Race day information is below.
Race run through
The gates will be open from 7.30am and Registration will now open at 7.45am in the café area. We suggest you get there early so you will have the chance to ride on the track before the race to warm up.
Helmets must be worn at all times on the track.
All 3 the race will start at 8.45am and the last competitor should finish by about 11.30am. Don’t worry there is no cut off time for the run.
The race starts with two laps 9k (or one 5k lap) as shown on the course map.
There will be water stations at the start of the second lap.
At this point you turn left to start your 2nd lap. For the Sprint you head back to the cycle park.
The GOTri is a 2.5k run. You will turn just before the bridge and head back down a bridal path.
It’s then back onto the track for a 30bike (12 laps) or 20k bike (8 laps) GOTri is 6 laps.
It’s easy to keep count if you have a speedo. If you don’t have one just time your first lap, then just keep adding that time each time you finish a lap. You will get a bit slower but you should still be able to work it out.
It’s then back out onto the second run for 1 lap again for the Sprint and long course.
The GOTri will turn again at the same place as the first lap just before the bridge.
I will be there for the first lap directing you.
When you running in and out of the cyclopark keep to the side and not run in the middle of the road.
There will be a point on the Sprint and Long course race that you will come out on to a road for 400m. Keep tight to the left. It’s a very quiet road but you may still get the odd car.
There will also be bottles of water to take with you for the second run if you need them.
There will be 2 race briefs one at 8.30 for everyone doing the GOTri and at 8.40am to go over the whole race.
The Prize giving will be after the last person has crossed the line.
Due to the size of each race at the moment there will only be a 1st, 2nd, 3rd place trophies for male and females for each distance.
All our events are covered by BTF and our own Public liability insurance.

It’s going to be a warm day so keep drinking.
We hope you enjoy the race.
