2010 sees the return of the popular Crystal Palace Triathlon, organised by Crystal Palace Triathletes (CPT). The race comprises a 750m swim in the 50m pool at the National Sports Centre, cycle nine laps of a closed circuit within the park (closed to traffic!) then run two laps around the park, finishing in the renowned athletics stadium.
Swim = 750m - 15 lengths in 50m pool
Bike = 20km - 9 laps of closed road circuit in park
Run = 5km - 2 laps in park
Competitors for the full Sprint event must be 17 or over on 31 December 2010.
Entries are also open for the CPT junior triathlon, to be held on the same day (after the adult race). Further details of the junior race categories are shown below.
We will operate a waiting list should the race fill before the closing date.
The race will start at 09:00 and run through to approximately 12:00, with start times allocated according to estimated swim times. The juniors, starting with the Youths working through to the TriStarts, will commence at approximately 12:30.
Please note we will be unable to accommodate requests to change start times as the smooth running of the event depends on everyone swimming at their given times with swimmers of a similar ability, allocated according to estimated swim times.

We've teamed up with Jambusters to make that easier. You can ask your fellow travellers for a contribution to costs and save some money on your own travel, or maybe don't bring a car at all. There are also links to various public transport and journey planner websites. If you are interested in car sharing please register on the Jambusters CPT car share website.
The fastest swimmers complete the distance in around 10 minutes, the average time is between 17-18 minutes and the slowest about 30 minutes. We don't mind how long you take but the race runs much more smoothly if everyone is swimming with others of a similar ability.

Junior event photography
Crystal Palace Triathletes does not want to prevent parents/carers or other spectators being able to take legitimate photographs or video footage of competitors. However, there is evidence that certain individuals will visit sporting events to take inappropriate photographs or video footage of children/young people. As a Club and a race organiser, it is essential that we should be vigilant about this possibility.
CPT will therefore, for the purposes of our event on 23 May 2010, have in place registration for those wishing to take photographs or video footage of children/young people. Please read the attached guidelines, complete the permit request form and bring to Registration with you on the day of the race, where an identification pass will be issued giving an individual the authority to take photographs or video footage of children/young people at the Crystal Palace Triathlon.
