Late season sprint triathlon. The event starts with 16 lengths in the Bungay pool followed by a scenic bike course through the Waveney Valley, returning to the pool after 20km. The run is a short 3.2km out-and-back course. This well-supported event is perfect for a last race of the season for beginners and experienced competitors alike.

Autumn Waveney Super Sprint Triathlon route
Swim 400 metres (16 lengths): Competitors will be started in groups of 5, at 5 minute intervals at the deep end of the pool. Your start time will be confirmed at registration, and a printout of the start list will also be placed in the pool window. Please wear the provided swim hat at all times. Competitors may stand or rest on the bottom but may not gain unfair advantage or make progress, other than is deemed necessary to execute the start of the swim. Any recognised stroke is permitted. When a competitor has completed 14 lengths of the pool a sign with a large 2 on it will be placed in the water in their lane - they will then have two more lengths to swim. However, ultimate responsibility for counting the number of lengths rests with the competitor. Please take care when exiting the pool, it may be slippery.
Cycle 20 Kilometres: (route guide supplied below) The cycle course is undulating, with approximately 50 per cent on fast main roads and 50 per cent on small technical country roads. Virtually all of the cycle route is left handed turns, except one turn which is a right turn (please check map for details). Every competitor must ensure that his/her machine is in a safe and roadworthy condition. Competitors must wear their race numbers provided at all times throughout the cycling section of the event and in such a way that it is clearly visible from behind and/or from the side. (Number belts will be allowed, but the number must be on the back for the bike and on the front for the run). Cycle helmets approved by the BSI, ANSI, Snell or equivalent standards authorities must be worn by competitors. These must be fastened before mounting the cycle, worn at all times during the cycling section of the event, and not unfastened until the cycle has been returned to its original position.
Any assistance other than that provided by the organisers will result in a penalty. Competitors are NOT ALLOWED TO DRAFT! The cycle draft zone is defined as a rectangle surrounding every competitor that is 3 metres wide and extends 10 metres behind the front wheel of a competitor’s cycle.
All competitors must follow the normal rules of the road, obey all traffic signals and must follow any directions given by the police, race marshals or officials. Any infringement of the law and subsequent legal action is the sole responsibility of the competitor.
Run 3.2 Kilometres: (route guide supplied below) The run course has a couple of reasonably testing hills in it! No form of locomotion other than running or walking is permitted. No individual support vehicles, cyclists or escort runners are allowed. The competitor's race number must be securely fixed and clearly visible from the front at all times.
Competitors must follow the directions and instructions of all race officials. If any competitor wishes to read any particular rule(s), then a BTA handbook will be available on the day of the race. Please see the race organiser or one of the race officials if you require it.
Each competitor should choose a space in the Transition area - spaces are not pre-allocated at this event. Please find yourself a slot as soon as possible, and set up with consideration for neighbouring competitors. Transition will close just before the race starts, after which competitors should not enter the area until they are racing. Only competitors will be allowed in transition area at all times. Transition will be re-opened on the race organiser's instruction; competitors need to show their race number and matching bike label in order to remove their bike. This is for the security of your own equipment!
The transition from swim to cycle is straight out of the pool at the deep end, through the exit door and into transition area. Matting will be laid on the floor. Run/walk with your bike through the cycle exit only, mounting at the mount/dismount line (clearly marked) and not before. When coming in from the cycle leg, dismount at the mount/dismount line before entering Transition area, re-rack your bike and then exit through the separate run exit (clearly marked). Please check the transition area before the start of the race to familiarise yourself with exits and directions. They will be clearly signed, and marshals will be in attendance if you need help.
