"IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR GATORADE BIG HALF & TRENTHAM TRIATHLONWe have now been informed by Staffordshire Police that the two coned filter lanes for the traffic lights on the course cannot be used. Although it was originally agreed and risk assessed, there has been an objection raised to the use of the cones and we can only follow the instruction of the Police and the Highways department. We are therefore operating a simple stop when there is a red light and we will record the exact time you are held up and deduct it from your overall time on the day.Although you may feel that stopping for a short period may be a disadvantage in breaking your rhythm, there are benefits to it also in that you get a quick breather, chance to take on fluids and food in an upright position, re organise bottles or yourself in a safe manner and stretch out any tight muscles you might have. With that in mind whether you get stopped at any red lights or not, you can use it to your advantage to make up for the break in rhythm.Look forward to seeing you on race day!"
SA I think that means you can smoke at the lights and get the time taken off?

Must remember to pack them in the bento box
They are also looking for marshals. You receive a goody bag, £10 for travel, T-shirt and pair of sunglasses.
Look on website for details and contact, believe they are desperate for help.
Just read the cut offs - think I might be struggling to make the bike but i guess I'll be so dizzy after lap after lap after lap it won't make thst much difference
I think Liverbird is marshalling.
I would help out but I'm trying to take photos so people will benefit in other ways.

You not doing it now Nam?
*just passing by, honest*
I was on the way to see the in-laws for Sunday lunch, driving up the Eccleshall Rd (A519), and saw a couple of pirates, mid-cycle. Gave a wave and a shout - hope it all went well guys
