Event summary
Here are the distances available for Capernwray Midweek Series - September
Sprint Triathlon
Route information
What makes this event so nice is the swim in the cool ,clear waters of the flooded quarry that is Capenwray. Follow this with an undulating bike route that loops through lanes of Lancashire, then an out and back run along the Lancaster canal tow path and you'll see why this is such a popular mid week event.
SWIM 500m
Deep water swim starts allows you time to acclimatise and position yourself according
to your ability. Please note the turn buoys do get congested. If you experience any problems to alert a member of the safety team float on your back and wave your arms. Please note the water temperature prior to entry and swim socks and gloves are permitted. Wetsuit hire is also possible.
There is a 25m run to the transition area, please
be careful running barefoot.
BIKE 10 miles
For the bike section signs will be in place similar to those pictured right. After leaving transition push your bike to the mount line, which is at the entrance to the Dive Centre. There may be traffic from the right or left, so listen to the directions of the marshal. When clear mount your bike, moving onto the left hand side of the road. If you experience any mechanical issues on the bike alert another event participant who will then alert the next marshal they come into contact with. They in turn will then contact the sweep vehicle who will attend. Please stay on the course.
RUN 5km
For the run section signs will be in place similar to those pictured below. There are no drink
stations on the run course, so please ensure you carry sufficient provision or you are suitably
hydrated before you commence the run. Please be careful when crossing the road outside transition area. The majority of this course is on the canal path so traffic free but can be slippery under foot if it has been raining
You are reminded that the cycle section is on open roads, so please ensure that you observe the rules of the road at all times and follow the Highway Code. Any reported infringements, such as crossing white centre lines, or failing to take due care will result in a DQ. It is also illegal and may result in a prosecution by the police. Please recognise that Race Marshals are not permitted under British law to stop the traffic and will not do so under any circumstances. Marshals are there to give direction only. Competitors are responsible for making their own decisions as to whether it is safe to proceed or not. If in doubt competitors should stop! You must take the utmost care at junctions and should note in the course details that you do not have right of way at a number of sections, check that the junction is clear before continuing. You must obey the Highway Code, which is also the Law.
This race is a non-drafting race for all categories meaning competitors are not allowed to take
shelter behind or beside another competitor or motor vehicle during the cycling segment of the race.
The draft zone is a rectangle measuring ten metres long by three metres wide, which surrounds every cycle on the cycle course (approximately the size of an estate car). The front edge of the front wheel defines the centre and top edge of the rectangle. A competitor may enter the draft zone of another competitor, but must be seen to be progressing through that zone.
A maximum of 20 seconds is allowed to progress though the draft zone of another competitor. If an overtaking manoeuvre is not completed within 20 seconds, the overtaking cyclist must drop back. Time penalties and DQs will be issued by the referee for infringements. Under new guidelines it is not required for the referee to inform you until the event is completed.
