** The laps on the bike course are tough and involve climbing a short hill multiple times and descending at the other side of the park. Please ensure your child is confident and able to complete the course before entering them.
Estimated swim times. When completing the online entry form, you will be asked for an estimated swim time. It's important
you are as accurate as possible as we set swimmers off according to their swim times.
For 750m, the fastest swimmers complete the distance in around 10 minutes, the average time is between 17-18 minutes and the slowest about 30 minutes. We don't mind how long you take but the race runs much more smoothly if everyone is swimming with others of a similar ability and for this
reason we will be unable to accommodate requests to change start times.
We will be unable to respond to emails on 31 January but if you have any queries please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as we can. GO TO: www.crystalpalace-tri.co.uk/race/triathlon.htm
