solve blindfolded Rubik’s cube successfully, the bike time will be shortened by 3 minutes.
    • e.g.
      200km bike → 6 hour 30 min
      Successfully solved 20 out of 36 → 60 min
      Total → 5 hour 30 min
Stage 3
  • 42.195km on running machine
  • Omegathlete may decide the speed of the machine.
  • Omegathlete must solve at least 50 Rubik’s cube by one hand, otherwise disqualified. Each time
  • Omegathlete solve blindfolded Rubik’s cube successfully, the bike time will be shortened by 1 minutes.
    • e.g.
      42.195km run → 5 hour
      Successfully solved 100 → 100 min
