Epic Triathlons

The Wirral Triathlon, August 2015

The Wirral Triathlon is organised by Mersey Tri Club and Epic Events and takes place Sunday August 2015, at West Kirkby Marina, Wirral. It is a sprint distance triathlon and the open water swim takes place in West Kirkby marina which offers a safe and reliable open water venue. The event starts with a 750m open water swim followed by a 21k cycle, finishing with a 6k run. The cycle course is a 2 lap undulating route and the run course is a 2 lap course round the marina. The event is ideal for novices, experienced competitors and elite racers. Come and join us for a great triathlon event which is sure to become a classic on the North West calendar.

 

What do I need to enter the event?

 

1. A bicycle in roadworthy condition (mountainbike, roadracing bike or hybrid).
2. A cycle helmet of ANSI standard designed specifically for cycling which fits you well.
3. You must be medically fit and healthy.
4. You must be 16 years of age or above on the date of the event to participate.
5. You must be capable of swimming the 750m distance required for the event.


The swim:

 

Swimmers start from 8:00am and there will be several waves based upon age and gender. The course is a single loop 750m, it will be clearly marked with large swim buoys and water safety cover will be provided. it is complusory for all swimmers to wear a triathlon wetsuit for this event and you will be required to wear a swim cap (which will be provided at registration).

 

The bike:


The 21k bike is an undulating two loop course which starts and finishes at the marina lake. Your bicycle should be roadworthy and it is compulsory to wear a recognised cycle helmet, this event is non-drafting (you cannot ride directly behind another competitor to shelter from the wind) and you must not ride 2 abreast on the road.  The course is not closed to traffic and you should follow the highway code at all times, riding responsibly. There will be adequate signs throughout the cycle course to guide you and there will also be marshals at critical locations. The marshals cannot stop traffic and will not tell you whether it is 'clear to go', it is your repsonsibility to check for traffic.

 

The run:

 

The 5k run is a 2 loop course around the marina. By the time you reach the run course, your legs may be a little weary, so now is the time to 'dig in' deep. Needless to say, irrelevant of your experience or training, you'll be glad to reach the finish.

On the day you should register AT LEAST an hour before your start time. You will be given an electronic chip which wraps around your ankle (goes under your wetsuit if possible), 2 race numbers for rear of your cycle top and front of your run top (number belts allowed) and a numbered sticker for your bike. You will need to rack your bike in the enclosed transition area and then lay your equipment next to your bike. All equipment must be in the transition area. You must show your numbers before racking your bike in the transition area, the racking will be numbered and you should place your bike in the correct position. Once you have placed your cycle and run clothing with your bicycle, all other equipment must be removed from transition area to minimise disruption for other competitors.


There will be a briefing 15 minutes before your swim start next to the transition area and you will then be allowed to enter the water to warm up and line up. Please do not be late for this briefing as it may contain important changes to the event which may affect you.

'The Endurance Store Ulverston Pool Triathlon' April 5th 2015

 

Round 1 of the Epic Triathlon series for 2015 is the costal Ulverston Triathlon.  Based in the South Lakes, the event will dip you in Ulverston swimming pool, then take you on a coastal ‘out and back’ cycle ride followed by a run through the local country lanes and down the canal.  If you have a love of salty fresh air then Ulverston Triathlon is the event for you.  Competitors can sign up as a solo entrant or you can enter as a relay team of 3 and choose a discipline each. 

 

Ulverston Triathlon is also the home of this year’s ‘Inspire to Tri’ and welcomes all those who are new to triathlon.

 

Address 

Ulverston Leisure Centre

Priory Road,

Ulverston,

Cumbria

LA12 9HT

Website: www.northcountryleisure.org.uk

 

Date & Time

Sunday 5th April 2015 at 9am

 
The Triathlon Schedule:

07:30 - Registration & Transition opens 

08:00 - Tri Kidz start

09:00 - Triathlon start (first wave)

12:00 - Registration closes

12:20 - Transition closes

13:00 - Last swim wave

 

The Course: 

Ulverston Triathlon will consist of a 400m pool swim, a 28k road cycle and a 5.8k run.

