Registration & Briefing Instructions Registration Times: Sunday 07:00 Briefing Time will be 10 minutes before your wave start. Please be on pool side 10 mins before your wave start. Race numbers and timing chips will be collected from the registration desk on race day. You do not receive anything by post. Details of allocated bib numbers will be available online prior to the event and will also be displayed in the registration area at the venue. Do not open a race envelope unless it has your name and number on it. Attached members must show a valid licence at registration or purchase our day insurance. Competitors must attend the race briefing on the day. Information on the course and rules relative to competitor safety and the race will be outlined.
Timing Transponders Please attach your timing transponder (MYLAPS ProChip) firmly to your left ankle with the strap provided as soon as you open your race envelope (chip fitting instructions). This will ensure that all finish results (as well as splits and lap times) are collected by the system. Timing chips will be collected in the finish funnel or marquee immediately at the end of the race. Please return your timing chip as soon as you finish (even if you do not complete your race). Every race envelope is scanned with a timing chip in it – if you lose yours or leave it in your car, there are no replacements so you will not get your times and splits from your race. Lost and unreturned timing chips will be invoiced at £75 each, as part of the terms and conditions of your race entry.
