As per the new rules from the BTF which we hold the event under - a new age restriction now applies to the bike section
“Where the bike segment is on open roads, Event Organisers must receive parental consent for competitors aged 15. Competitors aged 16 and 17 are assumed to have autonomy to make this decision however, it is recommended the competitor consults their parent/guardian/carer.
No competitors under the age of 15 are permitted to take part on bike segments on the open road, even if the distance is permitted.”
This is effective from January 2020 - so we can no longer accept entries under the age of 15 for this event - sorry.

Triathlon Transgender Guidance
From 1 January 2023, the updated British Triathlon Transgender policy will come into effect. The below guidance will support the implementation of the policy and serve to ensure that our sport continues to develop in being welcoming, supportive and inclusive for everyone.The guidance will support you in delivering your swim, bike and run activity in accordance with the new policy and in developing inclusive practices. The following core pillars are fundamental to the policy:
Triathlon is a gender affected sport and the policy aims to clarify how competitive activity can maintain fairness whilst ensuring our sport is accessible to all.For non-competitive activity, swim, bike, run and triathlon remains open, accessible and inclusive to everyone and participants are encouraged to participate in their self-identified gender.
For competitive activity for individuals above the age of 12 that is run in accordance with the British Triathlon Competition Rules and events permitted by British Triathlon, fairness of competition is paramount and so the policy stipulates a female category (open to athletes who are the female sex at birth) and an Open category (open to all, including male, transgender and non-binary individuals who were the male sex at birth) be provided.
Registration open from: 05:30:00
