TRY-athlon Frequently Asked Questions

TRY-athlon - Frequently Asked Questions

How do I reserve my place?

You can reserve your place via skiddle. Once we have received confirmation of your reservation from skiddle, we will contact you via email to complete the event registration form to return to us before the event. You will not need the skiddle ticket with you on the day.

I haven’t received an event registration form?

We aim to send these out as soon as possible but please allow up to 5 working days for the form to be sent.

I have not reserved a place - can I still enter?

All events have maximum participant numbers, once reservations are full then the event will be closed to new participants. If the event is not closed we may welcome participants who haven’t reserved a place – these participants must register on the day.

How do I reserve places for more than 1 participant? For example, a family.

We require each person to be book their reservation separately, you are able to use the same email address if necessary.

Do I have to stay with my child?

Yes.

Whilst we fully accept our duty of care and will do everything we can to minimise the risk of injury and harm to all participants, it is parents/guardians who ultimately have responsibility for the welfare of their children.

TRY-swim – Any child under 8 wishing to take part needs to be accompanied in the pool by an adult. Any child between the age of 8 & 16 must be accompanied to and from the
TRY-athlon venues and a responsible adult must remain in attendance for the duration of the event.   

TRY-cycle – On the led rides children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult, children between the age of 8 & 16 must be a competent cyclist – this will be decided by the Ride Leader on the day. The spin bikes are only suitable for anyone over the age of 8.
