FAQs

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.

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. You are recommended to familiarise yourself with British Triathlon’s rules and regulations that will be applied to this race, otherwise you may be penalised for breaking any rule. 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.

 

 

WHAT IS THE ENTRY PROCESS?

The system is built around setting up an entrant profile. You will be prompted to enter your email address and a password at the start of the process. The system will then store your details for future purchases.
