Who can take part?

Competitors must be 15 or over to take part (on the 31st Dec 2018).

It is compulsory to wear a wetsuit, and you will need a road worthy bike though this doesn’t need to be a fancy one! You can get advice on hiring both a wetsuit and a bike from the event organisers if you need to.

Event wetsuit and bike hire

The local organising committee have arranged a low cost option for wetsuit and bike hire. Prices are £5 for bike and £5 for wetsuit and can be purchased during event entry or by logging back into the Active entry system via your confirmation email. Bikes and wetsuits hired will be ready for collection at transition on race day. Please note helmets are not included and you will need to bring your own for the cycle.
