Sunday 30 August – Swim Start Times for Hampton Ladies Triathlon
Swim Start times cannot be adjusted prior to race morning.
There will not be a mass race briefing on race day this year so I have recorded a short video just to go through some of the main points of the race. We also aim to hold a Q&A Webinar on Thursday 27 August at 7.30pm (more details to follow) so that you can ask questions about the race and race day. I am no Stephen Colbert but I did my best with the video – turn the video off and just listen to the audio with my odd accent.
Due to physical distancing requirements this year we have created a new format for the swim portion of the triathlon. The swim will now be a 250m swim in a Sepentine swim format – now before everyone floods my inbox with “what is a Serpentine swim?” we had a few volunteers come out and run through the swim for us. Please take the 5 minutes to watch the swim video below and you will see how the flow of this works – its very simple and efficient and we will have no more than 5 people in the pool at any one time.
Very simply we have 1 swimmer start in lane 1. They swim up and down lane 1, then under the lane rope to start their swim up and down lane 2 and follow this process all the way through the 5 lanes for a 250m swim.
We have had a few days to reflect after the Hampton Ladies Triathlon weekend and what a weekend it was. From the great food at the pasta party as well as the wonderful guest speakers to the amazing weather all weekend, to the energy and excitement from all you wonderful ladies, plus our amazing volunteers and officials.
Its amazing to see all your smiling faces all over the course especially when you cross the finish line.
Thank you for supporting the race and each other and we hope to see you back with us next year. Good luck with the rest of your season wherever that may take you.

I was really nervous about all the details of transitions and finding my way around the courses and I needn’t have been because the whole event was impeccably organised and the volunteers were all absolutely brilliant. I can only imagine the amount of work that goes into pulling off an event of that size so seamlessly. All the support and encouragement from the volunteers and other participants made it a fantastic experience”.
