Warrington Tri Junior Aquathlon 2017
30 Apr 17
This event is part of the 2017 North West Junior Series and will be governed by British Triathlon rules.
This year's event is the second time our Junior Aquathlon will be held at Edge Hill University. This is a fantastic venue and the only junior series race to be held there. The event will again be chip timed by "Whats my Time", and they offer print outs of results immediately after each wave/age group is completed, and will also display wave results at the venue. A big plus for the competitors.
Our aquathlon is always a very popular race of the Junior Series calendar and is again taking place on the afternoon of the first Bank Holiday weekend of the year (Sunday 30th April), so we can expect blue skies and soaring temperatures! First swim wave will be 2pm.
PLEASE NOTE: The wave information will NOT be available until a day or so before the event so please don't contact us for specific timings, as we will not know final entry numbers and age group splits until entry closes in late April.
Race information will be sent out by email shortly after entry closes and wave info will follow on at least 24 hours before the event. It will also be displayed on the Warrington Triathlon Club website in due course (www.warringtontriathlonclub.co.uk) and at the race registration.
As a guide, the first wave will start just after 2pm with the Tristar Starts. Waves follow in age group order, with the Youth, Junior races later. Clearly wave times will be dependant on numbers by age group. The last swim wave should be over by 5pm.
The swim is held in the 25m indoor, 6 lane heated swimming pool and the run takes place on the adjacent "trim trail", finishing on the athletics track, all within the complex grounds. There will be plenty of vantage points for spectators.
