Do you want to race for Hillingdon Triathletes at the Triathlon England Club Relays 2017?
Open to ALL members of Hillingdon Triathletes, novice or expert. If you can complete the distances, you are welcome.
*** MINIMUM AGE FOR ENTRY IS 15 YEARS ON 31st DECEMBER 2017 ***
The Club Relays takes place this year on Saturday 26th August 2017 at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, at the National Water Sports Centre. The race comprises distances of approx. 500m open-water (wetsuit) swim, 15km cycle, 5km run.
Teams are 4 people, and the event runs in relay format: swimmer one swims, tags swimmer two who swims.....until swimmer four tags cyclist one (who was previously swimmer one)...and you keep going until the fourth runner crosses the line. So, you actually get a break between each discipline.
In 2009 EIGHT teams, 2010 NINE teams, 2011 TEN teams, 2012 THIRTEEN Hillingdon teams, 2013 SIXTEEN teams, 2014 EIGHTEEN teams....
*** IF YOU WANT TO RACE, YOU NEED TO REGISTER THROUGH THIS SYSTEM ***
(Do NOT enter directly with the organiser!)
Entry is £45 per person, and this includes a special edition and popular Hillingdon Triathletes hoodie which we will have made for the event. Another great (new!) design is planned.
(Note: non-BTF members will have to pay an additional £5 on race day for a day licence to cover insurance).
Depending on numbers, we will be entering junior, ladies, men’s, mixed, vets, super-vets and open (any combination) teams.
But don't worry about that now, just register your interest, and teams will be allocated by this year's relay co-ordinators once we know how many people (and who!) has entered. Hillingdon entries will be organised centrally - you DO NOT need to enter separately with the race organiser. As noted above, your speed isn't important, this event is about fun - if you can do the distances, you arewelcome!
*** MINIMUM AGE FOR ENTRY IS 15 YEARS ON 31st DECEMBER 2015 ***
Racing takes place in the morning on Saturday 26th August (8.45am approx) and afternoon (1.30pm approx).
Many of the club will be staying over in Nottingham on Saturday (and possibly Friday) night, and camping, which is very close to the event location, cheap, and no booking required. It's a brilliant weekend, don't miss it. There are also local hotels / B&Bs available too.
