Event Briefing Details
Please arrive around 30 minutes before your start time (9am Sprint / 10am GO TRI). 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.
There is ample free parking onsite as well as nearby side roads with adequate space to park. As this event is within a residential area, please ensure you park with due care and respect for residents. Please note if your bike is on your roof, you'll need to take it off before coming into the car park as there is a height restriction.
Your race number and medal will be at an allocated place in transition. This will be your area to keep your bike and trainers and any nutrition/hydration you may require during the event.
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 actively encouraged. There is no better feeling than crossing that finishing line infront of a roaring crowd. Come down and bring the family. There is a lovely pub serving great food just down the road from the venue.
The start line will be clearly marked and pointed out during our pre event meeting.
Please ensure you maintain social distancing while waiting to start. And be ready to start a your allocated time to avoid holing up any other participants. If you arrive at the start time 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 pavement to allow for overtaking and returning runners.
Please ensure you are adhering to social distancing measures while running. 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 runners.
The mount line will be well out of the car park/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.
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.

I have really enjoyed Manchester Airport Duathlon few weeks ago. This was the first race after a very long time for me so I was a bit nervous but the atmosphere was very relaxed and that put me in ease. Short distances were just enough to challenge myself. Lovely cycling route around countryside as well. Thanks for organising great simple event.
They are perfect for beginners, right through to experienced triathletes. The events are extremely friendly and very relaxed. They are a great mix between fun and competition.
Both events are run brilliantly. The bike routes on both take place on two amazingly scenic courses. The events offer something for everyone. Very accessible to people dipping their toes into multi sport events for the first time, to having a great option for seasoned athletes.
