For the Sprint - 16 lengths.ย

The Bike

Sprint Distance 24.2 km

Double Sprint 48.4 km

Undulating but forgiving bike course with a suburban start until you are out on the open roads of Wilmslow and the surrounding towns. Couple of cheeky climbs to keep you honest but nothing that would overly worry novice / experienced athlete alike.ย  Back to the Leisure centre for the Run.

THE RUN

Sprint 6.3 kmย 

Double Sprint 12.6 km

After a quick change you are on the run, nothing too steep, nothing too flat, mixed terrain,ย  but most trainers will be suited to this environment.ย  Follow the signs and obey the marshals instructions and you will be through the finish to collect your medal.

The 4th discipline...

Here are some tips to make race day a little bit smoother.

1) Layout your kit in the order you need it. (Always put helmet on first!)

2) What row are you in?

3) Make a note of how far you are from "swim in", walk the route and count the steps, it will help you remember your racking slot when you come out of the water.ย 

4) Look for landmarks (Flags, kiosks, trees) level with your space to give a visual reference to where your spot is. (once you get near you should see the bike and your towel.

5) Don't panic, slow is smooth, smooth is fast!

By doing the above you can save minutes off your time, practice putting your kit on and off, it will make you efficient come race day!
