The WMD Classic 2017 - 16 July 2017
Entries will open on 1st October at 10:00
This event will consist of three separate races, a sprint, a classic and a half iron distance triathlon.
With race HQ based at Weymouth College, this is the ideal location for all of the family.
It is close to the Weymouth Sealife Centre and is within 400 meters of the very secure transition area, not to mention the beach. There are plenty of facilities, café, toilets and parking all within 200 meters of your bike. There is something for everyone at this event whether you are taking part or spectating, this one should be a must for your 2016 race diary.
The swim will be an open water affair in the beautiful blue waters of Weymouth Bay.
The rolling cycle course will be a flat’ish (as best we can do in Dorset!) fast one for all three events with the route taking in some breathtaking scenery. The bike route for the Half Iron course will be taking place on mainly long flatfish roads.
The run will be a short blast around the Lodmoor nature reserve for the sprint and Classic and just ever so slightly longer for the half.
All three events will have some excellent prizes at the end for the top three males and females and the top age grouper in each category.
Race mementos will be our exclusive and much sought after BustinSkin t’s, custom medals and designer Buff headwear.
All three events will be chip timed by FullOnSport
Free parking all day at Weymouth College – Registration will take place in Transition at GreenHill Tennis Courts. Please make sure you are registered at least 45 minutes prior to your event, late registrations will not be accepted and you may have your number reused.
