If the athlete receives a second BLACK card, the referee will mark his/her race number with a cross. The athlete is excluded from participating in the race by notifying the staff responsible for timekeeping and the staff present at the penalty box and at the transition area. The disqualification will be recorded by the referee and signed by the athlete. The athlete can continue the race and finish it. The athlete will not be included in the ranking of individual legs and marked as disqualified (DQ) on the list of results.

It is the athlete's responsibility to proceed to the penalty box on arrival at the transition area. If the athlete misses to go to the penalty box, he/she will be disqualified. The disqualification can be applied also after the race.

If an athlete receives a yellow card during the running segment, the referee will ask the athlete to stop completely, he will be notified of the violation and consequently the race number will be marked with the letter "P". The athlete can then continue the race.

If an athlete receives a second yellow card during the running segment, a penalty of 3 minutes for the Half Distance and 6 of minutes for the Full Distance will be added to the total time achieved.

All penalties applied during the race (red, yellow and black cards) will be published on a board in the transition area one hour after the end of the race.
