Note 1

As part of encouraging new participants into the sport of Triathlon, Oldbury STC encourage those who feel either their swimming or running is currently not up to a suitable level to form a Relay Team with others in a similar position.  Team of two people any combination of adult/adult, child/child or adult/child.  Both competitors compete in their own age category with overall result being determined on age category placement.  If both in same age category then can do standard relay change over at Transition exit. Please note; there is no prize for relay entries.

To enter as a Relay Team enter eldest team competitor as normal, tick the box for Relays to add other team members details.

Need to find a relay partner?  Email the Event Organiser. ()

 

Note 2

This event was originally designed as a "Novice Distance Event" and as such some of the distances are less than in other events.

 

Note 3

Every swimmer must have completed their swim distance 30 seconds before the next swimmer in that lane position starts, if not complete they may be stopped. If we know a swimmer is particularly slow in advance we can cater for this. Max swim times exist unless catered for in advance.
