• Registration will open at 7.15pm and close promptly at 7.50pm. The first wave will start at 8.00pm.
• This is a British Triathlon Federation (BTF) affiliated event and will have a BTF race official at each event. This also means that SLSC members can join the BTF for a reduced fee.
• The race is a 1km swim (11 lengths of Tooting Bec Lido) followed by a ~6.4km run around Tooting Bec Common (3 laps of a sign-posted circuit). A maximum of 100 people can take part – we typically have 2 waves.
• Certificates and medals are awarded to male and female first, second and third place in each age category for each race. If you would like a personal certificate with your time on we will be happy to make electronic copies for you to print off at your convenience.
• Series Winner(s):

• Age ranges are:
As with all SLSC events we are always in need of volunteers to help us make our events safe and fun. Being an SLSC volunteer is a great way to meet new people, put names to faces at the Lido and generally have a good time. If you can spare an hour or two on race days please do come and help our Aquathlon Team with time-keeping and marshalling the run route.
