Our club has provisionally booked teams in to this year's Bedford Relays on Sun 25th July.
WE ARE NOW LOOKING FOR DEFINITES, AND FOR PAYMENT
We don't often get a chance to race as a team, but when we do it is normally a bit of a larf. This event is particularly relaxed and, crucially, the event T-shirt is pretty good.
It is set to be huge this year with over 100 teams, although of course it will be a bit different to usual thanks to the ongoing covid-19 restriction.
Entry is open to ALL members of KLTC, irrespective of experience and ability. We try to mix the teams up so that everyone finishes at roughly the same time.
The minimum age is 15 on the 31st Decemebr, 2021.
Logistically, it is an early start so we all rock up and register on the morning and we have lunch at a local pub on the way home. It is also possible to camp onsite on the Sat evening.
Race Format: Swim 750m: Bike 20k : Run 5k.
A team consists of 3 athletes, who each complete the swim as a relay, then the bike as a relay and then the run relay; all three members of the team will complete each discipline in turn before the team moves on to the next discipline. If you are generally slow or nervous in transition, this race format is perfect for you and even adds to the fun.
Both the Swim and the run are in Box End park, making for a great spectator experience as well as great racing. The bike course is out on the local roads with some fast sections and the odd hill to get you out of the saddle.
Full event details can be found on the GoBeyondSport website and photos from the last few years can be found on our facebook pages: 2018 and 2017. There will be a FB event page created to deal with the nitty-gritty details.
