Entries

Entries cost £7.50 via the British Triathlon website.

Competitors can enter as individuals and will be placed by the race organisers into a team or they can enter as a team.

It is a mixed team event, for teams of 3 to 5 competitors. The overall team score will be calculated from the average of the ranking position within each category. If you know who is going to be in your team please email the names of all the team members to the following email address once you have all entered the event online: aquathlon2017@cambridgetriathlonclub.com

Teams can be from 3 to 5 people from the above categories, but for each team to qualify it must have a minimum of one entrant from the Tristar/Youth category and one entrant from the Senior/Vet/Super Vet Category. This ensures that the principle of a scoring team comprising one under 16 and one over 18 is upheld. Teams can only be made up from members from the same Club.

Novices are encouraged to race but will not be part of a team. They will be placed in one of 3 novice age categories races with separate prizes.

A Novice is defined as anyone having competed in less than 3 mulitsport events who doesn’t want to enter one of the main age categories (if you have competed in less than 3 multisport events you can still enter the main categories if you’d prefer).

Course

The swim is a wave swim in the school pool, followed by a flat grass run on the school playing fields.
