Oldbury White Horse Sprint Aquabike
The swim will take place in the swimming pool of Calne Leisure Centre. This will be 16 lengths of a 25-metre pool. You will start and finish at the shallow end, where you will exit through the door on the far side. Transition will be located on the playing fields just outside; you will have approximately 150 metres to your bike. The cycle route is an out and back 20km route which takes a steady climb out past Oldbury (Cherhill) White Horse with some fantastic scenery. You will come back into transition where you can quick change your shoes and drop your bike off, before heading on a grass run to the finish line.Smart Start SystemAfter a successful trial of this system in the 2016 event, we have continued to use this system ever since. The Smart Start System works by adding a swimmer into the lane every 3 minutes, depending on your swim speed. This prevents congestion and also allows you to have a better swim as those in front of you have settled into their pace so there is no scrapping for the lead.
