Capernwray Sprint Tri / Aqua Series

As we missed our June event we thought it would be great to extend the season a little further. Our second to last event of the season at Capernwray is an Aquathlon. 500m swim followed by the pretty 4.3km run. Which has been complemented at all events by those racing.

Please check the Strava map and further details can be found HEREĀ 

**NOTE** We plan to have an athletes starting every 15 seconds from 17:00.

As you enter the dive centre you will be directed to park.

There is no registration. You will know your number (from the start sheet) and place your trainers in transition on the matting which will be numbered. Your timing chip will be waiting for you in your transition place. Please put the timing chip on your left ankle.

You will need to be ready to cross the timing mat by the waters entrance at your allocated time. Here you will be ticked off the start sheet.

We ask you to be extra vigilant on the course and for the time being discourage spectators to the Centre. It will be different but we hope you can support us safely at this time.

October 7th STARTSHEET

October 7th BRIEFING

Capernwray Triathlons are a great way to get your Tri fix on a week day. They’re super friendly and relaxed, so are also an ideal way to take your first steps into Triathlon.

What makes these events so nice is the swim in the cool ,clear waters of the flooded quarry that is Capernwray. Follow this with an undulating bike route that loops through lanes of Lancashire, then an out and back run along the Lancaster canal tow path and you’ll see why this is such a popular mid week event.

Are you completely new to Triathlon? Want to just get a taste of the sport to start with?? Then maybe have a go at the Aquathon. (July and August only) It’s the same swim as the Tri and the same run, but no bike section. A great taster, then maybe come back the following month for the full monty!
