It is important that you know the BTF rules that govern our race. Rules have changed recently and you should familiarise yourself with the changes. Please look at the BTF Competition Rules page

Cancellation, Withdrawal & Refund Policies

Please note our cancellation policy covers three scenarios:

  1. the Discretionary Cancellation Policy where 7Oaks Triathlon Club (“we” “our” or the “organiser”) decide to cancel because we believe the 7Oaks triathlon due to take place on 28th April 2024 (the “Event”) would raise insufficient funds to meet our costs;
  2. the Forced Cancellation Policy, where we are forced to cancel for reasons beyond our control; and
  3.  the Withdrawal Policy where you, the entrant, choose to cancel, transfer or defer.

Please note that in all scenarios all refund amounts will be paid net of the Active processing fee incurred on booking unless specified.

Discretionary Cancellation

You understand and agree that the organiser reserves the right to cancel the Event at its discretion (Discretionary Cancellation) at any date up to 31st March 2024.

Forced Cancellation

You understand and agree that the organiser reserves the right to cancel the Event due to circumstances outside of our control including but not limited to adverse weather, accidents, orders by statutory authorities (including Covid type restrictions), public disorder, or for any other reason that would affect the safety and security of Event participants and/or spectators (“Forced Cancellation”) In the event of Forced Cancellation there will not be an option for the entrant to defer their entry, but a refund will be paid as follows:

General FAQs

Bib numbers and start times will be issued via e-mail about a week before the event.

A list of start times will be posted here before the event

The first swimmer will set off at 6:30am.

We take into account a range of factors when determining the run start times to ensure the best experience for everyone in our event. If we know in advance we may be able to accommodate such a request.

The essential kit is a trisuit (or t-shirt and shorts), a bike in roadworthy condition with a puncture repair kit, a water bottle, a bike helmet, bike shoes and running shoes

Your race number can be attached to a race belt which is worn around your waist.  You would put it on after the swim when you are in transition with the race number showing at the back for the bike leg and then simply slide it round to the front for the run leg.  Most triathletes find it faster and more convenient to use a race belt instead of having different race numbers pinned on to clothing.

You are responsible for fixing a puncture on the bike course and should be carrying a puncture repair kit.  However, there are marshals on the course who will try to help you if you are unable to do it yourself.

The Bike Warehouse, our local cycle shop and one of our race sponsors, will have a stand near the transition area for last minute bike mechanicals and basic kit repairs.

There’s a bit of everything on the run - packed earth (or mud depending on the weather), grass, tarmac and tracks.

There will be a water station on the run course

There are no toilets on the course. Toilets are available at the Leisure Centre

No! These items are not allowed in any phase of the race. Please refer to the BTF Rules.

Yes.  Paramedics will be available.  One unit will be based at the Leisure Centre and one unit will be mobile on the back of a motorbike.
