Check your age category and group.

Register and get your number perma-marked here…

…and here.

Find the transition area. There are lots of marshalls around to help.

Get the talc out.

Lay out your top, towel and trainers (liberally talced).

Listen to the briefing.

When the time comes, join your group poolside. Manage your nerves.

Swim a few lengths under the watchful eye of the lane officials.

Go to transition. Forget the towel. Just pull on your trainers…

…and your top.

Run a few laps; get cheered and clapped at.

Hope your mum doesn’t act all embarrassing at the finish.

Collect your medal and have a little sit down…

… and a piece of cake. Or three.
