TTC Lakeside Aquathlon

30 Apr 2023

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

The Tyne Triathlon Club Lake Side Aquathlon

An Adult and Junior Grand-Prix Aquathlon event for all ages. A great course for people looking to try out a multi-sport event or seasoned athletes out for a blast !! Making the most of one of North Tyneside's best swimming pools and a run past the picturesque lake and through the wooded area around the Killingworth Lakeside Centre.

Event results will be posted to the Tyne Tri Website.

This is a Regional, Junior Grand Prix, so you can compete with the best in the county or only with yourself and the clock.   

If you’ve never done a multisport event here are some pointers…

  • You start in the pool at the allotted time
  • You swim the right distance
  • You get out of the pool at the shallow end
  • Go and get your trainers on
  • And Run ( the right distance)

Your time is taken from your specified start time to when you finish your run, so getting changed and drying off will cost you dearly.  If you start late or in the wrong position then your time will include this delay.

So… What to wear?  Ideally, a tri suit is the pro-choice (like this) or you can run in a swimsuit and tee shirt or whatever you feel comfortable in running up Great Lime Road on Sunday Morning straight out of the pool!

What you’ll need :

  • Goggles
  • British Triathlon Rules Demand the wearing of a swim hat, please bring your own
  • Swim Suit or Tri Suit
  • A number belt (like this)
  • Trainers

For adult races, trophies are given for first second and third overall male and female.   First place male and female in each age group will receive an appropriate prize.


British Triathlon provides and insists on public liability insurance for all athletes who are competing details of which are here.  This is built into the cost of entry or if you are a BTF member is subtracted from the entry cost.

Swim Times

 Adults are placed in swim time order with the slowest going first to even up the race a bit and slower competitors are not left on the course on their own so much.   When a faster swimmer wants to overtake they'll probably make a move at the end and it's helpful to let them past.

Kids are not placed in any order as they are already pretty well sorted by age group... there is no need to supply kids swim time.


Registration is from 7.15 am and the race briefing is 8:10 am at the lakeside centre main hall.  Here you will receive your number and timing chip.   Any timing chips not returned at the end of the race will incur a £20 replacement charge.





For each sign-up, the organiser pays the Service Fee of 4% (min 50p). You pay no surcharge
