The annual Alnwick Sprint Tri will take place on Sunday May 3rd 2020.
Entries are coming in steadily – we now have 111 places taken out of a maximum of 175. The entry fee was unchanged from last year: £43 to BTF members and £46 to non-members plus a commission to ResultsBase of £2.58 and £2.76 respectively. The £3 difference is the cost of a day license. And whilst this cost has remained unchanged for several years, BTF have this year increased the cost from £3 to £4. (And allow event organisers to charge between £4 and £6. In order to encourage first timers we simply pass on the cost as is without any increase.) Strictly this means the entry fee for non-members should have increased on 1st January to £47. We have decided to delay the increase until 1st February – every little helps!
Entries are via Results Base at https://www.resultsbase.net/event/5241 There are a maximum of 175 entrants and we welcome both beginners and experienced triathletes with the only restriction being athletes must be aged 15 or over on 31st December 2020.
Course as last year: 16 lengths of the pool, 21km single loop bike ride out to Boulmer & back, and a slightly short 5km run including 4 loops of the Duchess High School on good quality tarmac.
