Route information
The award winning and SELL OUT East Leake Triathlon is one of the most established events of the late season. Celebrating its 21st year, The East Leake Triathlon is a great fast, flat course, providing the perfect finale to the 2024 season or a first event for the all those wanting to give triathlon a go. Same course as the March event providing an opportunity to stay motivated to train all year to beat your PB!
This is capped at 400 entrants only due to parking and consideration for local residents. This early season March triathlon sold out in 2023 with 8 weeks to go so please book early to avoid disappointment.
The 400m Pool Based Swim:
↠ Start times are based on your estimated 400m swim time with the slowest swimmers start first from 8:00am.
↠ The swim will be in a 4 lane, 25m pool. Competitors need to be in the swim holding area 15 mins before your start time changed & ready to collect your timing chip. The swim marshal will group the swimmers into waves, with 4 swimmers to a wave and each wave starting every 2-3mins.
Please note: It is the swimmer’s responsibility to count their lengths. We will have a marshal randomly checking and counting lengths.
↠ The swimmers around you will be of a similar standard, but if you need to overtake then please check the opposite direction as there may be up to 4-5 swimmers per lane and we don’t want any collisions!
↠ You will be told which direction to swim in, on entering the lane. On completion of your 16 lengths, exit through the marked fire exit There will be no changing facilities. Follow the signs for the transition area (this is a 150m run on paths & grass, please be careful) and find you bike.
↠ The surface is tarmac & grass & will be swept clean, but if you want to wear shoes for this section then place your shoes outside the fire exit on exiting the pool. Swim hats are not supplied and are optional.
↠ The weather could be very cold for all competitors on race day whatever time you are starting. Competitors will be allowed to leave a cycling jacket/gilet and gloves outside the fire exit if they wish but please be mindful of your start time, so we don’t have 300+ items of clothing on the pool exit.
22km On Road Bike Course:
↠ 22km out and back undulating route (no hills).
↠ 1 x right hand turn after the bridge at Kingston on Soar, all the way around the roundabout (marshalled) and return back the same way to the leisure centre.
↠ Circuit is not on closed roads.
5km Mixed Surfaces:
↠ 3 x 1 mile laps
