Can I use any stroke for the swim?
For your safety and the safety of other competitors back stroke, tumble turns and diving are not permitted

Can I use a mountain bike?
Yes, any bike can be used but it must be road worthy.

Will triathlon and road bikes make a difference?
They can make a difference but not a huge amount. Road tyres are smoother and provide less resistance and aero bars put you in a more aerodynamic position on your bike.

Will there be any water available during the run?
Yes, there will be one or more feed stations around the course serving both water and High5.

  • Did the Sprint in 2019

    This was my first triathlon and, at the age of 65, I was a little nervous as to how it would go. I have only just got near to the end of a 'couch to 5k' running programme having suffered a 'neck of femur' break of my right leg at the end of 2016.
    The swimming was the most challenging because of the number of people in the pool. Transitions went well. It will be interesting to see the results when they are published in the middle of this week.
    It has 'fired me up' to do another triathlon in the next month or so. I will probably look for an 'open water' event!
  • Did the Super Sprint in 2019

    shame about the timing problems, will be back next year,hopefu;;y the sprint
