Stirling Adult and Student Aquathlon 2019

 

Age Group Swim Run
17+ 750m 5.0k

 

See http://stirlingtriathlon.com/stirling-aquathlon/ for detailed race route maps.

Adults and Students will race over 750m in the Scottish Swimming Academy pool followed by 2 clockwise laps of Airthrey Loch to make up the 5k run distance. Anyone over the age of 17 is classed as an adult.
The course will encounter a road crossing after leaving the pool hall and via a zebra crossing which will be heavily marshalled for safety. To increase safety and add fairness to all taking part, a “Time Neutral” zone will be introduced between the post swim timing mat and the T1 entry timing mat. It will not be permitted for athletes to use this zone for anything other than to safely negotiate the road crossing.

Adult prizes awarded are 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall in both male and female categories, and 1st, 2nd and 3rd in both the male and female categories of the follow age groups:
Junior, Senior, Veteran, Super Veteran & Vintage.

The student race will have a seperate prize giving - this is a championship race and only open to currently registered students.

The Junior Aquathlon is open to competitors aged from 8 to 16 (based on competitor’s age at end of this year) inclusive. When entering, please select the correct event for the competing age group.
The course will encounter a road crossing after leaving the pool hall and via a zebra crossing which will be heavily marshalled for safety. To increase safety and add fairness to all taking part, a “Time Neutral” zone will be introduced between the post swim timing mat and the T1 entry timing mat. It will not be permitted for athletes to use this zone for anything other than to safely negotiate the road crossing.
The run route will be an out and back style run on the path(s) surrounding Airthrey Loch, except those competing in the 13-14 & 15-16 who shall complete 1 clockwise lap of the Loch.
Triathlon age groups are based on age at end of the year. For example, if your 11th birthday is coming up this November then you’ll race in the 11-12 age group, even though you’ll only be 10 on the day of the race. This ensures that you race against the same people all year through.
Junior prizes awarded are 1st, 2nd and 3rd for boys and girls in all age categories.
