Entry will be via the EntryCentral website and a waiting list will commence once the race is full. Withdrawals will be replaced from those on the waiting list until 7 days before the event, thereafter there will be no movement, as this allows the swim heats to be drawn up. There will be no entry on the day so please do not turn up unless you have a confirmed space.
No timer chips will be used for this year's event in order to try and reduce costs. No splits will be provided, only an overall time.
Before the event starts your bike must be placed in the transition area rack allocated to your race number. Any clothing you require during the event should be left beside your bike.
There is no entry to the transition area after the race briefing starts. Transition will remain closed throughout the duration of the race. This means you will be unable to remove your bike/belongings after your race until all other competitors have completed their race. This rule is to ensure that all competitors get a fair race.
HEATS AND LANE ALLOCATION
Heats and lanes are allocated according to the time predicted on your entry form. It is vital to the smooth running of the event and to be fair to others that you predict your swim time accurately.
It is compulsory to wear a correctly adjusted cycle helmet.
The route is on public roads. Cyclists should take care at all times and must obey the Highway Code including traffic signs and police directions. Marshals at junctions can give directions only and cannot control / direct traffic.
No cycling in the transition area – mount after leaving - dismount before re-entering. Your bike must be re-racked correctly.
There is ample parking in the public car park outside the Pool and surrounding area
Changing and shower facilities are available free to competitors in the swimming pool.
In accordance with Triathlon Scotland Rules and Regulations please pay close attention to the revised cycle and run distances which are the recommended distances for a Supersprint Event.
