Area 5 Triathlon Qualifier

Attached are the revised schedule and entry form for the Triathlon Qualifier which is at Ellesmere College on Sunday 18th February.

Due to recent fantastic entry numbers, and because Ellesmere College pool only has 4 lanes, the Wrinklie class has been removed and Beanie classes reduced to a Biathlon, without the swimming. This will allow organisers to cater for as many people as possible in the qualifier classes.

Beanies who have taken part in the last two events (Mold Oct 2017 and Mold Jan 2018), and are therefore collecting points for the Trio of Triathlons competition, will be given their swim score from Jan 2018 to add to throw and run scores from Ellesmere.

Any Beanies who have already sent £15 entry fee will receive a refund of £5 on the day. The other entries are unaffected.

Finally Penny had trouble with postal deliveries for the last event so when you post your entries can you please also send her a quick email, just summarising what you have posted. Then if it doesn’t arrive she can get back to you for the details.
