Event Briefing Details


Please arrive 15 – 30 minutes before your wave start time. This should give you ample time to familiarise yourself with transition, warm up, discuss any queries you may have with the team and use the facilities if necessary. Waves start at 09:00.  Start lists will be posted on this page with your number and official start time the day before the event take place.

Car Parking

There is ample parking at UCLAN so no worries in this department. Drive in and look out for our registration van.  We promise you wont miss us.


Registration will open around 45 minutes before your wave start time. you will be able to collect you number and we will have bottled water on hand. PLease ensure you know your number as this makes the process far smoother. Race numbers can be found on the start list

If you have children in different waves to register, please wait for the appropriate time as again, this causes delay for the wave currently registering. We will endeavour to get you registered as soon as we can, but we will prioritise the next wave.

Transition Area

You will have a specific area within transition where you can keep your bike, running shoes and any nutrition/hydration you require during the event. Please keep any bags or items you will not need during the event in your car. There will be no additional storage available.

Spectators Support

Spectators are more than welcome.  There is a café on site that has been prepped and ready to serve your every need for coffees, teas, bacon barms and loads more. There is plenty of space around the perimeter of the cycle track. Spectators will not be permitted on the cycle track at any point. We will allow 1 parent per child to assist in setting up transition prior to the race, but we will ask you to leave 15 minutes before the start time.


The start line will be marked on the ground, with Black and Yellow tape. It will be away from transition, positioned appropriately for social distancing.

Each wave will include a mass start. please place yourself appropraitly when strating, so if you are expecting to be finishing towards the middle or back, please do not stand right at the front and cause any hazards during the start.

Please be ready to start a your allocated time to avoid holing up any other participants. If you arrive at the start line after your time has gone, you will have to wait until all other participants have started to commence your race.


Please run on the left side of the track to allow for overtaking and returning runners. you will be running in a clockwise direction.

Overtaking is allowed but if you are overtaken, please drop back slightly to allow for adequate distance. If you overtake, please move over to the right, but ensure you avoid any oncoming cyclists.


You will be riding on the left hand side of the track in an anti clockwise direction.

The mount line will be well out of the transition area, and it will be marked with a flag. The dismount line will be at the same line as where you mounted your bike. Please walk/run with your bike from/to transition. DO NOT mount or dismount before these points. This has been put in place to avoid any confusion between cyclists, runners or motorists as well as providing additional space to adhere to social distancing.

All riders MUST wear a helmet and will not be allowed on the course without one.

At dismount, please ensure you dismount on the left hand side to avoid veering into any riders still on course behind you. please dismount safely and then only cross to the transition area where clear. 



The finish line will be at the start line where your time will be manually recorded. Please make your way safely from the finish line back to transition where you will be able to cool down and catch your breath.

Please do not return to the finish line at any point after you have finished. This is to avoid any unnecessary contact.

Results will be posted online and emailed on early in the week following the event, please do not ask for your time at the finish. Please also be aware that results are recorded manually and while we make every effort to ensure accurate results, human error is possible. If any results appear incorrect, please let me know by email and I will endeavour to amend these before submitting to Go Tri.

I thank you for your support and patience as events were put on hold during Lockdown.

If you have any questions I haven’t answered here, please get in touch by email, social media or text and I will be happy to answer any questions.
