HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM IN THE RACE?

When you enter through our online system, you will receive an acknowledgement email confirming your entry. You will receive email updates and a link to the race information as race day approaches. Please make sure the details we have for you are correct.

CAN SOMEONE ELSE REGISTER FOR ME?

For our one day events, you have to register yourself in person, and you must show some form of photo identification when you register. However, for the Windsor Triathlon, you must register the day before the race. On this occasion, we allow someone else to register for you, but they must bring a signed letter of authority from you and they must show your race licence (if you have one) and your ID. Your friend must also bring your cycle helmet for checking and your bike for racking.

CAN I WEAR A NUMBER BELT?

Yes, but your number must be clearly visible at all times otherwise you may be subjected to a two-minute penalty as per British Triathlon Rules. You mustn’t fold or cut down your race number in any way. Do write any medical information on the back of your number.

CAN I WEAR MY RACE NUMBERS UNDERNEATH MY WETSUIT?

Yes. The race numbers we supply really are waterproof and tearproof. Take care when you put your wetsuit on over the numbers ~ ask a friend to help you. When you take your wetsuit off, your numbers should remain intact, provided you have pinned them securely in all four corners.

DO I HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF TRIATHLON ENGLAND, TRIATHLON SCOTLAND OR THE WELSH TRIATHLON ASSOCIATION?

No. If you are not a member of the sport’s governing body, you must bring some form of photo ID with you and you will be required to pay a day membership fee at registration.

See British Triathlon’s Website for more information on rules, membership and much, much more. For further information phone British Triathlon on 01509 226161.

YOU’VE GOT MY AGE GROUP WRONG.

Your age group is determined by your age at December 31, and not your age on race day (in accordance with British Triathlon Rules).

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY RACE NUMBERS?

For most of our events, you will only receive your race numbers when you come to registration. We generally do NOT post out race numbers. There are a few exceptions, such as our running and cycling events, where we do post out numbers.

CAN I WEAR HEADPHONES DURING THE RACE?

At triathlon events, British Triathlon Rule Number 8.1 states that “Any equipment that acts as an impediment to hearing or concentration is prohibited from use during an event (including transition). This includes, but is not limited to, mobile telephones (which should be switched off if stored in transition), personal stereos and MP3 players.” At running events, for health and safety reasons Human Race strongly discourages the use of earphones or any device which may prevent you from hearing important instructions both before and during the event. We reserve the right to ask you to remove them at our discretion.

    Hello I'm taking part in the 'First Timer' triathlon on Sunday. My friend will be with me witht he 4 children aged 3 - 6. I would like to arrive about 2 hours before so that I have time to find out where I'm going, what I'm doing etc and to not have a panicked rush. My friend is worried that it's a long time for the children and she wonders if there's things there to keep them entertained. Is there anything? Is it suitable for young children to be hanging around for many hours? Thank you

    Hi there. Thanks for get in touch and it is so exciting that you are taking part in your First Triathlon. I completely understand that you want to arrive in good time. There isn't that much to do at Dorney Lake however you are right next to Windsor where your children can go on a duck tour or go to Legoland. Please follow the tripadvisor link to see what you can do around Windsor - https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g186419-Activities-Windsor_Windsor_and_Maidenhead_Berkshire_England.html. Many thanks! :)

    Do all times get recorded on the website or can you opt out of that? And...do you typically have a lot of beginners at this?

    S

    Steph E
    Hi there. Thanks for getting in touch. Your time will get recorded onto the website and most beginners will be competing on the Sunday. If you do not want your time posted on the website then it is probably best you contact the event organiser to tell them this - [email protected]! :)
