Our Aquathlon consists of a swim in The Pods' pool and a run around Scunthorpe's Central Park.
We have 2 distances 200m swim & 2km run AND 400m swim & 4km run.
Children aged 11+ are able to do the shorter event. If an adult wants to try the shorter distance then that is also great.
You can swim breaststroke if you like whatever you are comfortable with.
After the swim you put your t-shirt & trainers on, go out of the rear doors and start your run around Central Park. The run is well signposted & marshalled.
This is a FUN event, our emphasis is on everyone having fun. We run a mini-series competition over 3 races, spring, summer & autumn and everyone who competes in at least 2 of the events will receive a medal. The winner of the series receives a Trophy to keep for 3 months and a mini version to keep forever.
We award points for
1. Entering online
2. Bringing marshalls
3. Racing in fancy dress
4. Hi-Fiving the turnaround marshall
5. Fastest transition
6. Getting a PB
7. Being a nice person
and some others we may think up on the day.... you will see from this that everyone who takes part really enjoys the race.
Our aim as a club is to encourage first timers to become active and enjoy our sport. You are welcome to come to our club sessions which are on Wednesday evenings 8-9pm at The Pods and we hope that you will want to take part in all of our GO TRIs
We do operate a timing system which means you have to separately purchase a band from the timing company.
You can get this here: timing band
This band is valid for 12 months and costs £12. As we run at least 10 events and it is used in our club sessions we believe its excellent value for money. You are emailed your times straight after the event.
We need you to register your details on this site as this massively speeds up registration on the day. If you just want to give us a try that is fine but you will need £3 for a temporary band which we can sort out at registration.