 

The Swim

The swim will take place at Ulverston Leisure Centre.  Swimmers will start from 9am through to 1pm, based upon ability level.  You will complete 16 lengths of a 25m pool.  There will be 3 people in each lane at any given time.  When you enter, your estimated swim time will be used to calculate your swim start time.  Faster swimmers will start later in the morning and slower swimmers will start earlier.  You will be provided with a swim cap and there will be lane counting marshals, just in case you lose count. 

 

Due to the large number of competitors and the limited pool time, we have had to introduce a 15 minute cut off for completing the swim section.  If you are still in the pool at 15 minutes you will be asked to stop swimming and continue on to the bike section.  You will not be disqualified and you can continue the race however you will not be able to complete all 16 lengths.

 

You will need to arrive on poolside 15 minutes before your start time to be present for the compulsory briefing.

 

The Bike

The bike route takes place on the coast road from Ulverston Leisure Centre.  It is 28k in length and is an undulating ‘out and back’ route.  You leave the transition area at the leisure centre and head left up the coast road until you get to the roundabout at Rampside.  Then it is simply a case of turning round and retracing your steps back to the start.  The route is simple enough and is slightly undulating so don’t think that it is ‘flat’ because it is coastal.  As with all our events there is always a little challenge and Ulverston is no different.  Here it isn’t a nasty hill or a technical descent.  Ulverstons challenge is simply Mother Nature. It is always breezy in Ulverston! 

 

Your bike must be roadworthy and you must wear a recognised cycle helmet to take part in the event.  The event is non-drafting (you cannot ride directly behind another competitor to shelter from the wind) and you must not ride 2 abreast on the road.  The road is not closed to traffic and so you must follow the Highway Code at all times, riding responsibly.

 

The route is adequately signed throughout to guide you and there will be marshals at critical locations.  The marshals cannot stop traffic and will not say if it is ‘clear to go’ so you must be responsible for your own safety and check for traffic.

 

The Run

The 5.8k run is largely road based with a small section of canal towpath.  It is relatively flat and is only one loop.  You will start by heading out down quiet country lanes until you pass GlaxoSmithKline and reach the coast at the Bay Horse Hotel (possibly the windiest spot on the course).  If you don’t get blown away, from here you will join the canal towpath for a short while, before crossing the canal and returning back to transition via the country lanes.  You will see the finish line up the road and so you will have plenty of time to get your sprint on and smile for the finish line camera.

 

Transition/Start area: 

The transition area is located in the car park of the leisure centre, directly next to the swimming pool.  You may leave an old pair of trainers at the exit from the pool but not obstructing the door.  All other race equipment must be left within the transition area.  There is no cycling in the transition area at any time. 

 

To start, you will complete your swim, exit the pool via the rear fire door and run to transition to collect your bike.  The path can be slippery when wet so please take care.  You will then walk/run with your bike to the MOUNT LINE.  Do not mount your bike until you are over this line and take care whilst out on the road.  Upon returning from your bike loop, you must dismount before/at the same MOUNT LINE.  Once dismounted you can run/walk your bike back into transition and place it back on the rack.  DO NOT REMOVE YOUR HELMET UNTIL YOUR BIKE IS SAFELY RACKED.  All that is left now is to change into your running gear, exit transition (following marshals’ instructions for safety), run like the wind and cross the finish line in style.

 

What do I need to enter the event?

All you need is: -

  1. A bike which is in a roadworthy condition (mountain bike, road bike or hybrid is fine). You will be subject to a brief check and if found to be unsafe to ride, you will not be allowed to start. Please check that your headset, wheels, tyres, brakes, bars (including bar ends) are all safe and secure. If in doubt get it serviced by your local dealer.
  2. A recommended cycle helmet, designed specifically for cycling and fits correctly. You will be asked to fasten your helmet during the safety check and if it is found to be ill fitting you will be asked to adjust it or exchange it.
  3. Trainers.
  4. You must be medically fit and healthy. Epic Events advise that all participants consult their GP before completing any of our events.
  5. You MUST be 16 years of age or over on the day of the event. 

