  1. Lots of people wear tri suits – so you can make a quick transition to the bike. Others wear swim trunks/costume and put cycling clothes on top. It’s up to you, but please bear in mind there is no nudity in transition and your top needs to be covered when on the bike/run.

  2. Hello, just entered myself for race 1 of the series, very excited! do i wear my wetsuit for the swim or is the pool a warm one?

    🙂

  3. Hi there – can’t access the Entry Forms! click thru to blank page!….is it me or just a glitch on the site? Probably me!

  4. Just returned from my first Thames Turbo Series Sprint Tri. 10/10 for organisation. 10/10 for being friendly. Would do it again in a jiffy if a couple of Stag doos and a Wedding didnt get in the way dammit!

    Recommend it to any one, first timers of seasoned veterans.

  5. I am a total beginner but would love to try out the Sprint next year. I am a strong but relatively slow swimmer. Is it possible to enter but near the back of the field so that I don’t obstruct faster swimmers ?

    My last “triathlon” was at Hampton twenty one years ago when I was 16. We did the run around the pool and car park,the bike on the local roads and finished with the swim !

      We are very used to having beginners such as yourself, welcome back to Triathlon. Our start order is based on your accurate 400m swim time (not the 426m race distance), you’ll need to provide this when you enter. You can update this also nearer the race time, so don’t worry. You’ll be placed with swimmers of the same ability as yourself. Everyone is welcome.

  6. Dear Heather. I would like my two boys to enter the June 2010 race at LEH. Jamie is 9, and Chad turns 8 on March 11th. I would also like to enter the April Triathlon (along with a friend of mine Maria Collingridge. I did complete one before at Thames Turbo about 5 years ago. How do I make these race entries? Many thanks. Elaine

  7. Hi, my new girlfriend completed a few triathlons last year and she has convinced me to have a go this year…with the Sprint race in April being the ideal starter race for me. How do I apply online…and can I register for the forum to pickup some hints/tips?

    Me and my girlfriend are very competitive…neither of us wants to lose!

    1. Billy, You get a medal in our children’s races, not in the adult ones. We do however have a pretty unique/special race memento for everyone again this year. We also have a lotto at prizegiving for everyone present whose raced where you can win some pretty good prizes.

    1. Registration and transition will close promptly at 06:45am, and the first swimmer is in the water at 7.
      Please arrive as close to 6 as you can to register.

  8. How do i change my race times, i’ve entered it thinking it was a 40k bike and 8k run so the times need to be halved :-/??

  9. Hi, just home having finished my first ever sprint at the thames turbo race 1. great fun, very well organised and thx for all the support. maybe a few more toilets next time?

    One question I have which is no doubt answered somewhere, but can’t find it – the times listed for the results – which legs are the transition times added to? thanks.

    1. The timing points are:
      Swim & transition – taken as you leave the car park
      Bike Stop – then the 7 minute free time
      Registration Hut – timing restarts on your way in to transition with your bike
      Finish – in Bushy Park

  10. As a novice, I’m debating whether it’s worth using clipless pedals or not. With the 7 minute non compete zone timed for walking back to t2 or cycling?

    1. The 7 minute non compete zone is designed for riding back to the pool. You have to dismount at the traffic lights to cross the road into the pool, you can then remount once you are well past the gates of the pool.

  11. I’d like to thank the organisers and the marshalls for a fantastic event today. Also, a thanks to the very fit triathletes that encouraged me at various points in their races too. The thought was appreciated.

  12. Thanks from me too for the wonderful event yesterday – despite the cold! And as a beginner I really enjoyed it!! Fantastic organising and such nice marshalls cheering along the way that were even pronouncing my name correctly! I was VERY impressed!

    All these snaps along the way – when/where will the piccies be posted?

    Thanks again – and here is to the next one!

  13. Have just booked for Thames Turbo event on 31st August but cannot find any details on the exact details/format for the day through the web site. Can you help?
