Tri farm is a “one stop triathlon training facility” based in Boreham, Essex. With it’s very own lake , cycle and run route this is the ultimate place to practice your tri. The guys at Tri farm have thought of everything from wetsuit hire to last minute wetsuit lube and goggles! The supervised swim course has an average depth of 2m. The run course is all around the track. All the staff are RLSS qualified and there are even picnic tables for emergency cake or bacon rolls post tri!
The swim is in Tri farms lake. As this is a small fun event, Multisports management will be setting swimmers off individually in numerical order, 20 seconds apart. So you'll have no problems with crowding. Waves will be split into genders and age groups. The start is over at the usual Tri farm swim place; you'll spot it (the lakes a big clue). Please keep off the run path as bikes will be using it.
After you swim clockwise for 3/4 of a lap, keeping the turn buoys on your right you make your way to the exit, do so with caution as it is up onto slippery uneven surface. Wetsuits are likely to be optional, this will depend on the water temperature.
The bike course is mainly on road, with approximately 30% off road. Mountain bikes or hybrids with a reasonable tread are recommended. There no fixed gears allowed
The running route is based around the lake, ail running shoes and trainers with a decent tread are recommended (but not spikes.)
Race numbers are very important as the event is manually timed.
Results and Prizes:
This is a fun event rather than a competition. You'll all get a finishers medal. Awards will be made for fastest swim and fastest run and fastest overall male and female competitors.
