Sundowner Triathlon routes
Half Distance Triathlon:
A leisurely midday start sees the first competitors setting off on their epic journey. The 1900 metre swim takes place in the safe, calm waters of Allerthorpe Lakeland Park. Experience the freedom and enjoyment of open water swimming with the full support of a very experienced water safety crew.
With great visibility throughout the swim and an easy to navigate swim course, you can focus your attention on achieving your best effort for the swim, whilst your supporters will be able to enjoy a view of the entire swim course as you tackle the first discipline of the Sundowner Tri.
Having completed the swim you’ll soon experience the flat, fast quiet country roads around Allerthorpe (just 10 miles from York).
Feed stations are available on route for you to re-fuel as you tackle the beautiful, scenic 90 kilometre bike route.
The 2 lap circuit is fully signed and our Freebird marshals will encourage and direct you all the way, making the course very easy to navigate.
Completing the first lap, enjoy the fantastic support from the crowd as you take on fuel and settle down into lap two.
Swim and bike complete, you’ve just got the final part of your triathlon to go. The 21km run is made up of 3 laps, beginning with a short loop around the lakes before heading out of the park on a buzzing out and back circuit. The atmosphere on the run is amazing as runners fill the roads. With 5 feed stations on each lap, we’ll keep you fuelled as you pound out the kilometres.
Returning back to Allerthorpe Lakeland Park, enjoy those final moments and experience the crowd of supporters welcoming you back to cross the finish line having completed the Sundowner Triathlon.
Starting with a 750 metre swim, in the calm waters, the Sundowner Sprint Tri kicks off this great weekend of triathlon.
Great visibility and a very easy to navigate swim course means you can focus your attention on achieving your best swim effort while we look after the smooth running of the event.
Your supporters are able to enjoy a view of the entire swim course as you experience the freedom and enjoyment of open water swimming with the full support of our very experienced water safety crew.

You can be assured that the bike course is very easy to navigate with signs located at every road junction along with highly experienced marshals to direct you.
The Yorkshire roads are particularly flat and set in beautiful countryside. The quiet and very good surfaced roads makes the bike circuit a pleasure to ride.
