National Relays Nottingham 2018

National Relays Nottingham 2018

The event is being held at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham on Saturday 25 August, and promises to be a very fun day out. The event is suitable for all comers, consisting of a 500m swim, 15km bike and 5km run. However, the different part of this relay event is that every member of the team does each bit before anyone starts the next leg. So if you are the first swimmer in your team, you will hand off to the next swimmer and then wait until everyone has done their swim before moving to the bike. This should give plenty of opportunities to cheer on your club and teammates in the middle of your triathlon. We are then planning on camping on the Saturday evening after the racing has finished, to continue to (hopefully) celebrate some serious achievements or at the very least just have a laugh after a good day out. All the official details of the event can be found on the organiser's page: National Relays

So, since you obviously want to be involved, we have a couple of options for how the racing can be done. Single gender teams are racing in the morning with mixed gender teams racing in the afternoon, we believe its possible to race both if you are really keen, but we are targetting getting as many people to form mixed teams as possible. If you have a team already lined up, please let us know you are coming, however if you don't have a team lined up we can put you in a team with some other people in a similar position. Where possible we will try to ensure that age groups stay broadly together so people can race in the right category. We have set up the "sign-up sheet" (which sounds way more formal than it is) to help do some of this co-ordination. So please fill in your details if you want to be involved.

The sign-up sheet is here: Relay Sign Up

Hope to see you all there!
