As per 2016 and 2017, the Southwater Relays are part of the Triathlon England South East Senior Series.
For full details see: www.triathlonengland.org/south-east/take-part/senior_series/events
The venue has changing facilities, toilets, hot showers and a café.
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 Michelle 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.
New for 2018
FINAL FINISHERS – At around 10:45am all remaining third leg competitors who have not yet started their race will be set off from the holding pen, regardless of the position of their number two teammate. THIS WILL NOT IMPACT FINAL TEAM TIMES as these will be calculated and added up in the usual way. Horsham Amphibians are introducing this change as we want everyone to have a good race experience and avoid imposing cut-off times. Hopefully this will also enhance the race experience for our slower competitors as they will avoid a long wait in the holding pen!

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.
