Parking is at Kronospan Ltd, LL14 5NT, it is across the B5070 from the Leisure Centre on Chapel Lane, please do not try to park at the leisure centre as you will affect competitors. There will be marshals helping you to park, ensure you follow instructions. Collect all your belongings and proceed across the B5070 onto Chapel Lane, registration is reached via the rear of the Library on Chapel Lane, it will be signposted.
At registration BTF Members will be issued with a £3 refund on production of a valid Home Nation membership card, no card, no refund. You will then be issued with a race number, a matching timing chip (which should be attached to your left ankle) and your bike stickers. Please affix the stickers to your bike and helmet before entering transition.
Once you have registered you should immediately take your equipment to transition and find your allocated number. Numbers 1 - 250 should rack as numbered, numbers 251 - 500 should rack on numbers 1 - 250. Once you are happy with your equipment, proceed to the poolside and join the swim queue. Swimmers will be taken 4 at a time and started at 3 min intervals in the order that they arrive.
The transition area will be secure and only triathletes with a valid race number be allowed into the transition area in addition to marshals. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please ensure your helmet is on and fastened before entering transition. This will be checked by marshals along with ensuring your bar ends are plugged/taped.
The transition area will be busy, so please limit the amount of equipment, clothing, etc. you bring in with you to just what you'll need when actually racing. Please don't bring huge bags or boxes of spare equipment, track pumps, food, clothes, etc. as they will only get in your and everyone else's way. Note that transition will be "live" as soon as the first competitors start, so there will be competitors racing in and out during the day; please be aware of this and don't get in the way. Listen to the marshals who will be trying to ensure that everything runs smoothly! Your bike number must match your race number. No bike will be allowed out of transition without a valid race number so please ensure you have this with you when you collect your bike.
It is vital early starters remove bikes as soon as possible once finished to allow later starters to rack in vacant spots. Numbers 251 – 500 will be asked to rack at number 1 – 250. Please do not take any bikes into the Leisure Centre! You must go around the outside of the building with your bike.
