DERBY TRIATHLON is aimed at all levels of fitness and ability, whether its your first triathlon or you are the next Olympic hopeful. Last year we had an increase in first time competitors, with 55% of the field being new to the great fun sport of triathlon.

You can enter as an individual and complete all three disciplines on your own, the relay event with friends or colleagues and enjoy the race as a team or the corporate event where each team member completes the full triathlon.

What’s Included

Registration: Race registration will be in the PMA Marquee next to the Transition area accessed between the football and tennis courts, and will be open from 6:15am onwards on Sunday. Please ensure that you register at least 45 minutes before your allocated start time (after this period your race slot will be issued to the reserve list of competitors).

Course Details

Swim: Competitors should report to the poolside at least 10 minutes before your start time to allow for lane allocation.

Bike: Upon leaving the school grounds (side entrance) turn left through Etwall village (please note pedestrian crossing). As you cycle through Etwall village please ensure that you cycle on the outside of the cones (runners in the event will be inside the cones). At the A516 roundabout take 2nd exit, extreme caution, this will take you down a country lane to a cross roads where you turn left onto Radbourne Lane. Continue down Radbourne Lane until Sutton On the Hill where where you take a right hand turn (landmark: church on right hand side) this will take you through the village and over the A50. At T junction (Hilton) turn left onto A516. You will cycle over three roundabouts back towards Etwall. At Etwall island turn around (caution for oncoming cyclists) and retrace route back along A516. Taking first left back into Etwall village and enter transition area. This will be fully marshalled and sign posted The cycle section is strictly a non-drafting/pacing event and is referred to in the British Triathlon rules which is available on the website www.britishtriathlon.org If a marshal tells you to stop at a junction or slow down leading up to a junction, it is for your safety.

 

Travel

Car Parking: Parking is just off the main Etwall road on the edge of the village. This is a large field which will be sign posted.
There will be very limited parking within the school grounds (with a new one way system in operation) and this will be filled very quickly. Do not park on the main road or in the church car park (next to school) as this will jeopardise the safety of all competitors and road users.

Run: On returning to the transition area cyclist must dismount at the line. You must leave your helmet fastened until your bike has been racked. Then head for the ‘Run Out’ (opposite end to ‘bike in’) entrance and proceed around the perimeter of the grounds past the tennis courts and up the hill through the side path by the church. This brings you out at the front of the school in the village. Turn Left running on the inside of the cones and then take a left hand turn down Sutton Lane. The turning point is about 1 mile down this lane where you will retrace steps back towards the transition area and turn left to Finish. This will be fully marshalled and sign posted.