 

On the day:

You will need to register 1 hour before your start time whereupon you will be given an electronic timing chip to wrap around your ankle together with race numbers for yourself, your bike and your helmet (number belts are allowed)

 

You must show your number before racking your bike in transition (no exceptions).  You will match your number with the number on the rack and place your bike in the correct position together with any bike/run clothing.  All other equipment must then be removed from transition to minimise disruption for other competitors.

 

There will be a briefing 10 minutes before your swim start on poolside.  Please do not be late as it will contain important information for the event.


The Finish:

The finish line is under the giant red inflatable gantry located by transition on the car park.  Don’t forget to smile for the camera.  Results will be posted on our website, usually the same day.

 

Tri Kidz:

Ulverston Triathlon will also be the home of our Epic Kidz Aquathlon this year and will commence at 8am from the poolside.  Children will register from 7:30-8am whereupon they will be given a start time and a number.  Epic Kidz transition is at the rear of the swimming pool where you will leave your trainers and run clothing.  Make your way to poolside ready for the swim which will start at 10 second intervals from 8am in numerical order.  Children aged 7-9 will start first and will do a 25m swim (1 length).  Children aged 10-14 will follow and will do a 50m swim (2 lengths).  After the swim the children make their way to their transition area to change and start the run.  Ages 7-9 will do one lap of the field whereas ages 10-14 will do 2 laps. Once the laps are done they will then run onto the leisure centre car park and up to the finish line under the big red inflatable gantry.  All finishers receive a medal.

 

Refreshments:

There will be a stall selling refreshments at the event and there are a few local public houses for that post race celebratory meal.

 

Parking:

Parking is included within your entry price and is located about 300m down the lane from the leisure centre at Siemens Offices.  There is no parking on the event site, at the leisure centre or the tennis centre.  Please refrain from parking on Priory Road, outside the swimming pool or on the lane leading to the event car park as this forms part of the bike/run route and creates problems for the competitors, residents and local traffic.  Priory Road can be a busy road and parked cars cause a lot of issues for passing traffic and vision for the cyclists wanting to get in and out of the transition area.  PLEASE NOTE: THE POLICE WILL BE PRESENT ON THE DAY.  PLEASE ONLY USE THE EVENT CAR PARK SO THAT THE EVENT WILL CONTINUE TO RUN AGAIN NEXT YEAR. 

 

Strava Challenge

New for this year is the Strava Challenge. A long the course there will be an opportunity to win fantastic prizes on our Strava segments. To be eligible for the Strava Challenge you will need to be a member of our Epic Events Strava Club. You can join the club by CLICKING HERE.  Once you are a member, to enter the Strava Challenge you need to upload your bike and run onto Strava following the event, and the winners will be selected randomly. You will have to be quick as the winners will be selected on Tuesday at 12 noon on 7th April 2015.

'The Endurance Store Horwich Pool Triathlon' May 3rd 2015

HORWICH TRIATHLON IS NOW FULL FOR 2015.  THERE IS NO WAITING LIST.

 

Round 3 of the Epic North West Triathlon Series for 2015 is the hilly Horwich Triathlon, organised in conjunction with Bolton Tri Club.  Taking place from Horwich Leisure Centre, the event will take you up and over some of Bolton’s best hills.  If you have a love of long, fast roads, challenging climbs and tough trails, Horwich Triathlon is the event for you.  Horwich Triathlon is one of the North West’s longest established races in the triathlon calendar and its tough course will put even the best to the test. 

 

Competitors can sign up as a solo entrant or you can enter as a relay team of 3 and choose a discipline each. 

 

Address

Horwich Leisure Centre,

Victoria Road,

Horwich,

Bolton

BL6 5PY

 

Date & Time

Sunday 3rd May 2015 at 8am

 
The Triathlon Schedule:

06:30 – Registration & Transition opens

07:00 – Race start (first wave) 

12:00 - Registration closes

12:30 - Transition closes


The Course:

Horwich Triathlon will consist of a 500m pool swim, a 40k road cycle and an 8.6k off road run.

