The Coquet River Sprint Triathlon is a new event replacing the popular Alnwick Sprint Triathlon. It is organised entirely by volunteers from Alnwick Triathlon Club and the club is very proud to provide an enjoyable event that caters to the complete range of the performance spectrum, newbies & experienced athletes alike. There is limited parking at The Braid, please car share The swim is in the River Coquet which is tidal. Expect the temperature to be similar to the North Sea. Wet suits are very likely to be compulsory and if not, are strongly recommended. The bike leg is on public non-closed roads and the Highway Code takes precedence. In accordance with BTF rules, we will DQ participants guilty of 'breaking road traffic regulations' or 'dangerous conduct or riding'. There will be local guidance clarifying examples of actions that will attract a DQ and this will include: (1) crossing central white lines on a single carriageway road; (2) not signalling when turning right at a roundabout; (3) not being ready to brake when navigating road junctions and roundabouts. The run is on a mixture of grass, track and pavement
