The wave start times will be allocated based on your age & gender, unless you select the ‘mates-wave’ option on the entry form to be in a mixed wave with friends or family members.
What is a mates-wave? If you are keen to race alongside your friends, or go head-to-head with a family member just like Alistair and Jonny, you can request a ‘mates wave’ when entering. Simply choose a code-word unique to you and your friend(s) and make sure you all enter the same code-word on the entry form. You must all be entered into the same category and distance. There will only be a limited number of mixed ‘mates-waves’ so enter early to avoid disappointment.
