London Fields Junior Aquathlon (London League) routes

The Swim

There are four lanes and the pool is 50m long. Swimmers will start in lane one (as indicated by the marshal on the day) and swim up one side of the lane and back down the other. They will then dip under the lane rope into lane two, and so on until they have completed the required length of swim. After the participant has completed their swim they will leave the pool and head into transition. Tumble turns are permitted, however care must be exercised at all times.

Swim start times are based on the estimated times submitted by competitors. Occasionally people under or over estimate their time and therefore overtaking is required. If you wish to overtake the person in front please tap their feet and overtake at the end of the length. If you are tapped on the feet by a faster swimmer please let them through at the end of your length.

There is NO RUNNING IN THE POOL AREA OR TRANSITION — once out of the pool competitors must walk to the transition area. Anyone who runs in the pool area may be given a time penalty.

The Run

The run course is around London Fields as shown on the plan to the right. There will be a short course of approximately 500m (red and blue lines) and a longer course of 1,000m (red line). You will be informed of how many laps and on which course you are expected to do at registration.

It is your responsibility to ensure you do the correct number of laps and the correct type of lap (big and small laps).

To assist participants we will provide a number of bands (to discard on each lap at a marked point before the finishers tunnel) on pool side corresponding to the number of laps required however it is still your responsibility to ensure you run the correct number. We have also got two colours of bibs to correspond with whether you are doing small or big laps of London Fields.

There will be a timing mat to record the time of each lap undertaken.

Please ensure you stay alert to pedestrians, cyclists and dogs that may be in the park during the event. Please inform a marshal if you fail to complete the run section of the event. We want to ensure all competitors return safely. The run route has a mixture of pavement and grass sections. Please wear appropriate footwear to match weather conditions on the day.

Race Photography
Please note that there will be an event photographer taking photos on the event. We have the right to use images, photographs and video taken by our contracted photographers without informing the participant. These images will only be used for the purposes of promoting, reporting and broadcasting the event, and any other promotion related to the activities of the club.

Any individual who does not wish to have their image used for these purposes must inform us via email no later than 48 hours prior to the event. Notification closer to, or after the event can be made and we will use our best endeavours to prevent images of that individual being used but cannot guarantee it.

British Triathlon Federation (BTF) require any person taking pictures at a junior event to have given their name and address at registration. Once your parents/friends have given their details they will be given a sticker to show they have complied with the BTF requirements. This also goes for cameraphones as well. Anyone who is taking photos at the event without this tag will be asked to register their details.

If the marshals see anyone taking pictures who are not displaying a sticker, they will be asked to register as above. This is something we are required to do by the BTF.
