PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE COURSE PRIOR TO THE EVENT
Please also be aware that bike or equipment theft is not covered by the event insurance. If you would like insurance, British Triathlon have teamed up with Yellow Jersey Insurance.
The course starts and finishes at Sportspace Hemel Hempstead.
Follow the yellow signs. Obey the Highway Code. Competitors will not be allowed to start without a fastened helmet. Reminder:
during the race do not put on or take off your helmet unless your bike is on the racking. Drafting will not be permitted. You must walk your
bike between transition and the mount/dismount line. Proceed with caution as you enter and exit the Centre entrance road as there may
be other cyclists, runners and cars in this area.
It is a RIGHT HAND TURN out of the sports centre and a LEFT HAND TURN after approx. half a mile. It is well signposted and marshalled,
but you need to be alert for signs and traffic. Please note marshals are not able to stop traffic.
There are a couple of small hills, be careful if it is wet or raining. At various points along the course, marshals will be
there to advise but have no power to stop or control traffic – you are responsible for your own safety.
The cycle route is highlighted in yellow below. If you are doing 8km, it is one circuit, if you are doing 16km, it is two circuits.
