Some key updates:
- Car parking. As you may know Worcester University now own the site, hence its name change to Lake side Campus and no longer Top Barn Activity Centre. As part of this transition it is University Policy to charge for parking on their sites. It is beyond our clubs control but there will be a car parking fee of £3 per vehicle on race day. Hopefully you will still agree that this is still a good value event. If you could bring exact change on race day that would be helpful to uni staff on the day.
- Wave times. There will be more than one wave, at the present time there will be two waves. The first wave will start at 8:00am second wave at 08:45. You will be informed of your wave time in the week before the race.
- Race information can be found via our clubs website and our clubs facebook page. Links are below.
Thanks again and good luck with your training and preparation.http://www.worcestertriclub.co.uk/races/events/worcester-top-barn-triathlons
