2010 is Jubilee Pool?s 75th Anniversary and Mounts Bay Harriers are pleased to announce that the first Jubilee Pool Aquathlon is being held on the opening Saturday ? 29 May 2010 at 6pm. Registration is from 5pm.
The entry fee has been kept the same as the two previous years – ?7 for entries in advance or ?8 on the night. (Competitors have to be aged 13 years or over as at 31/12/10 for British Triathlon insurance purposes.)
For those of you who haven?t taken part in this event before, it consists of approx 200 metre swim around the triangle of Jubilee Pool and approx 2 mile run along the Promenade to Tolcarne, Newlyn and back. It is a great event for novices who have little water confidence as swimming around the edge of the pool means that there is a handrail there to grab onto at any time. Also the run is flat ? an added bonus!
Competitors are set off on the swim at 30 second intervals, which means that those who hate being last are never at the back of the field. Quickest times are just under 13 minutes to the slowest of just under 30 minutes. It is a great way to get into a multi-discipline event.
Presentations for prize winners at the Yacht Inn afterwards.
We look forward to seeing you on the night ? just turn up and take part!
