I am worried about swimming in the river...
The Loddon moves very slowly and there is next to no current. The SES patrol the swim leg and there will also be two kayaks on the water if you get into trouble. If you are new to triathlons, hang out at the back of the pack that way you won't get overwhelmed by other swimmers.
Can I wear a wet suit?
Yes! But the water is usually quite nice at this time of year if you are worried about getting cold.
I don't have a road bike.
No problem, any bike will do.
Do I need to wear a helmet?
Yes, a helmet must be worn before mounting and dismounting your bike.
How does a team work?
If you are in a team the other members have to wait in the designated areas for the transition between each leg. You can have a team of two or three.
If I ordered merchandise when do I receive it?
Just head to the merchandise tent on the day.
How long before my race do I need to arrive?
Please sign in 45minutes before your race and head to the start line 10minutes prior to the race start for a race briefing.
