The Event

Are you looking to step up from a Super Sprint or Sprint triathlon without a daunting Olympic distance swim? Then we have just the thing...

We launched the UK Ultimate 1/4 as a precursor to our 'iron-distance' Ultimate Half Triathlon.

For those of you who find the 1500m Olympic swim a daunting prospect this event offers a fantastic challenge upgrade with just a 0.6mile swim (965m). The event covers one lap of the swim, one lap of the bike and two laps of the run course taken on by the Ultimate 1/2 competitors

The peaceful & scenic venue of Alderford Lake is centrally located in Shropshire on the border of North Wales and is surrounded by Cheshire, Staffordshire, Herefordshire & Worcestershire.

  • Freshwater lake swim with no current and no weed
  • Picturesque countryside cycle & run routes, ideal for PB's
  • Swim start, transition and run finish all within a stone's throw of each other
  • Spectator friendly venue, great for supporting friends and family
  • Fantastic on-site facilities including Showers, parking (charges apply), lakeside café and kids play area
  • Finishers medal
  • Prizes for overall male & female winners and age group prizes

Camping available at http://alderford.com/stay/ and https://www.abbeygreenfarmcamping.com

 

UK Triathlon Covid Safe Events

All UK Triathlon 2021 events

2020 brought the need for change in the way we run our events, in what could only be described as an exceptionally difficult year for all.

With six events safely & successfully delivered in 2020, we are confident we can fulfil our calendar of events in 2021.

We will continue to comply with social distancing and existing guidelines, following the format we delivered successfully last year.

Below you can read more detailed information on our current format and rest assured this will be amended/updated if/when necessary.

In the meantime, we wish you all the best with your training activities and look forward to welcoming you to an event soon.

Your Health before the Event
If you have any Covid-19 symptoms do not come to the event. If you develop symptoms within 14 days after the event and are tested positive, please contact UK Triathlon immediately.

Social Distancing
Can we please remind you it is each and every person's responsibility to social distance. The same will apply at all UK Triathlon events.

Start Format
Instead of mass starts throughout the day for open water events, each competitor will start at intervals, giving everyone their own individual start time and space. We run this format, very successfully, in all our pool-based triathlons and it works perfectly. Pool based events will also have slightly longer start intervals than usual between competitors.

Spectators
At some events it may be necessary to ask that you don't unnecessarily bring spectators to help make social distancing easier for everyone.

Registration
Every competitor will be temperature checked before being allowed to register. Only two competitors will be allowed to register at a time. The queue for registration will be separated by ground markers to assure a minimum of 2 metre separation. We will provide a sanitising hand station which you must use before entering registration.

Hand Sanitising
There will be 10 hand sanitiser stations around the venue, please hand sanitise before registration, entering transition, finish line and whenever you have the opportunity to do so before and after the event.
Please sanitise before and after toilet use.

Race Brief
There will be a rolling live race brief at the poolside or lakeside. As competitors will start at regularly spaced intervals, this will prevent groups of people and a 2 metre distancing measure will be in operation.

Bike Course
Normal drafting rules apply.

Run Course
Overtake or pass other competitors at a minimum distance of 2 metres where possible.

Feed Stations Run & Finish line
Drinks will be dispensed for you at feed stations, High5 Energy Source & Water will be identified clearly with signs. Move away as quickly as possible allowing for other competitors. Bin your litter. When you have crossed the finish line, we ask you not to stay in that area for any longer than required. Drinks will be dispensed for you at the finish feed area, please move away as quickly as possible to allow other finishers through.

Results
We will not operate our results screen at the event. Provisional results will be online at www.uktriathlon.co.uk later the same day.

Prize Presentation
Presentations will take place throughout the day, please observe 2 metre social distancing if attending the presentation.

Your Covid Officer is Vic Bickerton
If you wish to report anything regarding Covid safety, please report it to Vic located at the finish line.
