How to Get There

Dorney Lake is ideally placed, being within easy reach of London, Heathrow Airport, the M4 corridor and the M25, M40 and M3 motorways. It is also well served by the rail network.


Car Parking

On arrival to the site follow signs to the event car park. Race registration and transition area are a quick walk from the car park; a perfect distance for warming those running legs up!  Once you are parked up please make your way to the Boat House where you will find the registration team waiting for you.

You will need to bring all your race kit with you, as you will be racking your bike immediately after registering.

Event Registration

Event Registration is located within the 
Main Boathouse at the far end of the lake.

On arrival you will receive:

1  Bib number. To be worn on the front when you are running and back when you are cycling. It is recommended to wear an elastic race belt.

2   Depending on the number of competitors, you may be asked to have your event number written on your hand. 

3   Bike number. To be stuck on your bike seat post.

4   Helmet number. To be stuck on the front of your helmet.

5   Timing chip. This is supplied with a Velcro band to secure to your LEFT ankle.

Please note: It is advisable to arrive approximately 
60 minutes before your start time. This then gives 
you plenty of time to register, rack your bike and understand the layout of the event.
