West Lancashire Summer Triathlon route
THE SWIM – 400M
The 400m swim will be conducted in the 25m pool inside the sports centre and will require the completion of 16 lengths. Start times have been allocated using the estimated swim times submitted on entry (Slowest first). Each swimmer has been allocated a lane and a fixed start time which must be adhered to. Please refer to the start list which will be emailed to you prior to the event and will include your poolside briefing time and your swim start time. Please report to poolside for your poolside briefing time and certainly no less than 20 minutes before your start time. If you miss your allocated starting slot then you will not be able to start and unfortunately it will be race over.
THE BIKE – 18.5k
For the bike section signs will be in place similar to below, these may point left, right or straight on and will be in place before a junction or turn. At specific points on the course marshals will be in place, typically where you join a busy road or an area with reduced visibility. If a marshal tells you to slow or stop you must do so or you will be disqualified, but please be aware marshals cannot legally stop or direct traffic on the public highway in any way.
THE RUN – 5k
The run course is flat and fast and initially covers the incredibly scenic landscaped campus and lakes before following the purpose built running and conditioning trail added to Edge Hill Sport as part of the £25m million new sports centre project. The surface is an even mix of tarmac and gravel with the final 400m to the finish around the new running track. The course will be fully signposted and marshalled with a drinks station that will have water available after approx 2.3k, please ensure you remain hydrated and make use of the drinks stations as required.
