Willen Lake is hosting its first triathlon since the European Championships in 1984, and provides a stunning location for triathletes of all abilities to get their feet wet in support of the UK Emergency Services.
The race will begin at 7am by the jetty near the Lakeside Pub with a looped swim around the lake. Once out of the lake, participants will hop on their bikes and exit the city on a partially closed course.
