ARRIVAL

We advise competitors to arrive a minimum our hour before before the start of their race to ensure they have plenty of time to rack their bikes before the first wave of competitors and also gives everyone time to find their way around the course and feel comfortable with the transition areas. Final race information including competitor’s final start times will be emailed out to you approximately 10 days before the Allerthorpe Sprint Triathlon and will also be listed on the website the week before the event on here so please make sure you check your time and allow plenty of time for travel to the venue. We will be in touch before this, keeping you up to date with any race information, training tips and ideas that might just help you achieve a PB!

There is parking available at the venue. There are also changing facilities, a great choice of food plus equipment stalls at the event (just in case you forget something!)

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE COURSE

 SWIM

The first of the Freebird Events open water triathlons starts with the Allerthorpe Sprint Triathlon.

You’ll start with a 750-metre swim, in the calm surroundings of the water sports lake. With great visibility throughout and easy to navigate swim course, you can focus your attention on achieving your best effort. At the end of the swim, exit the water to the cheers of your loyal supporters and our team of marshals and event team. Experience the freedom and enjoyment of open water swimming with the full support of a very experienced water safety crew who will be on standby in the lake at all times during the event.

To make the event as fair as we can, we ask for your estimated swim time for 400 metres when completing your entry form. This allows us to allocate you to a swim wave, starting with other triathletes of a similar ability to yourself. Not only does this make it fair but it also reduces any anxiety some of you may have about the swim wave of the course.

BIKE

Having completed the swim, you’ll enter the transition area located very close to the swim exit. From here you will head out onto the 20-kilometre bike circuit around Allerthorpe (located only 10 miles from York, North Yorkshire). You can be assured that the bike course is very easy to navigate with signs located at every junction along with highly experienced marshals to direct you throughout the ride. The Yorkshire roads are particularly flat and set in beautiful countryside making this part of the course particularly picturesque. The quiet and well surfaced roads make this bike circuit a pleasure to ride.

Unfortunately, this is not a closed road event but we take the upmost care to ensure drivers are aware of the event and the roads are usually quite quiet allowing for an undisturbed ride.

RUN

Having completed 2 disciplines, you now just have the 5-kilometre out and back run to go. Heading out of Allerthorpe Lakeland Park you will experience the friendly atmosphere as you start your run. As expected, signage and marshals are located at every road junction along with the enthusiasm and support of our Freebird support crew. Having reached the turnaround point you have a final 2.5-kilometres to go before reaching the finish line and the applauds of everyone cheering you home.

Let’s make 2018 your year!

TIMING

You will wear a timing chip throughout the event which will track your time throughout each discipline, at the end of the course you can view your time and get a print out from our machine. Final timings and photos will be uploaded to our website within 7 days of completion of the event. (Please bear with us on this as due to high numbers of competitors this can sometimes take several days to process!)

In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding the Allerthorpe Sprint Triathlon, please check our FAQ page and if your query is not answered there please contact us  we will do our best to answer any question you may have.

Best of luck with your training and preparation for your chosen triathlon. We look forward to welcoming you to the Allerthorpe Sprint Triathlon on 7th July 2018.
