What you need to know

Returning to probably the fastest middle distance triathlon in the South East in 2019. New parking area for competitors and spectators plus a new run route.

Owler Tris offer middle distance plus standard triathlons, aquabikes and OWS.

The triathlons will start in Lydd Lake with a two lapped swim, before competitors ride a flat lapped bike route on scenic country roads through Lydd, Brooklands and Camber, before returning to transition at Lydd lake.

The 21K run section is flat four laps out and back route along paths around lake and surrounding paths. The standard run also follows the same route. You then head to cross the finish line in style.

Also on offer the Owler Aquabike both at half, standard and sprint distance.