 

The Swim

The swim will take place in Horwich Leisure Centre’s pool.  Swimmers will start from 7am through to 1pm, based upon ability level.  You will complete 20 lengths of a 25m pool.  There will be 3 people in each lane at any given time.  When you enter, your estimated swim time will be used to calculate your swim start time.  Faster swimmers will start later in the morning and slower swimmers will start earlier.  You will be provided with a swim cap and there will be lane counting marshals, just in case you lose count. 

 

Due to the large number of competitors and the limited pool time, we have had to introduce an 18 minute cut off for completing the swim.  If you are still in the pool at 18 minutes you will be asked to stop swimming and continue on to the bike section.    You will NOT be disqualified and you CAN continue the race however you will not be able to complete all 20 lengths.  

 

You will need to arrive on poolside 15 minutes before your start time to be present for the compulsory briefing.

 

The Bike

 The bike route is a tough 40k cycle ride and is made up of only 1 loop.  The loop is an undulating route which means that it is ‘hilly’.  It climbs right from the start and then continues to roll relentlessly for the remainder of the route (try saying that fast 3 times!).  The route heads out of transition, northwards up the hill towards Belmont.  You then hit the long but undulating Belmont Road where you will eventually get a bit of respite as you drop through Abbey Village to the M65 roundabout.  From here you climb back to Horwich via Chorley, skirting around towards Rivington and eventually arriving back at the Leisure Centre. 

 

Your bike must be roadworthy and you must wear a recognised cycle helmet to take part in the event.  The event is non-drafting (you cannot ride directly behind another competitor to shelter from the wind) and you must not ride 2 abreast on the road.  The road is not closed to traffic and so you must follow the Highway Code at all times, riding responsibly.

 

The route is adequately signed throughout to guide you and there will be marshals at critical locations.  The marshals cannot stop traffic and will not say if it is ‘clear to go’ so you must be responsible for your own safety and check for traffic.

 

The Run

The 8.6k run is roughly an ‘out and back’ run that follows the bike route up the road for a few minutes, before you turn left and head towards Rivington Country Park.  The route climbs upwards right from the beginning, it is a little bit on the steep side and continues upwards for quite some time until you eventually summit at Rivington Pike.  Only then can you drop down the other side of the pike, turn round and retrace your steps all the way back down to the finish line.  The route follows tarmac roads and bridle paths all the way to the base of Rivington Pike when the route leaves the cobbled road and you test your leg strength up the grassy slopes of the Pike.  The Pike can get a little muddy if we have had our typical British Spring of rain, rain and more rain so trail shoes can be a good choice.  Not only that, but as the Pike is very exposed to the infamous British weather so you may need a trusty windproof/waterproof jacket if the forecast is poor!

 

Transition/Start area:

The transition area is located on the opposite side of the road to the Leisure Centre, in Bridge Street.  It is within the car park of Mach-Aire Ltd.  You may leave an old pair of trainers at the exit from the pool but not obstructing the door.  All other race equipment must be left within the transition area.  There is no cycling in the transition area at any time. 

 

You will start by completing your swim, whereupon you will exit the pool and run around the outside of the leisure centre, over the zebra crossing and down to transition to collect your bike.  It is about 100m from the pool to transition.  Shoes are recommended as you will need to cross the pubic highway.  Once you have your bike you will then walk/run with your bike to the MOUNT LINE.  Do not mount your bike until you are over this line and take care whilst out on the road.  Upon returning from your bike loop, you must dismount before/at the same MOUNT LINE.  Once dismounted you can run/walk your bike back into transition and place it back on the rack.  DO NOT REMOVE YOUR HELMET UNTIL YOUR BIKE IS SAFELY RACKED.  All that is left is to change into your running gear, exit transition (following marshals’ instructions for safety), run like the wind and cross the finish line in style.

