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 and their helmet has been fully removed.
The runner completes the run and hands in the electronic chip at the finish line.

Did the race in 2022
The organisation could have been better - no disabled parking for spectators, the bike marshals kept asking if it was your last lap and trying to usher you in when it wasn’t (some could have cheated, and for others it’s confusing), pool timings didn’t run as planned which was also a little confusing and people were stuck behind others

The Marshalls were absolutely amazing. They kept me and others going all race. Especially the Marshall on the top roundabout and the two ladies on the run.

My first Triathlon. I've completed many cycle events and this event was very well organised and a great intro in to Triathlon. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the encouragement from the crowd. Great day.
