The prize presentation will take place within 30min. of the finish of each wave. There will also be LOTS OF DRAW PRIZES throughout the day.
Kids Play Area:
The Peterborough Family Resource Centre will once again provide an amazing kids play area FREE OF CHARGE! It will include face painting, toys, entertainment & activities!
Schedule Of Events & Distances:
It is a good idea to be there approximately 1hr before your child's event. Some of the steps you will need to go through before your child's event are as follows. Race Kit Pick Up (if you didn't do it the day before), Body Marking, Bike Check In & Transition Set Up. This all takes time, don't be rushed and please respect that there may be other athletes racing so please be patient. The order of events is Swim/Bike/Run so all participants will start at the beach. The child's age is determined by how old they will be on December 31st 2009.
The course is 100% traffic free! The cycling takes place on a 10ft wide paved path surrounded by grass. There will be sections of the path where there will be 2 way traffic separated by pylons and tape. To view a picture of the path Click HERE
