Route information
Start with a 1900m swim in the beautiful Capability Brown designed lake. With a trickle start, competitors will enter the water in pairs and complete two laps of the course.
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 the infamous Edge Hill itself before returning to Park Farm.
Total Elevation: 888m Road type - mostly minor roads, good road surfaces
The race will finish with a 21.1 kilometre run on tracks and trails in and around Park Farm and 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: 238m Terrain: mostly off road on grass and tracks

Cut-Off Times
The following cut off times will be observed:
  • Swim: 1 hours 10 minutes, with 10 minutes to get out of transition on to your bike
  • Bike: 5 hours 20 minutes after your wave start
  • Run: 9 hours 00 minutes after your wave start
If the organiser feels during the run that you are not going to finish in time then you may be asked to stop. Try to ensure you are ahead of the cut off times as you can’t rely on catching up later in the race. If you are behind you may be asked to return to the venue.
