Edinburgh#3 Youth/Adult/Novice Adult Aquathon 2022

24 Apr 2022

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Welcome to the sign up page for the 2022 Edinburgh#3 Youth/Adult/Novice Adult Aquathon to be held in the grounds of Forrester High School, Edinburgh on Sunday 24th April.

Edinburgh#3 Triathlon Club is proud to be one of Scotland's leading clubs, promoting participation and coaching opportunities for children and youths. We also provide coaching for adults at the same time so whole families can enjoy the sport together.

We are delighted to announce that 100% of entry fees for our Aquathon event this year will be donated to Dnipro Kids Appeal (https://dniprokids.com/) so please come and join us so we can increase our donation to this very worthy cause.

There will be a couple of changes to previous years to our event. In order to keep us all safe, we have opted to send out a briefing video nearer the event date and this will inform you of course layout, what you can expect on the course and what we expect from you as a competitor. We also intend to allocate each participant with a time slot to turn up. This time slot will allow you sufficient time to set up transition then make your way to the pool area, 15 minutes prior to your swim start time. You will complete your set distances on the swim/run and we will give out prizes for your particular age group straight after. We figure this is the best way of minimising risk to all and we hope you'll support us on this.

One last change to our event this year is the addition of the "Aquathon First-timers" category. This event is aimed at people who have never completed a multisport event before and maybe don't even think they could manage it. You'll get free coached sessions every Saturday afternoon, 2.30-4.30pm included in your entry fee for the 8 weeks leading up to the event. Come and join us!

Timings will be issued closer to the event date but, for now, be aware we expect the whole event/all age groups to run from 9am-1pm.

The Aquathon consists of a pool swim followed by a run (distances according to age as indicated in the table below).  The race is open to beginners and experienced competitors, members and non-members of Triathlon Scotland.

Please be as accurate as possible with your estimated swim time to ensure a clear swim for yourself and others.  If you do find your swim time is not accurate, please inform us by the 20th April and we will update your time.

"What's My Time?" will cover all our race timings and you will be issued your electronic timing chip at poolside prior to you starting your swim. This chip will time your start/transition/finish time and will also allow you to print out your results at the end of your race.

Entry Fee: £11 for TS members and £12 for non-members and 100% of your entry fee will go to the Dnipro Kids Appeal.

By completing an entry you are acknowledging you are the recognised parent/guardian for the child you are entering, you are granting them permission to take part and declaring they are sufficiently fit and healthy to do so.

This race forms part of Triathlon Scotland’s 2022 National Triathlon Series. In order to place in the series you must be a Core or Ultimate member of Triathlon Scotland on the day of the race.
