Established in 2003, the Vitruvian started from humble beginnings and less than 250 starters in its first year. Since then the Vitruvian has grown into one of the most respected and iconic races on the UK calendar. Voted the UK's event of the year in 2007, 2008 and 2009 by the 220 Triathlon magazine awards, the Vitruvian sees 1000+ competitors race annually and is significantly oversubscribed year on year so you need to get in early if you want a slot.

Vitruvian Triathlon route

With a two lap 1900m swim in front of highly enthusiastic crowds the race starts as it means to go on and the double lap bike course covering 85km in total is not for the fain hearted. With the 21km run to finish it off the Vitruvian is a true test of endurance.

    This a lovely low key alternative to a big Ironman 70.3 event. Rutland water is a great place to swim and with the sun rising as the first swim wave went out totally epic. Bike course is on open roads and a touch hilly which makes for a slow bike but the run is pretty much flat along the lake edge. Great organisation and easy going atmosphere.
