Having laid on a number of sprint distance races at Thorpe Park we are pleased to announce that we will be back in 2018! The Park has proved to be a fantastic triathlon venue and we will be hosting two sprint distance races on: Sunday 3 June and Sunday 16 September 2018 and an Olympic distance race on Sunday 15 July.
The relay is ideal for first timers looking for an introduction to Triathlon. A team of 3 consists of one swimmer, one cyclist and one runner with each team member handing over their timing chip (the baton) at the end of each leg. This means you only have to tackle one of the three legs to a triathlon.
Although the Relay format is a fantastic introduction to triathlon, there will also be experienced athletes battling it out for the win. Whether you are taking part for the first time, or a regular athlete looking to participate in this team event our event is sure to be one of the highlights in your 2018 sporting calendar.
The Zone3 swim is a one lap 750m course which takes place within Fleet Lake. With good visibility in the water, and some great vantage points for spectators, it offers a fantastic opening leg to the triathlon. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A WETSUIT COMPULSORY SWIM.
The bike is a one lap 21km course for the sprint distance race and a 40km course for the Olympic distance race which heads out of the park onto the surrounding local roads.
The 5km run consists of two laps for the sprint distance race navigating around the lake on a flat, fully tarmaced path. The final section to the finish line takes competitors right through the centre of Thorpe Park.
