Chip timed results
Unique themed medal
Free official event photos

Due to current restrictions all event staff and volunteers will need to complete a BTF Pre-Health Questionnaire. This also applies to Spectators and competitors. For this reason we are discouraging spectators from attending the event. If you would like more info on this event please use the email address below:
Event Chip Timing will record your times. Results will be live at www.eventchiptiming.co.uk throughout and after the race.
SWIM: PLEASE NOTE: For the September 2020 event the swim will only be 1 lap for each distance. All swim events will take the style of a time trial with athletes started at 20 second intervals with the fastest athletes starting the swim first. This is based on the estimated finish time given at the checkout when entering.
BIKE: The 5km bike loop will be completed 4 times for sprint distance athletes and 8 times for standard distance athletes. It is your responsibility to count your own laps. We find the best way of doing this is with the aid of a bike computer or watch.
RUN: Starting from the transition area, triathletes will run either 1 or two out and back loops, alongside the lake. The course is on pavements and is completely flat. There will be 1 drinks station on the course, manned by marshals serving water in plastic cups. This is the only drinks station and you will pass it on each lap.
Other Race Information
It is a statutory requirement that every competitor completes a BTF Pre-Event Health Questionnaire no more than 14 days before the start of the event.
