Herefordshire Triathlon 2021

04 Jul 2021

Organiser's Description

Herefordshire's traditional super sprint triathlon has been organised by Hereford Triathlon Club for three decades. It's an ideal race for beginners and people who are having a go at triathlon for the first time. In 2021 the race will once again take place at Leominster Leisure Centre.  

We’re determined to do everything that we can to make sure that the race can go ahead safely under the appropriate coronavrius guidelines. Please read these details carefully before entering. 

The event will be held under the guidance of British Triathlon and with the permission of Herefordshire Council, West Mercia Police, Halo Leisure and the Earl Mortimer College. In order to keep the competitors, volunteers, staff and local people safe and reassured, it’s essential for everybody to abide by the necessary rules and guidance. These will be provided in advance of the race.

If the race takes place within 6 weeks of indoor public pools reopening then, under British Triathlon guidance, it will be non competitive. Times will be given but there will not be prizes. 

You will start in waves of 12 swimmers who will be allocated staggered times 15 minutes apart from 0900  through to 1030 and then from 1130 to 1245. The start times will be arranged according to your estimated swim speed and the start list will be published in the week before the race. There will be a gap of an hour to allow for a deep clean of the facilities and to make sure social distancing is maintained in the transition area. 

We can guarantee you a beautiful course through the Herefordshire countryside, friendly marshals, a simple well-marked route, chip timing and lots of vocal support. 

The race is organised by the members of Hereford Triathlon Club and we aim to make it as relaxed and friendly as possible.  Any money that we make gets used to help the club run throughout the year.

You'll start by swimming 400 metres in the indoor pool before heading to transition next door at the Earl Mortimer College.

The 12 mile bike course is undulating but fast and you'll head out of town and towards Bromyard on the A44, turning around at the King's Head Pub in the village of Docklow.

Back to the school and the 3 mile run takes you around the town of Leominster including some of the historic sites before finishing at the school.

An ideal race for beginners, novices and those wanting a super fast sprint.

We're also offering an Aqua Bike race.  You'll compete the swim and bike sections and your finishing time will be taken as you cross back into transition after your bike. 

 

IMPORTANT INFO

If you find that you can't enter the race or the race has to be called off due to the pandemic or extreme weather, we will be able to refund you as much of your entry fee as we can but, due to the pandemic, we cannot guarantee a full refund. The cancellation of both our 2020 events and the full refunds given to all competitors cost our club thousands of pounds. We cannot afford to lose that much money again. 

We guarantee you that we will not profit should the race not be able to take place but we may have incurred non-refundable costs for equipment, venue hire etc. It is not possible to insure ourselves against the pandemic without substantially increasing the entry fees. 

We strongly advise you to take out personal insurance either through entry central or a separate broker which will provide you with full race cover. 

If you contact us less than 28 days before the race we may, in extreme circumstances, be able to transfer your race entry to the following year.  We are unable to offer a transfer in the 10 days before the race. 

Competitors are not permitted to sell or transfer their entry to another person. Should you be unable to race and wish to transfer your entry we are able to do this on your behalf as long as you contact us by email by June 26th.

The race is taking place at Leominster Leisure Centre - please make sure that you go to the right place.

Entries to the race close a week before - on June 26th - so please make sure you don't leave it too late to enter.

A list of start times will be on the club's website in the days before the event.

The start times are organised by your estimated swim time so please understand that you may not be starting close to your friends if you have different swim times.

PLEASE NOTE - THE LAST DAY FOR ENTRIES ONLINE IS JUNE 26Th AND THERE ARE NO ENTRIES ON THE DAY

Thanks and good luck
