Erewash Triathlon route

The Swim

  • You will be allocated a swim start based on our estimated swim time for 16 lengths (400m).
  • Athletes will be started at intervals to avoid overcrowding.
  • Your lengths will be counted for you.
  • After completing the full distance exit the pool safely and make your way to transition.

The Cycle
It is participants responsibility to be safe and follow the Highway Code, instructions of the race marshals and be aware of any pedestrians, traffic or crossings that you come across whilst on the route. Failure to do so could result in disqualification from the race. It is compulsory that all participants wear an approved cycle helmet during this discipline. (For those new to triathlon this means fastening your helmet securely on your head before removing your bike from the bike racking and not undoing the helmet until after you have returned your bike to the racking after the cycle leg is completed).

The cycle course is approximately 16 km and reasonably flat. The course is as follows:-

The Run

  • The Run Route covers the pathways of West Park over 1 large lap and one slightly shorter lap.
  • After leaving the grassed area adjacent to transition the surface is solid and flat throughout making for a fast final leg.
  • A Drink station will be located around 500m into the run which will also be passed at around 2.75km. Please dispose of any litter responsibly using the allocated bins.
  • The finish line is adjacent to transition so, once you are finished, please do respect those who are still racing and keep clear of the transition exits/entrances.
  • Once transition re-opens for the collection of bikes and kit please do be aware of others who may still be racing.
