COVID-19 INFORMATION

Please adhere to social distancing guidelines at all times. Myself and Louie will make every effort to provide enough space for you to maintain at least 2 metres from any other person within the transition area and ask that you continue to do so during the event.

I will supply hand sanitiser which will be available for you to use this before and after the race.

You must not share equipment with any other participant and please ensure that you clear any rubbish and either use the bins provided or take it home with you.

Please understand that while we will do as much as we can to ensure your safety, we also expect a common sense approach from all participants. Anybody we feel is not adhering to guidelines in a sensible fashion, will be asked to leave. And remember your safety is your own responsibility.

Arrival

Please arrive 15 – 30 minutes before your wave start time. This should give you ample time to familiarise yourself with transition, warm up, discuss any queries you may have with the team and use the facilities if necessary.

registration

Your race number and medal will be at an allocated place in transition. This will be your area to keep your bike and trainers and any nutrition/hydration you may require during the event.

the start

The start line will be marked on the ground, with Black and Yellow tape. It will be away from transition, positioned appropriately for social distancing.

We are reintroducing a staggered mass start. we will be starting 10 participants every 30 seconds at all events. This means less hanging around at the start for you, while enabling an opportunity to maintain social distancing where possible and avoiding any bottlenecking early on the run courses.

Please ensure you maintain social distancing while waiting to start. And be ready to start a your allocated time to avoid holing up any other participants. If you arrive at the start time after your time has gone, you will have to wait until all other participants have started to commence your race.

the run

Please run on the left side of the pavement to allow for overtaking and returning runners.

Please ensure you are adhering to social distancing measures while running. Overtaking is allowed but if you are overtaken, please drop back slightly to allow for adequate distance. If you overtake, please move over to the right, but ensure you avoid any oncoming runners.

the ride

The mount line will be well out of the car park/transition area, and it will be marked with a flag. The dismount line will be at the same line as where you mounted your bike. Please walk/run with your bike from/to transition. DO NOT mount or dismount before these points. This has been put in place to avoid any confusion between cyclists, runners or motorists as well as providing additional space to adhere to social distancing.

  • All riders MUST wear a helmet and will not be allowed on the course without one.

FAQs

Yes, these events are aimed at everybody. As a Go Tri event, we are creating accessible duathlons suitable for all abilities.

Can my son/daughter take part with me?
The event is open to anyone over the age of 15.

Am I ok riding my mountain bike or do I need a road bike?
As long as your bike is road legal, you can ride any bike you own. Mountain, road, time trial, even shoppers with baskets.

When do I drop my bike off at transition?
Registration will open at 8am the morning of the event. Get yourself registered, then take your bike and anything else you need to transition. Transition will be manned at all times and only athletes with race numbers will be permitted entry.

Can you put me in an early wave please?
The first athletes will start at 09:00 and groups of 10 – 20 will start every 15 seconds thereafter. We aim to have as many athletes on the course at the same time as possible. This will reduce hanging around before and after the event and will also help create a great atmosphere on the course.
