Mini-Series 1.

Event description:

Please read the Competitor Briefing:

The Mini-Series is a series of 6 Wednesday night, club triathlon events. Entry is in advance by ClubPal only. 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 insurance allows for non-members to compete. You can do two events or swims before we ask you to join.
Non-members can do two club events (of any sort) before becoming a member. Please note that only BTF members are covered for both Personal Accident AND 3rd party liability. PACTRAC members and non-members who are not separately members of the BTF do not have this insurance.

Swim - 400 metres. 16 lengths of the 25-metre 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! NOTE: the bike start uses a new route out of the school grounds to come out by Oundle Fire Station.

run - 3.1 miles. Out to Glapthorn, again via the Fire Station exit; at Glapthorn turn and retrace, but go past the Fire Station to come into the School via the old route along Milton Road.

There is a Trophy (male and female), with your best 3 Mini-Series Races to count.
Your best 2 Mini-Series also count towards the Club Championships.
