What you need to know

Spanning 7 days the Monster Triathlon is the UKs ultimate multi-sport challenge.

The event established itself as one of the toughest endurance challenges in the UK, covering 1,000km between Loch Ness and London across 3 disciplines.

It starts with a 5km swim in Loch Ness, before 5 stunning days on the bike and finishes with an ultra-marathon along the Thames. For those unable to tackle the beast in one go we are offering Swim, Cycle and Run only packages this year. Youll pass lakes, climb mountains, ride past fields, fly through villages, cross rivers and conquer hills. As well as being an epic challenge The Monster Triathlon also highlights the beauty and diversity of the UK. There are 7 days of meticulously planned routes, with full support teams in attendance at every start, finish, on the route and at hotels.

If youre not ready to attempt the whole Monster Triathlon this year then why not take on one of our discipline-specific challenges?

DAY 3: TUES 25 JUNECycle from Glasgow to Carlisle

190km and 1626m
The ride follows a direct route through the Scottish Borders as it cuts through the rugged landscape. It’s an easier day than the first but still lumpy enough to provide a stern challenge.

DAY 4: WED 26 JUNECycle from Carlisle to Haydock

200km 1749m
The longest day of the event and a tough day in the saddle. The route takes riders over the famous Shap pass and through the undulating countryside of Lancashire.

DAY 5: THURS 27 JUNECycle from Haydock to Kidderminster

195km 1376m
Another long day of riding sees riders enjoy a relatively flat first 80 miles before a hilly section through the Shropshire hills and on to Kidderminster

DAY 6: FRI 28 JUNECycle from Kidderminster to Windsor

198km 1595m
The final days riding is another long day with riders passing through Shakespeare country and the lovely Warwickshire countryside. The final few hills of the trip are found as the route crosses the Chilterns before the descent down to Windsor.

DAY 7: SAT 29 JUNERun from Windsor to Richmond
