Designed to appeal to both the experienced or novice endurance athlete the race is based in Keswick, with a superb transition area at The Theatre by the Lake. The swim takes place in the crystal clear waters of Derwentwater, generally regarded on the Lake Districts most scenic lakes. Both bike route make their way to the west coast of Cumbria where competitors get to experience a side of the lakes often unvisited by tourists, with mountains on one side and the sea on the other. During the run stage athletes will have the opportunity running through superb countryside with views to the likes of Skiddaw as well as a spectator friendly section through Keswick town centre.

Route information
Derwentwater is generally regarded as the area’s most scenic lake and swimming in its crystal clear water is something all triathletes should get the chance to experience. A single lap swim is envisaged along with a mass start from the shallow water by the boat launch.
You probably won’t have the time but the views from the water are simply unbeatable! After the swim there is a short carpeted spectator lined run to transition which is adjacent to Theatre by the Lake.
This is a simply superb route for a triathlon bike course. Athletes will take in several miles of well-known local time trial routes as well as more undulating sections, all on generally excellent road surfaces. Whilst not flat, we have minimised the elevation and it currently comes in at less than most of the other UK based races of this distance.
Leaving transition the route takes in some little known hidden areas of the town before heading North on the Cumbrian Way.On the approach to Portinscale the mighty Skiddaw comes into view in all its 3,053ft of glory – overlooking and protecting Keswick in equal measure. The route then utilises the A5721 for an out and back section, which is closed to traffic allowing athletes the chance to keep tabs on their competitors and also enjoy support from friends and family without worrying about cars.
The route then heads back towards Keswick town centre, once again passing through Elliot Park before crossing The Heads where the breathtaking lakes view reappears.
Dropping down towards Hope Park athletes must complete five loops before entering the magical red carpet finish chute where you will all hear words that make it all worthwhile: “You Are a Lakesman”.
