Here are the distances available for Autumn Waveney Super Sprint Triathlon
£42 - £47
Swim 400m (16 lengths)
To start the event, competitors will complete 16 lengths of the pool. At length 14 a sign with a large 2 on it will be placed in the water in their lane to indicate the last two lengths.
All recognised strokes are permitted, and participants are asked to take care when exiting the pool as it can be slippery.
An undulating route, taking riders over approximately 50% fast main roads, and 50% small technical country lanes, riders will enjoy a taste of it all.
Almost all the turns are left-turns, ensuring a smooth ride all the way around. 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.
The final leg of the triathlon is host to some testing hills, but its nothing anyone can't handle.

How to get there
Waveney Valley Leisure Centre, St John's Hill, Bungay NR35 1PH, UKGet full directions
This is at Waveney Valley Pool. Parking space will be VERY limited on the day, so it may be necessary to park outside the pool complex.
It is better to park on the grass verges on St John's Road at the front as the parking is so limited at the leisure centre.
From Norwich – take the B1332 towards Bungay and Halesworth. Carry on straight through Bungay town centre heading out towards Halesworth on the A144. As you leave Bungay town you will see Waveney Valley Pool on your right.
From Ipswich – turn off the A12 heading towards Bramfield and Halesworth. Go through Halesworth, taking signposts towards Bungay (A144). Once out of Halesworth town centre, it’s a straight road to Bungay. Just before you reach Bungay town centre you will see Waveney Valley Pool on your left.
From Cambridge – passing Bury St. Edmunds take the A143 towards Diss. Once Diss has been by-passed head towards Bungay and Beccles. Near Bungay, turn right at a roundabout (A144) heading towards Halesworth. As you are leaving Bungay on the A144 Waveney Valley Pool will be on your right.
Event day logistics
06:30 Registration opens
08:30 First wave starts
Entrants will be set off in waves of 5 every 5 minutes. Your start time will be confirmed at registration, and a printout of the start list will also be placed in the pool window.
At registration, you will be given two copies of your race number (one to put on your back for the bike and front for the run – number-belt users know how that’s different for them), two numbered stickers (one for your helmet, one for your bike) and a swim hat. The colour of your swim hat indicates the relative wave you are in. Your wave will all swim in the same hat-colour.
Drafting is strictly prohibited at the event. 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 will choose their space in the Transition area before the event. They will not be pre-allocated by the organiser. 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, and competitors will no longer be able to enter transition until they are racing.
The first transition is straight outside the door from the deep-end of the pool. 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.
There are three lanes at the exit of transition. Bike out, bike in & run out. The organiser will attempt to mark these lanes with small training cones – please respect them. Looking out of transition past the pool entrance, the run out lane is the left-most lane - it’s only narrow. To the right of that is the bike out lane. The organisers are trying to reduce the risk of contact between these two lanes when flying mounts go wrong. Please keep your bike within this lane. On the way back on the bike, keep to the left of the cones as you re-enter the transition area.
For the run, leave transition as above and then keep to the left lane going down the hill. Within that lane, keep to the right to allow competitors heading to the finish to keep to the right-hand kerb. On your way out go the long way round the cone at the bottom of the hill; so the cone is on your left. On the way back, again, the cone is on your left – this avoids collisions between runners.
Dismounting your bike
Bikes need to keep to the central railings to stay away from the runners. Bike in just keep to the left of the railings again and avoid crossing the centre line after the dismount line.
Keeping hold of your race number
Competitors need to show their race number and matching bike label in order to remove their bike to ensure the safety of competitors equipment. Ensure that you have your number with you throughout the event.
