Organiser's Description

 

Welcome to the Tranent Sprint Triathlon and GOTRI Aquathlon 2019!

 

Hosted by Edinburgh University Triathlon Club, this well established annual race is a favourite of many triathletes. The race is open to everyone: with a pool-based swim, flat fast course and good facilities available it is both an ideal event for beginners and a perfect start of the season for experience triathletes. This year we will also be hosting a new GOTRI Aquathlon, which will be ideal for more nervous beginners. The race will take place at the Tranent Loch Centre, Tranent, East Lothian, EH33 2JX. 

 

GOTRI Aquathlon

This year Tranent will also feature a GOTRI Aquathlon wave, running for people new to the sport and more unsure about doing a full triathlon. It is a great stepping stone to future triathlon endeavors. The race will consist of a 400m pool swim and 2.5km run, in the form of a singular lap around the town of Tranent. The run route will be well signposted with assistance provided by voluntary marshals. After the race, food and drink will be provided.

The run route is:

Run Route (1 lap)

 

Sprint Triathlon

For the Sprint Triathlon, there will be 750m pool-based swim followed by an approximately 20km road bike around the East Lothian countrysid and 5km run taking place in the town of Tranent, following a two-lap format. The bike and run routes will be well signposted with assistance provided by voluntary marshals. After the race, food and drink will be provided.

The race routes are:

Run Route (2 laps)

 

Things to Note

Scottish University students and EUtri alumini should enter their current/old matriculation number in the Student Number field. This is to give you a £5 student discount. Students are required to bring valid student ID to the race, if you do not then you will have to pay the full race amount. 

BTF members will also recieve a £5 discount by entering a valid membership number and bringing their race licence to registration on the day.

Following last years feedback, we've vastly improved the bike route to remove the obstacles and make it more enjoyable for all.
