How many people can I have in my team?
A Monster Triathlon team can be composed of anything between 2 and 7 people. Accommodation is only provided for one team member each night so if you wish to accompany your team members on the journey you will have to make separate arrangements to do so.

Full monster and Swim competitors need to arrive at Loch Ness before 10am on Sunday 17th September
Team members completing separate bike legs will need to arrive before 6pm on the evening before their leg.
Runners taking part need to be at the start point in Windsor before 8am on Saturday 23rd September.
Safety & Emergency
The Event Team includes medics, who are on hand to help you with scrapes and bruises of all sizes. They also know all the nearest hospitals all along the route.
Before you set off on each day the event, you will be given a briefing - to make sure you enjoy a healthy and safe day.
Do I need insurance?
We highly recommend that riders take out suitable insurance to cover themselves and their bikes during, and in the lead, up to the event. If riders are suitably insured, they will be covered should they have to pull out for any reason and we will provide the necessary documentation to give to their insurers to be reimbursed the entry fee. We cannot personally give advice on this but your insurers should be able to advise you on suitable cover.
What should I pack?
As with all outdoor events, it’s wise to dress for all eventualities!
As well as your favourite swimming, cycling and running gear, we advise that you pack enough changes of clothes for your chosen number of days, towel, sun cream, hats, insect repellent, comfortable footwear.
Do I need a Wetsuit?
Wetsuits are compulsory for the swim element of the event.
What if the event is cancelled - when and how will we be informed?
If the event is cancelled, for whatever reason, you will be contacted by email as soon as possible. Depending on when the decision is made to cancel, you will be sent a second email two days before the event date.
If the event is cancelled less than 10 days before the scheduled first day (due to weather or any other factor beyond our control), you will also be emailed.
You will receive a full refund of your ticket price - less any payment transaction fee (which is kept by a third party).
