Swim Course: 10 lengths of the pool, using the Smart Start System (detailed below). Start and finish in the shallow end of the pool. Typically, the temperature at this event is around 28.5°C.
Transition: Located on grass, with great all-round spectating.
Smart Start System (snaked version)
After two successful years of this being implemented into our children's event, we will be introducing this into our 2022 Adults event. The Smart Start System works by adding a swimmer into the pool every 20-30 seconds, depending on your swim speed. This prevents congestion and allows you to have a better swim as those in front of you have settled into their pace so there is no scrapping for the lead.
This smart start system will be implemented with a snake style swim course, where each swimmer will swim up and down the lane, duck under the lane rope, and continue in each lane until they exit the pool.
The redevelopment at Calne Leisure Centre has been complete, there may be some changes to previous years with the race day registration location, but this will be provided in the lead up to the event. For those of you who have raced here previously, the building and its facilities have had a major uplift.
Calne Community Campus lies in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside. It has fantastic and well-equipped changing and sports facilities, which include a 25m swimming pool, ideal for triathlon training.
Suitable access to the sports grounds, direct from poolside, allows a great transition from swim to bike. The cycle leg takes you past Oldbury White Horse, one of the oldest in Wiltshire. Both the cycle and run route are out and back on a competitive friendly and fast course, which make it suitable for both seasoned athletes and complete beginners.
The Oldbury White Horse children’s triathlon events take place on the sports grounds making this very safe (traffic free) for children and ideal for family spectating.
