BEGINNERS

At the Warwickshire Triathlon our “Fun” and “Sprint” distances are very popular with first timers and beginners, with short achievable distances that still offer a challenge.

Our fun & friendly events are open to everyone and an ideal introduction for beginners to the sport of triathlon.

We can offer lots of support and online beginners advice to help make your Triathlon the best it could possibly be for you.

As well as a great atmosphere, you are sure to gain a special sense of achievement as you cross the finish line to receive that all important “finishers” medal and confirmation the end result was worth every bit of hard work!

RELAY RACE

Each member of the relay team completes one of the three disciplines in the triathlon

At registration you will be given an electronic timing chip that must be worn on the ankle and is relayed to the finish line. After completing the swim, the swimmer passes the electronic chip to the cyclist inside the cycle transition area next to where the cycle is racked, the cyclist must not take their cycle off the rack until receiving the electronic chip. The cyclist completes the cycle course and passes the electronic chip over to the runner in the transition area only when the cycle has been placed back on the rack.

The runner completes the run and hands in the electronic chip at the finish line

Relay awards are based on all female and all male teams. All male teams can consist of three men, two men and one women or one man and two women

Can I enter a mixed relay team?

Yes, however, please be aware that the team may not be eligible for a prize should they finish in the top three.

Can my relay team be made up of just two people?

Yes, a relay team can have only two people in it.

Spectators

The course is spectator friendly and all the action can be seen at the rear of the Leisure Centre where the main transition area and finish line are situated.
