News update 16/8/2021
A big thank you to everyone that raced this years Midnight Man Triathlon. I would like to thank you all for all the nice e-mails. Running this race for the last 10 years has been amazing. In that time I have had the pleaser to meet so many nice people. Take care and I hope to see you all again soon.
2021 Start list . This is now the final start list for Saturday. Its has been sent to the timing company and no changes can now be made.
Refund policy Please read our refund policy. We are not trying to be mean but we have turned away a lot of people over the last 4 weeks that could have raced.
We have not had a reply from British Triathlon so we will now be having a mass start at 5.30pm for the quarter and the half.
The full distance race will start at 6pm for the. You will be asked to wait on the pavement to keep transition clear.
Doing this the faster people in the standard will be finishing as the Full distance competitors will be going out on the bike. This will reduce the number of people on the bike course at any one time.
Due to losing part of the bike course. The full will be 27laps. The half 13 and the Standard 6 laps.
Wet suits are optional. I would sooner everyone wear one but we can’t make you. If it goes over 22 degrees Standard, 23 for the half and 24 for the full distance race it becomes a no wet suit swim.
Spectators can now attend the event but we do ask you to keep apart. We do also now a tea wagon coming along. Not sure how long they will stay for as its a long night
Remember to bring the following to make the race easer for you
1, Lights on your bike for the Full and half.
2, Speedo so you can keep an eye on how far you cycled. There will be a lap counter on the bike and run
3 There will be a large TV screen by the finish area so you can double check.
4, You will be given a Aid bag at registration to put anything you need during the bike or run. This will by the feed station in number order. It does get very cold during the night due to being close to 2 lakes and the river.
