Only the most hardened athletes will endeavour to complete all 3 elements over the weekend 10K, Mega Sprint and Middle Distance to secure a place in the Triple Crown Hall of Fame.
On completion of all three events, you’ll be inducted into the Triple Crown Hall of Fame and will receive a very special finisher’s memento.
This tough and challenging race will start off with a 1900m, two laps swim in the beautiful and scenic lake, followed by a 56-mile ride, which is stunning, yet fast and tough in equal measures. The route unusually visits the three counties of Wiltshire, Somerset and Dorset. The run route then follows a footpath through a meadow, before a section of tarmac to the far west end of the lap. From here the route passes through the woods to the west of Stourhead, on a lively descent. You will be again wowed by the views. Three laps take you past the stunning Estate House, where you are sure to be cheered on by friends and family. The finish line at the House at the end of lap three will bring with it, the accolade of becoming an Immortal Triathlete.
Around 50% of the route is on really quiet closed country lanes, with the remainder on forest tracks and trails. With a total of 770ft/235m of climbing
Running through Stourton village, then past the Lakes before taking a right turn crossing a dam before starting the run for the trees. In early May the flora and fauna is guaranteed spectacular, and the sights and smells will distract you from the shift you are putting in!
The loop through the forest takes in some beautiful clearings and pasture before returning to the Dam which supports the lake, under the Stone Arch before returning through the village and onto the driveway to receive the respect and applause from the gathered spectators and families.
Mega Sprint -
This tough and challenging race will start off with a 900m swim in the large lake, followed a by a beautiful and fast 18-mile ride through the Wiltshire, Somerset and Dorset counties, before finishing in a 4.5-mile run!
