The Deva Divas Triathlon is a short distance ladies only race. It's now a well-known, popular event which, in 2009 and 2016, won the coveted British Triathlon, "Event of the Year" award. The only race to have ever been accorded this accolade twice!
As always, the emphasis to ensure that the day is fun. Many people see triathlon as a sport for those who are super fit but at Chester Tri we are encouraging more and more ladies to start training and take part in achievable, short distance races. That said this race also welcomes more experienced Triathlete to come and compete in a friendly and supportive atmosphere!
A 750m open water swim in the River Dee – wetsuits are compulsory. 2019 will see three waves of Divas swimming downstream from the ferry pontoon (opposite Sandy Lane). Exit will be via the pontoon ramp – there will be marshals to assist Divas out of the river. Friends and family will be able to map competitors progress by walking alongside the river!
Once out of the River Dee, Divas will take their bikes from transition and make their way out onto Elizabeth Crescent. Once off Queens Park the 25K cycle route heads out to Eccleston, descending onto the old Wrexham Road and out to Rosset before turning at the Marford roundabout to return to the Chester Meadows. The course is generally flat with slight undulations at the beginning/end of the route!
All the junctions are signed and have a friendly marshal to tell you which way to go.
Off the bike and out of transition for the final discipline – a 5K flat off road run.
The run goes through the meadows to the turnaround point where you can pick up some water before heading back to the transition areas. Complete two laps before heading over the Finish line – with a big smile!!!
