The swim is an open water (and freshwater) swim in the lake. The bike course consists of a gently rolling route circling the estate, while the run is a scenic offering around the Queen's Pool.
The Sprint Team Relay is a great introduction to triathlon. Teams of 3 will have one member complete each element of the event, eg one member swims, one bikes, and one runs. The 'baton' or timing chip is passed between teammates in transition, then all members of the team will meet and cross the finish line together.
Sprint: 750m Swim, 19.8km Bike, 5.4km Run

Do I need a wetsuit to compete in the Blenheim Palace Triathlon?
Wetsuits are compulsory for this triathlon for the safety of our participants. Your wetsuit will keep you warm and improve your swimming speed; a wetsuit provides you with extra buoyancy and the higher you are the faster you swim. Your wetsuit must be a neoprene and we recommend a full body wetsuit, it can be a ‘shorty’.

No, personal music devices are not allowed as you will not be able to hear marshals or others around you.

Water will be handed out on the run course and at the finish line. There will be no water stations on the bike course – it is your responsibility to ensure that you have enough fluid to keep yourself hydrated on the bike leg.
Does my bike helmet meet safety standards for the Blenheim Palace Triathlon?
Your helmet will pass the safety inspection as long as it has no cracks in it, has no damage to it and bears a CE & EU safety mark inside it. The strap must also be in good working order.
