Route information
This triathlon is based in the historic market town of Ringwood in southwest Hampshire and features a pool-based swim, a bike leg through the stunning New Forest and a run route taking you through the town and into the surrounding countryside. You can also opt to complete an aquabike or aquathlon, which follow the same routes.
You'll start with a 600m swim in the Ringwood Health and Leisure Centre's 25m heated swimming pool.
The 28-mile bike leg is the longest, with a well-marshalled and fully signed bike route along New Forest roads, passing free-roaming horses, cows and donkeys. It is strongly recommended that you familiarise yourself with the route before racing.
The run route is a 5.5-mile looped course beginning at the Leisure Centre and heading out towards Hightown and then down to North Kingston, before returning back up through Upper Kingston and back into Ringwood.

Cycling Rules
  • No Drafting – a 7 metre gap must be kept from the cyclists around you. If overtaking a slower cyclist you have 30 seconds in which to complete the manoeuvre.
  • It is the responsibility of the overtaken cyclist to drop back and maintain the 7m gap once the faster cyclist has his or her wheel in front. If you are, in the opinion of the draftbusters, deliberately drafting and seeking to gain an advantage you will be issued with a 10-minute time penalty. Drafting is a“judgement” call – the draftbuster does not have to notify you at the time of your penalty as this could compromise road safety. If you are reported twice you will be DISQUALIFIED.
  • Cycling next to another cyclist is forbidden (see above).
  • If you are not overtaking, keep to the left-hand side of the road, allowing faster cyclists and traffic to overtake you.
  • On A-roads do not cross the centre white line. (DQ)
Aid Stations
There will NO aid/fuel station on the bike route. Competitors are therefore advised to carry their own drink bottles/gels etc.
