Mini-Series 2 plus Novice 1.

Event description:

The Mini-Series is a series of 10 Wednesday night, club triathlon races. New Members can join on the night, by filling out a Membership Form. The course is based around Oundle Swimming Pool. Registration from 6:45pm.

NOTE: The BTF's Drafting rule has now been extended to 10 metres.

There will be two waves: a Novice wave with a 200-yard swim, and a regular wave with a 400-yard swim for everybody, novice and experienced alike.

Some good news; this year, the BTF have relaxed their insurance demands, and non-members can now compete again!
Non-members can do two mini-series triathlon's before becoming a member ... and, their is a New Members Subscription to the Membership Form that costs £25 for Membership including one free race (for new members only).

This event will also incorporate the first of three NOVICE Mini-Series.
Their will be 2 swim waves, with different distances. The bike and run courses will be the same.

NOVICE WAVE: Swim - 200 yards. 4 lengths of the pool.
Regular wave: Swim - 400 yards. 8 lengths of the pool.

bike - 10 miles. 1-circuit around Glapthorn, Upper Benefield, Lower Benefield and Oundle. A couple of nasty climbs, but 1-mile of twisty decent around the Benefield's and a 40mph stretch just before the Golf Course!

run - 3.5 miles. Out to Glapthorn and back the same way.

There is a Trophy (male and female), with your best 5 Mini-Series Races to count.
Your best 2 Mini-Series also count towards the Club Championships.
