Route information
This middle-distance triathlon is set in the scenic grounds of Park Farm, nestled in the Compton Verney hamlet. Plunge into the waters of the Farm's beautiful lake, bike around the Warwickshire countryside and run through parkland.
Distance: 1,900m
The race begins with a 1,900m swim in the lake, designed by renowned landscaper and gardener Capability Brown. Competitors will enter the water in pairs in a trickle start, and complete two laps of the course.
Distance: 90k
Total Elevation: 888m Terrain: Minor roads
The bike leg of the race has something to ensure cyclists of all levels will enjoy it, with flat sections for time triallers and some more technical climbs. 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.
Distance: 21.1k
Total Elevation: 238m Terrain: Mostly off-road on grass and tracks
The race will finish with a 21.1k run along tracks and trails in and around Park Farm and the Compton Verney hamlet. This multi-terrain course has it all, offering 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.

  • Swim: 1 hour 10 minutes, with 10 minutes to get out of transition on to your bike

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.