'The Endurance Store Clitheroe Pool Triathlon' April 19th 2015

Round 2 of the Epic North West Triathlon series for 2015 is the scenic Clitheroe Triathlon.  The Triathlon will take you round some of the most beautiful and challenging places in the Ribble Valley.  If you have a love of rolling country lanes, sneaky challenging climbs and views to die for then Clitheroe Triathlon is the event for you.  Competitors can sign up as a solo entrant or you can enter as a relay team of 3 and choose a discipline each.   

 

Address: 

Ribblesdale Swimming Pool,

Edisford Bridge,

Clitheroe,

BB7 3LA

 

Date & Time:

Sunday 19th April 2015 at 9am

 

The Triathlon Schedule:

07:00 – Registration & Transition opens

09:00 – Race start (first wave)

11:00 - Registration closes

11:20 - Transition closes

 
The Course:

Clitheroe Triathlon will consist of a 400m pool swim, a 30k road cycle and a 7k trail run.

 

The Swim

The swim will take place in Ribblesdale Swimming Pool.  Swimmers will start from 9am through to 1pm, based upon ability level.  You will complete 16 lengths of a 25m pool.  There will be 3 people in each lane at any given time.  When you enter, your estimated swim time will be used to calculate your swim start time.  Faster swimmers will start later in the morning and slower swimmers will start earlier.  You will be provided with a swim cap and there will be lane counting marshals, just in case you lose count. 

 

Due to the large number of competitors and the limited pool time, we have had to introduce a 15 minute cut off for completing the swim.  If you are still in the pool at 15 minutes you will be asked to stop swimming and continue on to the bike section.  You will NOT be disqualified and you can continue the race however you will not be able to complete all 16 lengths. 

 

You will need to arrive on poolside 15 minutes before your start time to be present for the compulsory briefing.

 

The Bike 

The bike route takes place on rural country lanes, is a scenic 30k in length and is made up of only 1 loop.  The loop is a challenging route weaving through the glorious countryside of Bashall Eaves before you return to back to transition.  It sounds nice enough but we have hidden a little snare along the route in the guise of Jeffrey Hill.  It is a short but sharp little beast and will try to zap any strength you might have out of your legs.  If you survive and make it to the top you will be rewarded with a nice downhill ride back to the transition area.

 

Your bike must be roadworthy and you must wear a recognised cycle helmet to take part in the event.  The event is non-drafting (you cannot ride directly behind another competitor to shelter from the wind) and you must not ride 2 abreast on the road.  The road is not closed to traffic and so you must follow the Highway Code at all times, riding responsibly. 

 

The route is adequately signed throughout to guide you and there will be marshals at critical locations.  The marshals cannot stop traffic and will not say if it is ‘clear to go’ so you must be responsible for your own safety and check for traffic.

 

The Run

The 8k run is an out and back and is largely on road and very flat. You will start by leaving the field and running along the riverside and across the bridge onto Edisford Road. At eh end of Edisford Road you will take a left turn onto Twitter Lane and follow the road until you reach the turnaround point where you will retrace your tseps back to the finish line. The feld can get a little muddy so trail shoes are recommeded but not compulsory.

 

Transition/Start area: 

The transition area is located in the playing field directly next to the swimming pool.  You may leave an old pair of trainers at the exit from the pool but not obstructing the door.  All other race equipment must be left within the transition area.  There is no cycling in the transition area at any time. 

 

From the start, you will complete your swim, exit the pool and run to transition to collect your bike.  You will then walk/run with your bike to the MOUNT LINE.  Do not mount your bike until you are over this line and take care whilst out on the road.  Upon returning from your bike loop, you must dismount before/at the same MOUNT LINE.  Once dismounted you can run/walk your bike back into transition and place it back on the rack.  DO NOT REMOVE YOUR HELMET UNTIL YOUR BIKE IS SAFELY RACKED.  All that is left is to change into your running gear, exit transition (following marshals’ instructions for safety), run like the wind and cross the finish line in style.

 

What do I need to enter the event?

  1. A bike which is in a roadworthy condition (mountain bike, road bike or hybrid is fine). You will be subject to a brief check and if found to be unsafe to ride, you will not be allowed to start.
