Safety Kayakers

The World Triathlon Series is coming back to Leeds on Sat 10th & Sun 11th June 2017

The World Triathlon Series is coming back to Leeds in just a few weeks’ time (Sat 10th & Sun 11th June) and we’re currently recruiting the last few safety kayakers to join our water safety team for the event, in particular the Sunday morning shift (06:00 – 11:00), where 5,000 participants will be taking to the water for the first leg of their triathlon.

What’s required?
We’re recruiting a team of 40 safety kayakers to support the races on the morning of Sunday 11th June. The role of the safety kayaker is to supervise the participants as they complete the 1.5km open water swim at Roundhay Park, Leeds.

We do ask that kayakers are of a suitable standard to carry out the role, ideally meeting the following criteria:

  • Minimum of 16 years of age
  • Competent paddler – of at least 2 star standard
  • Able to provide your own boat & kit
  • If you hold one of the qualifications listed here it would be an advantage

Event Details
WTS Leeds is an early start, but the nice thing about the swim is that it’s the first discipline and so it’s also finished first. Please find below some outline information about the event:

Venue: Roundhay Park, Leeds
Timings: 06:00 – 11:00
Pay: £60 per kayaker
