Registration will take place in front of London Fields Lido. Please give yourself plenty of time to register and set up your transition area in order to make the cut off time of 7:30am.
At registration you will be issued with your race number. This MUST BE shown on your front during the run section of the event. It is preferable to wear a race belt. If not the number can be safety pinned to the front of a t-shirt or vest that can be put on in transition. Pins will be supplied on the day if necessary. Your race number will also be written on your left arm for the swim section of the race. Please advise at registration if you are allergic to the pen. Please note that swim hats will not be provided but you are free to wear your own.
Changing facilities will be available at the Lido and lockers are available for valuables. The lockers take £1 coins (which is returned).
There will be a race briefing taking place in front of the registration area. Attendance is compulsory. The Race Briefing will inform you of any last minute route changes and safety points. If you have any questions or queries on race day, please ask them after the Race Briefing.
The swim start will be staggered with swimmers going off in timed intervals based on estimated start times submitted by entrants before the race. Entrants should queue at the side of the pool in number order at least 10 minutes before their start time so that they are ready to enter the pool at their given time. A marshal will be on hand for assistance.
