In order to ensure we can deliver our full season of events and you, our community, don’t miss out, we are pleased to announce that we have secured alternative dates for the affected races. We will automatically move any bookings to the new date’s as detailed below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Where are the events?

These events will take place across three locations in East Hertfordshire, Hartham Leisure Centre Hertford, Grange Paddocks Leisure Centre Bishops Stortford and Westmill Farm Ware.

What do I need to bring?

Pre-race information will be sent when you sign up to an event with an event-specific list but general items are:

Water bottle

Trainers/running shoes

Comfortable running top and shorts/bottoms

Towel, swimming costume, swimming hat and goggles for events including a swim

Bicycle and helmet for events including a cycling element

What if it's my first ever event?

Don’t worry you will be in good company! A large proportion of our participants last year across the age groups were taking past in their first ever race. The race distances are set to be achievable for all, regardless of experience. 

We will have marshalls on site to make sure the route and rules are clear and will be organising training sessions before our events.

What is a transition area?

The transition area is where you transfer from one section of the race to the next. This could be from the pool to the run for an Aquathlon or from the cycle element to the run route in a Triathlon.

You will need to leave any items you need for the next section in the transition. For example when transferring from the pool to the run, you would leave a towel, running shoes and any additional running clothes (top or bottoms) you will need for the run.

What age group do I fit in?

Your age group will be determined by what age you will be when on the date of the event. Age groups are:

8-10 year old’s = Children

11-13 year old’s = Juniors

14+ = Adults

Do I get anything for completing the race?

Every participant, regardless of your finishing position or finishing time will receive a medal upon completion of the race. The race director will also have information on other events coming up or more regular swim, run or tri clubs.
