From the organiser

Welcome to the Centurion Triathlon the Vesuvius of multi-sport racing in south-east England. You have two races from which to choose: the 100-mile Imperial or the 100-km Metric.

Youll need all your armour for the swim, which is two laps of the Stanborough Park amphitheatre for both events. Helmets in place, Imperial and Metric combatants will follow the same bike course but those tackling the longer distance will complete four rather than two laps. Trail footpaths and long, straight footpaths will feature on the run, which is either 2 laps for Metric combatants and 3 laps for Imperials.

The innovative Centurion Triathlon will help you make the leap from standard to middle distance or middle to long distance triathlon. It will be one of the best race-preparation opportunities for longer distance events later in the season.

Course Details

The race starts and finishes in the same location at Stanborough Lakes in Welwyn Garden City. The swim is in Stanborough’s southern lake, the bike course is undulating and the run features mixed terrain.

You will complete a partial lap of Stanborough lakes park and out into the eastern boundaries of your empire. You will receive all the encouragement you need from the citizens of Welwyn before returning home. However the relief is short lived, as your fate will be sealed with one or more repetitions before you can be named a Centurion.

Cutoff times for the course are as follows:

    Swim: 1 hour 30 mins
    Bike: 7 hours (cumulative)
    Finish: 10 hours 30 mins (cumulative)

Food and water will be provided at feed stations on the bike and run course and at the finish.

Raceday Logistics

Race numbers and timing chips will be collected at Stanborough Lake. Details about registration will be available closer to the event date.

Detailed race notes will be sent out two weeks before the race.

  • Did the Metric Triathlon in 2018

    Firstly thanks for a brilliant event. There was quite a bit of grumbling about signage. I think this affected the run more than anything else but personally I was struggling to know what to do at the end of lap two of the metric cycle. I had to ask and so did my daughter. Once I knew I was heading up the hill I was in the wrong gear and the upshot was chain off. The girl Marshall immediately put her hand on the derailleur to allow me position the chain, she knows her stuff. Give her my thanks if you can. For next year please number the bag slots. I made a fool of myself searching but others had an issue too. Please ensure we have similar weather at future events, it was perfect.
