Today at Sandringham School Training Triathlon Day.
This event is open to both members and non members however Pre-Registration is required and will close on Sunday 1st May 1800 hours. Details at the bottom of the page.
Just like the practice aquathlon earlier this year, the event is all geared around the participants having fun, trying out the course that will be used for our open race in early July and for those that have never experienced a triathlon before to give the race a go. As usual we will have coaches in the transition area to help the competitors transition on to their bike safely from the swim and transition off the bike on to the run.
Distances will be as follows:
(1 swim length = 25 yards, 1 bike lap = 800m and 1 run lap = 400m)
Tristar Start – 2 Lengths Swim, 1 Bike Lap and 1 Run Lap
Tristar 1 – 6 Lengths Swim, 2 Bike Lap and 3 Run Lap
Tristar 2 – 8 Lengths Swim, 5 Bike Lap and 4 Run Lap
Tristar 3 – 12 Lengths Swim, 7 Bike Lap and 6 Run Lap
Youth – 12 Lengths Swim, 7 Bike Lap and 6 Run Lap
Registration will be from 1300, Transition Closing and Race Briefing about 1345 with racing commencing about 1410 with the oldest first.
We will also be holding an adult / coaches sprint race over the same distances as the Youths.
Also for siblings who are not yet 8 we will be holding a scootathlon which will have a short scoot on tarmac, a bike ride of approximately 500m and a 400m run. Note competitors will need cycle helmets for both the scooter and bike ride.
Triathlon Cost – £3 for 2016 paid up members or their parents and £6 for non members or parents payable on the day.
Scootathlon – Free
