Important Notes
The Triathlon follows the route of the Montgomery Canal. The cycling section is along cycleway-standard towpath. The walking section is generally flat but some lengths are unsuitable for wheelchairs. There are several stiles, tree roots and possible livestock en route.

There are five road crossings for cyclists and four for walkers – all controlled by marshals – please listen to their instructions. Canoes will have to be carried round or floated down 2 locks – volunteers will be available to help.

First Aiders will be available throughout the event. Toilets will be available at the Start in Newtown, Belan Wharf, Crowther Hall Lock and at Schoolhouse Bridge.
