There is plenty of parking at the Cafe. We ask anyone camping at the Activity Centre on Saturday night to cycle or walk over to the start in the morning.
Awards & Medals
There is a custom medal for all finishers.
In addition we have podium medals for the Top 3 overall in a number of categories. These will vary depending on entry numbers
Please note we operate a one prize per person policy. So if a vet is the overall winner they will get that medal & prize & the other Vet 40s will move up one place.
Will there be timing chips at your triathlons?
Do I need to be a member of a club to enter?
My kid(s) want to try triathlon. How do they get started?
Can I get a refund or defer my registration to next year?
Can I alter my registration between races on the same day (eg switch from the Sprint to the Supersprint triathlon)
How do age categories work and what is the minimum age to compete?
For events on open roads the minimum age is 15 or 17 for the longer Standard/Olympic distance events. However for our Pool-based triathlons the minimum age is 8 by 31st Dec in the year of competition or 5 for the Torbay Triathlons. And at our Donut Duathlon we have a mini duathlon with a bike or scoot followed by a run for children aged 3-7.
Just to confuse matters England Athletics (under whose rules we run most of our running events) use age on the day of the race instead of age at the end of the year.
Here is a summary of all the age groups (all ages are on 31st Dec of year of competition). Distances increase as children progress through TriStar. On our registration form just choose Tristar or Novice & you'll be automatically allocated to the correct category. The Novice events are aimed at children who are less confident swimmers or trying triathlon for the first time.
Mini Duathlon ages 3-7 (only at our Donut Duathlon)
Mini Tri age 5, 6 & 7 (only at our Tavistock & Torbay Triathlons)
