RACE BRIEFING – 7.40am - The race briefing will take place in front of the registration area. Attendance is compulsory. The Race Briefing will inform you of any last minute route changes and safety points. If you have any questions or queries on race day, please ask them after the Race Briefing.
RACE START – 8am - The swim start will be staggered with swimmers going off every 30 seconds. The start will be based on estimated start times submitted by entrants before the race. Entrants should queue at the side of the pool in number order at least 10 minutes before their start time so that they are ready to enter the pool at their given time (to be provided at registration). A marshall will be on hand for assistance. Late entry into the pool may result in a time penalty.
THE SWIM - Swimmers will start in lane one and swim up one side and back down the other and continue until they have completed enough lengths for their race. After the set number of lengths they will leave the pool and head into transition. When overtaking other competitors please be careful to avoid any potential collisions with oncoming competitors!
TRANSITION AREA - You will be required to set up your transition area prior to the event starting. The transition area will close at 7.30am. Your transition area will be marked with your race number. The transition area will be situated on the grass area to the exit of the Lido. Please note there is no running in transitions. Failure to comply will result in a time penalty.
THE RUN - The run course is around London Fields. Please ensure you stay alert to pedestrians, cyclists and dogs that may be in the park during the event. Please inform a Marshall if you fail to complete the run section of the event. We want to ensure all competitors return safely. The run route is primarily on pavements, however short sections may involve running on grass. Please wear appropriate footwear to weather conditions on the day.
