Route description
Route description


A fantastic course that has something in it for everyone. There are challenging moment's but nothing a first time triathlete won't be able to handle. This is a mass start event and non-draft legal race.

Swim - Open water, Bike - Road, Run - Off-road

**The Swim Course
**The swim route follows a clockwise 750m loop around the wakeboarding lake. There are two buoys you must swim around at either end of the lake. There will be no wakeboarding happening during this triathlon.

Sprint distance athletes complete 1 lap.

Standard distance athletes complete 2 laps.

The Bike Course
The route is an 18.7km loop around the flat and fast roads of Kempston. All participants must adhere to the highway code, since the race is not held on closed roads. The race is started early in the morning to avoid traffic.

Sprint distance athletes complete 1 lap.

Standard distance athletes complete 2 laps.

The Run Course
The run course is one 5.3km loop on mildly undulating terrain, which you join approximately 100m from transition.

Taking the run to and from transition into account, the total distances are 5.3km for the sprint and 10.4km for the standard distance.

Sprint distance athletes will complete 1 lap.

Standard distance athletes will complete 2 laps. (You do not need to come back to transition before your second lap.)

Logistics and schedule

The triathlon will begin at 07:00am. This will be either a mass start or a time trial format start, depending on covid restrictions. Swimmers will start 1 by 1, in 20 second intervals, with the fastest predicted swim times being set off first.


This is a great spectator event and the atmosphere is also fantastic.
