The timetable is to be confirmed in pre-race information but for the triathlon it is likely to start with a number of swim waves commencing from 8/9am.

All event timings will be confirmed in the pre-pre-race information issued to all entrants by email.

There is a limit of 150 participants for each event and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
