Pitsford Standard Triathlon, Duathlon, Aquathlon routes



Swim: 1500M

The swim starts from the shore of the Northampton Sailing Club, before heading out to the Dam Wall and swimming parallel alongside it. The swim provides great viewing for spectators.

Bike: 40KM
The course begins with a quick climb followed by steep downhill into Pitsford village. After this, the route remains steadily undulating throughout while you cycle throughout the picturesque Northamptonshire countryside.

The last 5 Miles of the cycle provides a considerable test on a few up-hills, however it will be well worth it for the rapid downhill back into the country park.

Run: 10.2KM
The final stage of the triathlon will culminate in a 10KM around the reservoir's edge, through woodland and over tracks with stunning views over the lake throughout.

The Triathlon can be completed as part of a 3 person relay-team - each team member will complete one stage of the event.


The Duathlon will follow the same cycling and running routes as the triathlon above.


The Aquathlon swim will be the same as the Triathlon and the run following the same route as the above events.
