The Ilkley Triathlon is a club run sprint distance event held every year since 1992 making it one of the longest running triathlon events held in the UK. It has a reputation for being a friendly, race, ideal for novices and first-timers with great support all the way around the course. However the course is still a challenge for more experienced athletes, indeed both Brownlees have taken part in the past. The testament to its popularity is that it has won the UK "Race of the Year" on multiple occasions including 2015 and was nominated in the top three in 2016 & is shortlisted again in 2017. Ilkley Triathlon remains one of the best value for money events in the racing calendar and combined with it being set in a stunning Yorkshire countryside location it is a simply must do the event.

What’s Included

The Ilkley Triathlon is a sprint-distance event with a 500m indoor swim, followed by a 14.5km bike (3x laps of a 4.8km circuit) and a 4.8km run (1x lap of the same circuit). Whilst the event is taking place at the Ilkley Pool & Lido, the swim takes place in the indoor pool with extra-wide lanes, and not in the outdoor lido.

Swim 500m indoor
Bike 14.5km (3x laps)
Run 4.8km (1x lap)

The bike and run follow the same course – a 4.8 km circuit along Denton Road, Carter Lane, Curly Hill and Middleton Road. The first mile is flat, the second uphill, and the third mile downhill. The course is suitable for all abilities, but can be challenging if you want to make it so.
