National Club Triathlon Relays

We have now opened entries for members wishing to join one of the Serpentine teams going to the Club Triathlon Relays event to be held at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham over the course of the weekend of the 27th/28th August.

This is a great event involving teams of 4 each competing in a 400m swim, 15km cycle and 5km run in turn against triathlon clubs from around the country. It is on closed roads and is suitable for all abilities from novice to pro. This year due to high demand, there is an extra day for the event with an extra wave on the Sunday morning. The mixed teams race on Saturday morning, the women race on Saturday afternoon and the men on Sunday morning so you can enjoy a whole weekend of great racing and spectating while you soak up a really quite special atmosphere. We normally camp on the adjoining campsite for the weekend although you can just rock up for your race if you wish.

For more details, see the page on the club website and the organiser's website.

Serpentine has booked up 9 teams - 4 male, 2 female and 3 mixed - so we are looking for 36 triathletes to fill the spaces. The club is meeting half of the cost of the entry leaving each competitor to pay £20 each (or £25 if not BTF registered). Follow the link to enter. You will be asked to fill in estimates for your 400m swim time, 15km cycle and 5km run so that we can select the teams accordingly.

If you have any questions or want anything else to be taken into account in team selection (e.g. you have already arranged to race in a team with other people) then let me know.
