This will also give us chance to make sure that everything is in place for the Children’s race.
We also only have parking for 300 cars. We need for some of the competitors in the adult race to leave to make room for your cars. Sorry but we don’t have any choice.

The link below will take you to a full set of results for 2016.
New swim course for this year’s children’s race. No lap’s just one loop for each race. 50m, 150m, 200, 300, this will make the swim easier for the children.
We can only start the children’s race when the last competitor has started there last lap of the run in the adult race. This will now be at 10.30 am. We need to have reopened the road by 1pm so all waves will need to start on time.
As we are restricted for space registration will only open at 9.15am for the children’s race.
You will be able to rack your bike 1 hour before you are due to start.
This will give us time to clear part of the Transition area after the adult race to make room for the junior race.
We hope to have the Transition area clear of all adult bikes by 10.30am
Care must be taken when entering the site early as the adult race will still be taking place.
All children must be at the briefing area 15 minutes before their wave is due to start. We will be announcing any updates on the PA as the day goes on.
So please listen to any updates.
Start times will be sent out the week before the race date by e-mail. They will also be posted on the web site.
We will be fencing off all areas this year for safety reasons. We will also be moving the Transition area down to the trees to give us more room. The Finish will also be moved 20m again to give us more room (see site plan)
We made all these changes due to the extra spectators who came to watch the race in 2014
If you have any questions please feel free to ask before the day of the race.
