Each team consists of three competitors, who complete the course as follows: team member No. 1 will take part in the mass swim start, followed by the 18.5km cycle, and the 3.8km run before handing over to team member No. 2 who follows the same course and then hands over to team member No. 3. The team’s time will be calculated as team member No. 3 finishes the course. Chip timing will give each competitor their own split times, with one chip per athlete, to be securely fastened around the left ankle.
There is no limit to the number of teams per club, but each team must be individually detailed. Changes to teams will be allowed up to at least two weeks before the event; contact Kirsten at firstname.lastname@example.org Cancellations may be refunded if a replacement team can be found, but only if more than one week before the event.
Horsham District Council in partnership with Southwater Watersports Centre maintains supervision of Cripplegate Lake and the surrounding area but as a large body of untreated water hosting a range of wildlife, factors beyond the Council’s control may create an unsuitable environment for watersports. In such circumstances the Council reserves the right to close the lake to watersports activities. The lake water can also have varying bacterial levels which cannot be controlled and so people who take part in watersports at the lake should, therefore, be aware of the inherent risks associated with inland open water such as Leptospirosis (Weil’s disease) and neither the Council, Southwater Watersports nor Horsham Amphibians Triathlon can be held liable for any ill health resulting from such activity.
