Road Secretary Keith Binney asks that all clubs supply a contact with their email address if this has changed since last season. It would help if clubs could give an approximate number of runners. Payment must be made for all numbers issued and names submitted (still £6 per number) at the end of the season. Results will be sent to club contacts and placed on the SYCAA website and John Schofield’s results site as soon as possible after each event.
Numbers must be pinned to the vest. Do not use triathlon waist bands as these make it difficult for the recorders to read the number as you finish.
Club vests must be worn otherwise you will not count towards your team’s result.
Important Safety Notice – No ear phones at all. You are on public roads. You must be able to hear Marshals instructions and approaching traffic. Failure to observe this rule will result in disqualification and removal from the results

Toilets in the pub …feel free to to stay for a drink afterwards. Parking is on the football field as in the past. DO NOT park on the course or on the road at the finish or in the pub car park. The start is on the road above the Trans Pennine Trail about a ten minute walk from the finish. The finish is on the road in an estate near the football pitch. Please do not stay near the finish, go into the field to meet other runners. Last year we caused a problem for local people and we do not want to annoy them again.

The car park at the Three Merry lads can be used if you are staying for a drink of food. Toilets are in the pub. Please respect other pub users.
