Club Relay Race

Sun, 12 Aug 18 09:45
Queenford Lake

Following on from the success of last years Club Relay Tri we are pleased to announce that we will hold our own internal Club Relay Sprint Tri againat Queenford Lake, Berinsfield.

If you didn't take part last year the format is quite simple. In teams of three (that will be cunningly and scientifically selected to be as evenly matched as possible) your first team member will complete a lake swim and then tag the next team member who will then swim and in turn tag the last team member who then swims. They will then tag the first team member who starts the bike leg and so on. First team home wins and Club Champs points up for grabs!

This will be a short Sprint Tri - exact distances to be confirmed but likely to be 500 metre lake swim, 15k bike and 5k run. The bike route will be on open roads including some main road and will be signposted. The run will be mixed terrain including some off-road trails around the lake and some paved paths around Dorchester village and will also be signposted. 

We will keep marshalling to a minimum to allow as many members as possible to take part but if you or a family member would like to marshall or timekeep then that would be very welcome, volunteer sign-up available soon.

First swimmers will start at 9.45 with everyone finished by around 1.30pm with a barbecue open to competitors and spectators afterwards.

There will be a small charge to cover lake hire, racking and insurance, we expect this to be under £15 per head and will confirm shortly with payment through the website in advance. Sign-up is now open so please express your interest here.
