Transition will be open on race day from 9am and close at 10am. After 10am, you will only be allowed in the transition area as part of the race. Once the last swim wave has begun their race, you will be allowed to enter transition to collect your belongings and leave.

Important - Bring £5 For British Triathlon Insurance

You are required by British Triathlon to purchase a day membership which acts as your own liability insurance for the day. This is mandatory for every competitor who isn't already a member of British Triathlon and hasn't provided us with a BTF number. Please bring £5 cash with you on race day to pay for this.  This money does not go to us and we are required by British Triathlon to enforce it. 

Parking information:

Parking is available at Uncle Tom's Cabin but you will have to pay. Free parking is available a 10-minute walk away at Gunner's Park car park. The organisers assume no responsibility for parking on race day.

Wetsuit hire:

If you have not done so already, please make sure you organise your wetsuit hire ahead of the event. Event hire costs £25 and 100% of this hire charge is donated to Havens Hospice. There will be a stand at the event where you will collect and return the wetsuit. Wetsuits must be reserved in advance by phone 07919 205 498 or by email

British Triathlon Rules

During the cycle stage, race numbers must be visible from the back; during the run stage, race numbers must be visible from the front. Race numbers do not need to be worn during the swim segment. Take care not to fold or damage your number.

Certain items are banned during the race – this includes MP3 players, mobile phones and personal video recording devices. Leave these outside transition.

Helmets must be clipped before the bike is touched, and remain done up until the bike is racked after the cycle stage.

Competitors must keep their distance from the cyclist in front of them, so as not to gain an advantage.

Competitors should only bring into transition what is needed – a small bag can remain but large, bulky boxes are to be taken out of transition whilst the race is live.
