Please read the Competitor Briefing: http://pactrac.co.uk/media/files/mini_series_briefing_5.pdf
The Mini-Series is a series of 8 Wednesday night, club triathlon events. 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, which means no cycling within 10 metres behind another bike, unless you intend to overtake.
Some good news; the BTF have relaxed their insurance demands, and non-members can now compete!
Non-members can do two club events (of any sort) before becoming a member.
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.
