A date for your diaries – Saturday 16th July 2011.
This is a great event organised by Tri Team Glos. We have supported in the past and everyone who has done it has enjoyed it. Let me know if you want to take part this year please? The event fills up very quickly so I need to get entries in ASAP.
Thanks Phil, Team manager (email)
The event consists of three consecutive triathlon races:
• Race 1 is a traditional SWIM, BIKE, RUN.
• Race 2 is the reverse RUN, BIKE, SWIM
• Race 3 is a mixture BIKE, SWIM, RUN
Each Adult race distance is 200m swim (8 lengths), 5km bike (10 laps) and a 1km run (laps).
Childrens races start at 75m swim, 1.5km bike, 900m swim for Tristars Start (aged 8 ) getting longer for older kids in line with BTF guidance.
There will be 5 minutes’ organisation time after the last team in the wave finishes before the next race starts. During this time you will need to re-rack your bike, organise your transition area and get to the start of the next race.
There will be six teams in each wave and there will be five waves. Waves have been ability-graded as well as possible in order to make each wave competitive.
