Competitors will get the chance to race against the 2009 Formula 1 World Champion and other triathletes not once, but twice in one day! The preliminary heats in the morning will be over Super Sprint distance of 200m lake swim, 10km cycle and 2.5km run.
Fastest qualifying triathletes will then go on to compete in the final with distances of 400m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run. Everyone else will get the chance to compete for the wooden spoon in afternoon heats over the Super Sprint distance.
For competitors in the Team Challenge event, each team member completes one discipline of the triathlon before handing over the timing chip to their team mate. They will also race twice over the Super Sprint distance with the fastest average time winning the coveted Team Challenge Trophy designed by EPM Technology, Derby.
The morning race waves are split into ladies, mens and Team Challenge waves, but each wave is completely random in terms of age and ability; waves start at 09:00 until approx 10:20. Times are then ranked and the fastest ladies and men compete in the afternoon Grand Final (12.30pm and 3.00pm) over the Sprint Distance; there is a lot to race for with a fantastic top ten prize purse at stake. Everyone else races again to try and better their morning time and to compete for the Wooden Spoon trophy in the Super Sprint Distance (afternoon waves start at 1.30pm).
Barnardo’s supports children and young people facing many different challenges, including looking after an ill or disabled family member, breaking free from abusive relationships and leaving care.
The charity has grown dramatically over the past 150 years and now has 996 services across the country, and last year supported 248,000 children, young people and families across the UK.
Our parenting support gave Charlotte, a young parent and also a carer for her disabled mum, the confidence to bond with her son. Our specialist services helped 13 year old Karen break free of her abuser and access mental health support. Our support for care leavers helped 17 year old Nathan start an apprenticeship, budget effectively and live independently and happily in his community
We are delighted to be the beneficiary charity for the Jenson Button Trust Triathlon, which will be crucial in transforming the lives of more children and young people like Charlotte, Karen and Nathan.
