  • Team of 2 or 3:  As above but shared amongst the team.
  • We can make up teams on the night so just turn up ready for some fun.

Age Restriction

People of all ages (and abilities) are welcome and encouraged to participate, however, due to it being an un-marshalled event with multiple road crossings, all under 14s must be accompanied by an adult whilst on the run stages.

Price:

Due to changes in event costs and in an attempt to make pricing as fair as possible for all competitors, the pricing structure has changed a little for this year:

  • Solo Entrant – £6
  • Team of 2 – £10
  • Team of 3 – £14

£2 price reduction for each u14 entrant or  for an entrant who is just running:

  • An u14 solo entrant fee will be £3 (5-2=£4)
  • A team of three including one u14 and one team member only running (not swimming) will cost £10 (13-2-2=£10)

5 for the price of 4! If you are a solo competitor and wish to sign up for the whole series (all 5 events) in advance then the cost will be £24 (£12 for under 14s).  Please see me at the first S&D event to sign up for the ‘Season Ticket’.

Free Entry Opportunity – if accompanying an under 14yr old then entry is absolutely free! This opportunity has been introduced to encourage people to help ensure that the growing number of young competitors are able to safely participate. (Warning – some of the u14s are v quick!)

Kit List:

  • Swimmers (or Tri suit) & Goggles (advisable if swimming)
  • Running kit (or Tri suit)
  • Towel
