Standard: 1.5k Swim, 40k Bike, 10.2k Run
Sprint: 750m Swim, 20.6k Bike, 5k Run
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.
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.
The final stage of the triathlon will culminate in a 10k 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.

Our roots are in off road sports. We offer a complete series of Ultra trail runs many of which have become "must do events" in the Ultra race calendar. Staying with the off road and trail theme we have a sprint style duathlon which once again is in a fantastic location with fabulous trails. But we like to provide something for everyone. We are also the organisers of the Northampton Half Marathon and The Pitsford Triathlons (Sprint and Standard), in fact we are a one stop shop for all the races you will ever need. Go Beyond was founded in 2008 and purchased in 2018 by Simon Hollis. We now work with over 30 charities helping them carry out fundraising through sport. So please, come and join us and take your fitness to a new level - and why not raise money for a good cause at the same time.
