The 4th Bridge Children’s Triathlon will take place on the 18th June 2017.
Entry’s are now open for the 2017 Dartford Bridge Children’s Triathlon
Every year we learn a bit more and we try and improve our events. The 2016 race went well but we can improve it so we will be making a few small changes to make it an even better event.
New swim course for this year’s children’s race. No lap’s just one loop for each race. 50m, 150m, 200, 300, this will make the swim easier for the children.
Due to time restrictions we are limited to only 50 in each age race wave. Boys and girls will be both racing in the same wave.
We can only start the children’s race when the last competitor has started there last lap of the run in the adult race. This will now be at 10.30 am. We need to have reopened the road by 1pm so all waves will need to start on time.
We will be fencing off all areas this year for safety reasons. We will also be moving the Transition area down to the trees to give us more room. The Finish will also be moved 20m again to give us more room (see site plan)
Registration will only open at 9.30am for the children’s race. Care must be taken when entering the site as there will be another race taking place early in the morning.
All children must be at the start area 10 minutes before their wave is due to start. Start times will be sent out the week before the race date by e-mail. They will also be posted on the web site
We made all these changes due to the extra spectators who came to watch the race in 2014
