Northwich Aquathlon 2015 (TriStar/Youth/Junior/adult)
03 May 15
This year's event is the final time our Northwich Aquathlon will be held at the Moss Farm complex, where it has been held for many years. The pool is closing down the week after our event as a new pool has been built in the town centre.
The aquathlon is always a very popular race of the Junior Series with competitors and spectators. It is again taking place on the first Bank Holiday weekend in May (Sunday 3rd May), so we can expect blue skies and soaring temperatures!
The wave information will NOT be available until a day or so before the event so please don't contact us for specific timings, as we will not know final entry numbers and age group splits until then. Race information will be sent out by email shortly after entry closes and wave info will follow on at least 24 hours before the event. It will also be displayed on the Warrington Triathlon Club website and at the race registration.
As a guide, first wave will start just after 9:30am with the Tristar Starts. Waves follow in age group order, with the Youth, Junior and Adult races last. Although dependant on numbers, the latter waves are usually out of the pool by about 12:00 to 12:30. Again, we stress that this is provisional and depends on actual race entry numbers.
The swim is held in the 25m indoor, 6 lane heated swimming pool and the run takes place on the adjacent grass sports field, within the complex grounds.
For all Tristar Start, T1, T2 and T3 age groups, the run course is multiple laps (1, 2, 3 or 4) of the SMALL (600m) course, and is flat. The Youth, Junior and Adults will run 4 laps of the LARGE course (1.25km), which is around the perimeter of the grounds and includes a short, sharp hill at the far end. (Appropriate footwear will be required if the field is wet).
There are plenty of vantage points for spectators, including inside the run course itself.
By popular demand, we are again allowing entries from adults. The adult waves will be after all junior series races are completed.
