Torbay Team Relay
08 October 2022
Our Olympic format mixed Team Relay Triathlon returns for the end of the season. Check out GTN‘s excellent video of our first event at the bottom of this page.
The event starts with two waves of the slowest teams. Faster teams start towards the end as a snake start (this ensures slower team don’t finish long after the fastest teams). After the swim it’s a short run to transition to complete four bike laps of the Velopark ride on smooth tarmac. You finish with a 2km parkland run that ends at the handover zone at the back of the pool where you hand on to your team mate. It’s a snake start swim for all subsequent team members.
You will need 4 competitors per team with a minimum of 2 female members. All male teams or 75 percent male teams are permitted and we will publish results for them but won’t be eligible for prizes. The field is limited to 42 teams to ensure a great race for all.
