Details of the Adult Sprint race, to commence at 7am, are below.
Detailed start times and wave allocations will be posted below nearer the day and e-mailed to all competitors. Likely to be two weeks prior to race day.
If this is your first triathlon, a huge THANK YOU for doing your first race with us! To help you calm the nerves and be well prepared, download the handy guide below:
The swim will take place in the 22m Indoor pool. The adult race is a 440m swim (20 lengths).
Competitors will be allocated waves appropriate to their declared anticipated swim times. There will be four lanes in operation each with four swimmers.
Swimmers will be identified with coloured swim hats (provided) and set off at 10 second intervals.
Each lane will have it’s own lane counter and you will be signalled when you have 2 lengths to go. It is the responsibility of each competitor however to also count their laps!
The 30km cycle will once again take to the quiet, undulating country roads that surround the school and pass through some of the pretty surrounding villages such as Stockbridge and The Clatfords.
At time of writing, there are no anticipated road closures or re-surfacing work

The 8.3km run route will leave the confines of the school grounds and takes full advantage of the stunning local scenery and quiet roads of the local villages.
A water station is available at T2 and along the route. The finish line is back at Farleigh School.

New for 2019 – a relay event
By popular demand, we are introducing a relay option for our adult sprint race. Designed for those you feel that doing a full triathlon is not your thing, or you simply want to have a team effort with a couple of friends.
It’s simple to enter, just make sure you have two others to race with and have their details to hand. The format is simple too. The swimmer hands over the team’s timing chip to the cyclist within the handover box in transition and similarly, the cyclist hands it over to the runner on completion of the bike route. All three of you cross the finish line together and each recive a medal. There are prizes for the best performing team.
Go on, give it a go!
We are always on the look out for ideas that will not only make for a better race, but also improve athlete safety. Our latest 'tweak' combines both of these elements and will be in place for our 2017 event. The change concerns the last mile of the adult run course....
