Kit List

There are no specific requirements for this race but the vast majority of people use full wetsuits (rather than short sleeve/ sleeveless wetsuits). The trail on the run is not technical so normal running trainers are fine.


It is a great event for spectators (especially if you come the night before and enjoy the camping) and there are ample opportunities to see the athletes all the way around. If you are driving on the day please be cautious of the fact that there may already be cyclists out on the road!


On Your Marks are an awesome organiser set up in memory of a budding 14 year old triathlete who died of meningitis - they're always very keen for volunteers and you can reach them at [email protected]

  • Did the Middle in 2018

    I think the organisers should've said the swim MAY be non wetsuit. I brought mine with me just in case but lots didn't. There wasn't much support from Marshalls on the bike route, one on a tight corner sat in his car the whole time literally paying no attention to the race. Another I told a competitor needed assistance, the Marshall didn't seem to know what to do. To top it all off the run was over a mile short? Couldn't we have added an extra lap?
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    Very late start meant family hanging around longer also messed with pre race nutrition. Transition not very organized with regards to bike racking. Very poor.
  • Did the Olympic in 2018

    The note about it being a non wet suit swim was confusing and if you had said it 'may' be a non wet suit swim then all those who didn't bring theirs may have done, I did have mine.
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    Two minor niggles. Firstly I was wave 6 and this is the first time that quite late in getting going. Secondly website made it quite clear This is a non wetsuit event hence I did not bring the wetsuit. However these were allowed on the morning as temperatures dropped to acceptable levels. The website should have stated that this may have been a possibility. Otherwise great event again
  • Did the Middle in 2018

    Terrible. Avoid at all costs.I feel this event was in a lovely setting and has the potential to be great for spectators but was really let down by a lack of organisation, some of which was frankly dangerous. I hope this event improves in future. Ill start with the worst points first. Dangerous course o Bike water station on busy junction (not safe to stop)o T1 exit/T2 entrance DANGEROUS on site junction Parking barrier up for some athletes, down for others Campervans and cars trying to enter/exit at the same time Not controlled by marshals o Run course not cordoned off. BBQs and cricket/football matching being played on the courseo Not enough marshals Athlete collapsed at finish Safety officer marshal didnt notice (she was by herself at the finish). Once she was notified didnt get any water for the athlete. Lack of organisationo Marshals not prepped sufficiently to direct athletes o A marshal on a bike led the second swimmer to transition, but not the first. (not ready in time). o One boat and one kayak for entire lake (not enough to cover the entire swim field when it inevitably spread out)o Elastic bands to count laps only
  • Did the Middle in 2018

    Dont do it. Worst event i have ever been to. Really poorly organised and communication was pathetic. No triathlon /cycling event signs up marshalls letting riders go past turning point without stopping them. Same non descript swim bike run medal to all participants whether you did the aqua bike or the middle distance no age group prizes no announcments run was 8 laps = 11miles they could have easily said 9 laps to take it up to correct distance. You had to run through crowds of people bbq ing playing cricket football. Absolute waste of a 500mile round trip NEVER AGAIN.
