London Fields Senior Aquathlon (London League) route
400m (8 lengths)
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. 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 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 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 6.45am and will close at 7.40am. The transition area will be situated on the grass area adjacent to the exit of the Lido. You are not allow to run in the transition area. 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.
