Run

The run will take place fully within Pavilion Gardens.

Maps of the race route will be clearly displayed at the Race Registration and each wave will have a race briefing so everyone will know where they are going. Children need to count their own laps. Rubber bands will be handed out on each lap to help children keep count.

Spectators

This is a very spectator friendly venue. There is a pool viewing area and the run can be easily seen from within the park. Please stay off the race course which will be clearly marked with tape. There are many non-tri related activities in the Park and Pavilion Gardens so bring the whole family for a fun day out.... Please note that this race is meant to encourage children to enjoy competitive sport. Parents are expected to cheer and clap, not bellow angrily or argue with marshals! Outside assistance is not allowed, and may result in your child being disqualified.

Who Can Take Part?

This race is aimed at encouraging children to give something new a try as well as offering more experienced racers another event to hone their skills before the tri season starts. If you can cover the swim distance without sinking (!) you can do this race. No special equipment is needed: you just need a swimsuit, t-shirt, a pair of trainers and a smile. Some participants will come from the local swim club and will be lightening quick in the pool.... so you can catch them on the run! Many others will be pleased to just finish. Whatever time you do, you can be sure of a huge cheer when you cross the line.

Photography

The race is run under British Triathlon Federation (BTF) rules which do allow photographs to be taken during the race. Anyone wishing to take photographs will need to register their details at Race Registration. Buxton Swimming & Fitness Centre does not permit photography within the building so children cannot be photographed while swimming.

The swim can be viewed from the pool viewing area. There are vending machines in the foyer selling hot and cold drinks and snacks. Changing facilities, lockers and hot showers are available for participants. The transition area is under cover so towels and trainers will stay dry if it should happen to rain.

The run takes place in The Pavilion Gardens, a wonderful 23 acre park with many historic and cultural highlights. There is a large selection of cafes, restaurants, gift shops and the Pavilion Arts Centre right next to the race route. The park also has adventure play areas, so why not make a day of it and stay around after the race? Please check out Buxton Pavilion Gardens' website for what is going on that weekend.
