    Hi - as a relative newbie to triathlon - can you tell me if the Sprint races imply that you have to be fast?! Because - I feel I could do the Sprint distances but I am really, really slow! Also - I am guessing you don't need a wet suit for the pool as it is heated? Look forward to hearing from you!

    S

    Steph E
    Hi there. Do not fear - 'sprint' just refers to the distance of the event, not the speed. Sprint distance triathlons are perfect for those wanting to try their first triathlon and rest assured, it doesn't mean you have to do it super fast! You are right re the wetsuit, you wont need one for any pool-base triathlon. Best of luck!

4.5 out of 5 stars

  • Did the Sprint in 2019

    This was the second tri I’ve done, on the same course. The pool was well heated which really helps! The bike course is overall pretty good. Fast and flat, with some rough surfaces but these are easily navigated. Run-wise, I personally find the two hairpins and undulating grass course quite challenging, and not a course for a run PB. That said, it’s the same for everyone, so not big problem.

    The atmosphere was a bit flat at times and I found myself being the only person clapping for some competitors as they crossed the line. Again, not something major, but could be better.

    The main gripe is with the timing. An overall time was provided at the finish line as a print out but splits were not included. The provisional results online were hugely inaccurate and most I’d looked at must have been uploaded inaccurately. So basically, if I hadn’t timed it myself, I still wouldn’t have any idea of what my splits were, even two days later. I think this is a fundamental part of what I paid for, so could only give 4/5 for organisation.

    Overall though, this still represents a very good choice for a first tri.

  • Did the Sprint in 2019

    Quite a different set up but fun. Road surface not great but well marked. Different type of swim in brine pool.
  • Did the Cheshire Fun in 2019

    Brilliantly organised everyone was so informative straightforward and had a lovely way of putting you at ease.
  • Did the Super Sprint in 2019

    This was my very first triathlon! The course was well suited for beginners. The two transition areas were a little confusing for a first timer so make sure youre prepared beforehand!
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    This is a great sprint tri for beginners because the bike course is probably the flattest course that you'l be able to find in the north west - I saw one lady cycling a fold up bike! And the run is a 4 lap course so there is plenty of opportunity for your supporters to see you and take pictures or shout encouragement. The only downside to this tri for me personally is the salt water pool, but that is probably only a problem if you swallow too much water along the way (I wouldn't recommend it!). The organisers and marshals are very friendly and helpful. I stupidly stuck the leg race number stickers on upside down but the lovely lady in the registration tent was on hand to help remove them and write the numbers on correctly! The supporters are very friendly too, I saw a few people helping other competitors to pump up tyres and fix chains before the race. There is a great atmosphere at this event, definitely one to do if you are thinking about doing your first triathlon.
