Welcome to the Glasgow Triathlon Club's Bishopbriggs Sprint Triathlon.

 

The event will take place at the Bishopbriggs Leisuredrome on Sunday May 5th, 2019. 

 

The Sprint event involves:

  • A 750m (30 lengths) swim in the 6 lane 25m pool. Lane order is sorted based on the estimated swim times submitted by participants. Transition is within the Leisuredrome car park.
  • A 20km cycle on closed roads.  On leaving transition and after a modest initial climb (400m), there is a flat bike loop out into the countryside, returning to transition at the Leisuredrome (4 laps).
  • A 5km run, which is a loop along the picturesque towpath of the Forth and Clyde canal coming back to the Leisuredrome for the finish.

 

On the entry form, you will be asked to provide an estimated swim time. It is not unusual for people competing in a pool-based triathlon for the first time to "guess" their swim time. Please be reassured, we will accept changes to your estimated swim time up until April 29th. Your enjoyment, and that of your fellow competitors is greatly enhanced if you are in the correct swim heat.

 

In the unfortunate event you need to withdraw from the race please let us know at the earliest opportunity since it may be possible to offer the place to another person. Withdrawals up to 30 days prior to the race (April 5th) will receive a 75% refund. No refunds will be provided after April 5th. Entry exchanges and deferrals are not permitted.
