Kendal Sprint Triathlon
First hosted in 2009 Kendal Sprint Triathlon has grown in popularity and offers the ideal opportunity to test early season fitness with its sister event in September. Kendal Sprint Triathlon is suitable for both experienced and beginner triathletes. The event has reached maximum capacity for the last few years so early registration is recommended.
Swim 400m 16 lengths
Competitors will be three a lane and will start in the deep end in waves between 08:10 and 11.30. You will be instructed which direction to swim in, anti-clock or clockwise and there will be lane counters to assist in your counting. Your attention will be gained when there is just two lengths remaining. Swimmers will be started 10 seconds apart so it is important you pay attention to your lane position which will be indicated on the start sheet. The female waves start first. Followed by the teams then the male waves all graded upon estimated swim times, please ensure you enter the correct 400m time. Swimmers are reminded to observe lane etiquette and swim considerately.
Please assemble on poolside at the shallow end 15 minutes before your start time where you will be met by myself for the pre-race briefing.
Garmin Bike Route
The course leaves Kendal Leisure Centre and heads on quiet undulating roads out through Natland and Sedgwick completing 2 laps of a 6 km loop before returning the way you went out. The course will be clearly marked with bright florescent signs and marshals posted at various locations. However it is the competitors responsibility to know the course. Competitors are reminded that marshals are unable to stop traffic it is the competitors responsibility to follow and obey the highway code. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
Garmin Run Route
The run course is at first a fast flat run out towards Natland, with a slight rise out of Natland before the last (and best) 2km down hill run to the finish line.
