London Fields Senior Aquathlon (London League) route
400m (8 lengths)
This heated outdoor pool is the perfect place for newcomers to dip their toes into multi-sport events, or for seasoned aquathlon vets to get some serious speed. The swim will be 8 lengths of the outdoor heated pool. 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. After 400m (8 lengths) they will leave the pool and head into transition. Tumble turns are permitted, however care must be exercised at all times.
Swim start times will be based on the estimated times submitted by competitors so please be sure to submit your time as accurately as possible. Occasionally overtaking might be 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 competitor who runs in the pool area may be given a time penalty.
You will be required to set up your transition area prior to the event starting. The transition area will be open from 7:00am and will close at 7:55am. The transition area will be situated on the grass area adjacent to the exit of the Lido. The beginning of transition is marked with a “Transition In” sign and you can run once you exit transition by crossing the timing mat.
You will be allowed to return to transition to collect belongings when you have finished your race after the last competitor has exited transition to commence the run.
5km (5 laps)
The run course of the London Fields Aquathlon will be a fast and flat 5K around the scenic park. It will be 5 laps of the 1km course, and it is your responsibility to run the correct number of laps. The course will be a mixture of pavement and grass, so please ensure you have the correct footwear to match the weather on the day.
There will be a timing mat to record the time of each lap undertaken.
