FAQ

There are always questions that you might have, the common ones are answered below.

What will registration look like?

You will register online. About 7 days before event day we will send you an email. You will then need to complete the Competitor Responsibility Statement and Covid Health Screening Questionnaire online. This avoids the queue at number pick up. You must do this otherwise you will not be able to get your race number. If you have missed any emails you can find it by going to your my.challenging.events account.

When is the race briefing?

To avoid crowds we will do the race briefing via a webinar on Friday evening. You will be emailed a google meets invite. Don't worry if you can't make the briefing, it will be recorded for you to watch when you can. You must watch the briefing. Any emergency updates will be communicated on race day, either via email or as you head into transition.

When will I get my race pack?

Race packs will be made 72 hours before pick up. They will contain your numbers, wristband, swim hat and timing chip. You can collect these on either Saturday between 3pm and 5pm or on event day morning. You must know your race number and ensure you either have a BTF day licence (paid when entering) or an in date BTF licence. If it is out of date you will need to pay £6.

What happens in transition?

Make sure you have your bike stickers on, wristband on and helmet on and done up before entering transition. The marshal will check this as you enter and leave transition.

Will there be an feed station on route?

You must be self sufficient. Ensure you have enough water and fuel to get you through the event. There will be a water station on the run. It will be just as you leave the pit lane. A marshal will be filling the cups with water. A second marshal will be collecting discarded cups.

What is the minimum age to be able to take part?

For the sprint distance, the minimum age is 15 years old. Their parent/guardian will need to sign the competitor responsibility statement upon registration. Standard distance is 19 years old.
