Moray Firth Triathlon Club Gordonstoun Sprint Triathlon

04 Sep 2022

Organiser's Description

The Gordonstoun Sprint Triathlon is organised by Moray Firth Triathlon Club and an 'Event Permit' has been granted by British Triathlon.

Covid will hopefully not be an issue but, whilst uncertainty exists, we will continue to protect the Club financially by operating the event on a "Low Cost, No Frills" basis.

There will be no medals and we ask that you bring your own water and refreshments. Prizes will be awarded to overall Male and Female winners. Age group prizes will be awarded dependant on the entry uptake. 

The race will be Chip Timed and we are grateful to Aldi for their financial grant which will help us cover the cost of this system.

Entry Cost - £25 (£19 for Triathlon Scotland members) + Entry Central Service Fee.
This represents excellent value.


Race Information :

412m Pool Swim (18 lengths of the 25 yard pool)
25 Km Cycle on public roads. (Any type of bike would be suitable)
5.0 Km Run (off road, within the Gordonstoun grounds) 

This event is open to competitors of all abilities.
Entrants must be aged 15 or older on 31 December 2022.

Could we please ask that you submit a 400m swim time that is as accurate as possible. This will enable us to sort out heats and lanes with swimmers of similar pace. This makes the swim much more enjoyable for everyone. (Times can be revised right up to the event closing date)

 

Parental / Guardian Permission
All competitors aged between 15 and 17 (on 31 December 2022) will require Parental or Guardian Permission to take part, and confirmation that they are sufficiently fit and healthy to to take part in the event.

 

Race License. A race license provides you with insurance cover during racing and training with triathlon clubs. They are either available for a year from the governing body Triathlon Scotland, or race by race. Those people without a yearly race license, pay a higher entry fee which effectively provides them with a race day only license. 

Entry Exchanges

We do not offer a facility to exchange entry places prior to the event under any circumstances.  This also applies to people arriving at the event wishing to take another person's place.  Identities are carefully checked at Event Registration and any "substitutes" will be rejected

Refund Policy 

If the event organisers have to cancel the race, for whatever the reason, full refunds will be given (less the Entry Central Processing fee).

Competitors withdrawing within one month from the event date (i.e. from 5 August) will only receive a full/partial refund (less the Entry Central Processing fees) at the discretion of the race organisers, and only if the place can be filled. No refunds will be given after the event Closing Date.
