Welcome to our 10th Hampton Ladies Triathlon scheduled for Sunday June 10 2018 based in and around the Hampton Community Pool. If you have ever thought about registering for a Tri or a Duathlon in the past but were a little intimidated then this is the race for you. We hope to have over 300 ladies taking part, and it could be your first opportunity to dip your toes in the world of Triathlon or Duathlon. Its a fun, no-pressure environment full of camaraderie, stories and excitement but also a competitive race for the faster ladies out there and we will have a live band playing during the morning beside the finish line to help celebrate your accomplishment. Our Triathlon has sold out for the last 2 years so please register soon to guarantee your spot.

Packet Pick-up - from 7.00am at Hampton Community Pool
Triathlon Wave 1 start time - 8.00am
Duathlon Start - 9.00am
Our race starts of with a 400m (16 length) outdoor pool swim (pool is heated, no wetsuits allowed or needed), followed by a 20k bike ride on an out and back course into the Hampton and Bloomfield countryside. Its an out and back route so you will receive lots of encouragements from your fellow competitors. Once back in transition you will set off on your 2 lap, out and back 5k run course which is 100% traffic free through the rolling Dutch Point Trail system. At the end of the run you will cross the finish line to shouts of encouragement from fellow runners, spectators and finishers alike.
Junior / Youth Tri
We will also have a Junior / Youth wave with a maximum of 10 spots for our 14 / 15 year old age-group athletes over a shorter distance of 400m swim - 10k bike and 2.5k run at a reduced price of $39.00. This will be the first wave of the morning at roughly 8.00am.
Our Duathlon features a 2.5k run and then follows the same bike route as the Triathlon before finishing up with a final 2.5k run and the Du has been growing in popularity over the last few years. For those non-swimming ladies this is a unique opportunity to take part in your first Duathlon.
We promote our event to Novices and those ladies who are interested in taking part in their first Triathlon / Duathlon but we also welcome those more experienced athletes who can use the race as a sharpener for the forthcoming season so everyone is welcome. You must be 16 by 31 December in the year of competition to be eligible for the Sprint Triathlon.
Please note that due to problems in the past we will not be able to hold entries over for future years or issue refunds. All registrations are non-transferable, non-refundable and must not be sold on without the prior consent of the Race Director.
Please e-mail me your estimated 400m Swim time at least 2 weeks prior to the race so that I can create my start list. Please be as accurate as possible as these timings have an effect on the flow of the race. Allow all morning and early afternoon for the race and please note that if you ask us to move your swim time it has an effect on the other girls you are swimming with and upsets the flow of the race.
Please note - No deferrals after 01 May 2017 - sorry, no exceptions. Registrations must not be sold on or transferred to another athlete without the prior consent of the Race Director.
