Bike - 180k
A course with something for everyone. Flat sections for the time triallers and some cheeky climbs for the mountain goats! The ride will take you through the picturesque Warwickshire countryside and include some climbs and descents on the Edge Hill escarpment, including infamous Edge Hill itself before returning to Park Farm. And you get to race it twice!
Total elevation -1778m
Suitable for TT and road bikes
Run - 42.2k
The race will finish with a four lap run on tracks and trails in and around the Compton Verney hamlet. This multi-terrain course has it all. Just the right amount of flats and hills to challenge you but also to make the most of the beautiful local scenery. The undulating course through meadows and woodlands will eventually bring you to the finish line in front of the beautiful tree-lined lake.
Total elevation - 477m
The run is mostly off road on grass and tracks. The paths are firm underfoot, so trail shoes or road shoes should be fine.
- DO3 Black Shirt for those who finish the full long distance triathlon
- Medals for all finishers
- Marked and marshalled route
- Aid stations
