Access to the sports centre is from The Old Hall School car park. There is plenty of free car parking here.
There are changing rooms and showers inside the sports centre. Changing for all competitors will be on the ‘dry side’ (and not the swimming pool changing rooms) – these will be clearly marked within the centre. There are toilets within the changing room area, within the swimming pool area and on the upper floor of the sports centre.
REGISTRATION & TRANSITION
Registration and transition will open at midday and will stay open until 12.45pm. All competitors must register on arrival. Registration is located inside the sports centre – it will be signed from the main entrance. Here your start time will be confirmed and you will be issued with your race number. Body marking will be done at Registration; BTF members will need to show their race licence (or pay the additional £1). Non-BTF members will be given a day member’s licence (cost is included within the entry fee). If you are currently taking any medication or suffer from a specific medical condition (e.g. drug allergy) please inform us at registration and also write details clearly on the back of your race number. The run course will also be open for warm up and familiarisation purposes during this time.
Race briefing will occur at 1pm in the same location as registration – the sports hall. All competitors and parents should attend. The race will commence with the Novice and TSS categories once briefing has finished.
We hope to get the racing started shortly after the race brief. We will be setting off the competitors in waves, based on submitted swim times. The race start times below are approximate and may be changed, depending upon entries. More accurate start times will be given at registration.
