We welcome Team entries, Please note the following details if you are entering in the team section. The team competition will run within the individual event. You can enter teams comprising of two or three athletes. Swimmers will start off with the timing chip which will act as the relay “baton” throughout the race.
Each team will be allocated a race number, which can be found on www.liveactive.co.uk 3 days prior to race day. At registration, your team will be issued with two race numbers, one for Cyclist and One for Runner. The race numbers for teams will follow a different sequence to those of the individual event to allow easier identification on the course.
Swim to Bike transition
On exiting the swim the team swimmer must run into their transition area space, remove their wet suit, remove their timing chip and pass this on to the team cyclist who will be waiting in the transition area by their bike. The cyclist must place the chip around their left ankle before leaving transition with their helmet secure. Walk/run with your bike to the mount line and mount your bike beyond the mount line.
Bike to Run transition
On completion of the bike leg, dismount your bike at the dismount line and walk/run into the transition area. Pass your bike to the transition marshal before removing your helmet and chip. Team runners must be waiting in the designated waiting area. Cyclists must run into the area and pass on the chip to the runner. Runners then place the chip around their ankle before leaving the waiting area.
All competitors will receive an exclusive race memento.
