TTG Gloucester Triathlon Transition 2016

Entry is via entrycentral, get in quick before it fills up!

Tri Team Glos’ annual Gloucester Triathlon is a fantastic early season sprint distance to get your race season off to a flying start.

Established for over 10 years, it is widely recognised as one of the best local triathlons. We are well-organised with great facilities, a fast course and plenty of friendly and helpful marshals.

Our race is chip-timed, we have a good quality food van courtesy of Sweeny Catering and mechanical support from Velo Vitesse.

We are restricted to 220 places and we have been oversubscribed every year for the past five years, so enter early to avoid disappointment. Some feedback from previous years:

“This is the best-organised race I have ever entered.”

“Your marshals were fantastic.”

“This was my first race and you made it a great experience for me.”

“You could teach some of the big organisers a thing or two!”

We hope to see you there!

Team entry

This year we would like to invite teams to enter our event. A team will consist of three individuals completing each leg of the event, run, bike and run, tagging the next person in the relay within transition. We hope this will be a welcome addition to the event. Please note, only the team captain needs to enter the event and the price assumes all team members produce a BTF license at registration. In the absence of a BTF license, a fee of £3 per person is applicable.

BTF license

A valid BTF license must be presented on race day by all athletes or you will be charged regardless of whether you are a member or not. If athletes are not British Triathlon Federation (BTF) members, they are required to purchase a day membership to take part in BTF registered events. A BTF Day Membership provides non BTF members with civil liability and personal accident insurance cover during the event and confirms their agreement to abide by the conditions of membership and rules of the BTF, details of which are published on www.britishtriathlon.org. The cost of BTF Day Membership for this event is £3.00 per athlete which must be paid at registration. Teams with members who are not fully paid up members of the BTF are also required to purchase a day membership.
