We're running a free course familiarisation morning on Sunday 31 May 2020 to introduce you to the courses. We'll lead a guided lap of the bike and run routes (optional) and can answer any questions you have then. Feel free to attend as much of the event as you like: either the bike, or the run, or both.

The aim of this event is to show entrants the course and answer questions as we ride and/or run around it at a leisurely pace. It does not include a swim. It will help familiarise you with race day and ease your concerns about nagging questions such as what to wear, how much kit to pack etc. All of us have had a first race day and we want to make easy and enjoyable for you. The emphasis is a friendly ride around the course, not a race, so please don't worry if you have concerns about keeping the pace.
We'll meet outside the main entrance to the Triangle Leisure Centre in Burgess Hill:
The Triangle Leisure Centre
Jane Murray Way (A273)
The event is organised by experienced triathletes from Mid Sussex Triathlon Club who will be able to give advice and guidance if you wish. It's a great opportunity to get some sound advice and help with those pre-race nerves. We like nothing better than talking about triathlons!
On the day
We will have a short introduction, then divide into groups of a similar ability: these groups will ride or run at the pace of the slowest member. It's not a race practice! The approximate timings will be as follows but please get in contact if you have any questions. There is plenty of parking at the Triangle.
