FAQs – Sprint

When do entries close?
Entries close at 18:00 on Sunday 18th June 2017. However, they could close sooner should the event sell out.
Where can I find a start list?
We will publish a start list on the event page of our website shortly after entries have closed.
When do I get the race info pack?
The race info pack will be emailed to all competitors soon after entries close, either the Sunday or following Monday.
I can no longer race and need to withdraw, what should I do?
Ok, this is fine but you need to follow the withdrawal policy. You’ll receive race credit; the value will depend on when you withdraw in relation to the event date.
When do I need to register and rack?
Registration will be between 06:30 – 07:30, transition will be open for 06:30 – 07:45 for racking. The race brief will be at 07:45. Race start is 08:00.
Where can I find maps?
Check out the swim map, the bike map, you’ll do 2 laps, and the run map, again this is 2 laps.  You can export these maps to your GPS device using the export link in the route info box.
What is the profile of the course?
Click on the above link to the map. Underneath the map you’ll see the profile of the route.
What is the lake temperature and do I need a wetsuit?
In previous years the temperature has meant that wetsuits have been optional. BUT that is no guarantee this will be the case this year. Like us on Facebook as we’ll post updates on there closer to the event with the water temperature.
Can I wear gloves / boots in the swim?
The race is run under BTF rules – Thermal gloves and boots are not permitted unless an exception request has been applied for. A medical note stating the reason must be submitted to us and the Technical Official on the day of the event.
Is it possible to swim in the lake ahead of the race?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. The lake does not permit swimming outside of the organised event.
Will it be a mass start or swim waves?
This event will be a mass start but the lake is big enough to accommodate a mass start without people being swam over – just position yourself where you feel comfy
Are there any cut offs?
No, we aim to make this event fun and friendly for all. There is no time pressure.
Do I get a medal?
Previously we have asked entrants whether they would prefer a medal / t-shirt or cheaper race entry, the majority opted for cheaper entry. In order to keep the race as accessible to all there is no medal / t-shirt.
Where can I find the results?
You can print out your result at the end of the event, look out for the Jaguar Timing tent. All results will be emailed to you as soon as we have them from the chip timing company and they will be loaded onto our website in due course.
Where are the official event photos?
Ian-Green Photography is our event photographer. All photos will be loaded to Flickr shortly after the event. Like us on Facebook as we’ll post an update on there once the photos are live.
