Did the Sprint Plus - The Marquess in 2019
I never heard so much bad language and aggressive abuse. If I had a penny for every F and C word coming from cyclists to pedestrians and drivers passing my home on Sunday whilst they were competing in the triathlon then I would have earned a fortune. Absolutely disgusting behaviour and an insult to the sport and the charity they are trying to support. … read more

Route description
Route description

Every race at the 200-year-old Cholmondeley Castle start by launching into an open-water swim in Deer Park Mere Lake.

The bike route takes athletes around Bickerton Hill, the southern most tip of the Peckforton Hills. The stunning run courses passes through the estate grounds, which date back to the 12th Century.

Athletes will finish their Cholmondeley race experience by sprinting down the main lawn to the finish line with Cholmondeley Castle as a fitting backdrop.
