Race Rules
The White Oak Sprint Triathlon has been sanctioned by the British Triathlon Federation (BTF) – a copy of the approval certificate can be seen on the club website and also on the notice board at Registration.

The Race will be run in conjunction with the Technical & Competition Rules as laid down by the BTF.  Competitors are expected to be familiar with the rules.  They can be viewed on the BTF website under the Events tab.

There will be a BTF appointed Race Referee who may be able to help on the day with questions regarding race rules, again speak to one of the Club Marshalls.

Registration
Registration opens at 5:30am and is in the Leisure Centre Crèche, turn right at reception and walk to the end of the glass hallway overlooking the pool. BTF members must produce their current race license (One that expires post event) in order to be given the £3 race rebate. No license on Rebate.
Non BTF members will have paid for a day license as part of their Race entrant’s fee.

You will collect your race numbers, including helmet sticker, bike sticker and goody bag at the Registration desk.

If you have any sort of medical issue that the medical team should know about please let the marshals at registration know – they will take the necessary details.

If you’re not fit to race, don’t, defer until next year, don’t put others at risk, think family first.

You will be given two race numbers and a sticker sheet at registration. The two race numbers should be pinned to the outer piece of clothing in which you will be cycling and running. Please ensure they are visible by fixing one the front in the center of your chest (for the run) and the rear one in the small of your back (for the bike). If you are using a tri belt then pin the lables back to back and have them at your front for the run and your back for the bike.

There will be an example at registration.

The sticker sheet will have the following:

  • 1 long label to wrap around your seat post so that the number can be seen from both sides
  • 1 long label to wrap around the handle of your kit bag or box that you will use in transition
  • 1 number to stick on your helmet

We will also write your number on your left and right arms.

  • Be prepared
  • We can’t manage the weather so bring the right kit, if it’s obvious that it’s going to rain please wear the appropriate kit because we will not cancel the race just because of rain and wind.
  • Got a question please ask
  • We know that a triathlon can be a nerve racking experience for even the most experienced triathletes, we have mobilised the entire club plus friends and family to deliver the event so please ask if you have a question or concerns as we really want all competitors and guests to have a great experience.
