Washington Sprint & Novice Triathlon routes

Transition Area

The transition area is located to the left handside of the swimming pool in the car park (this will be closed for oncoming cars).

The swim is in a pool

The bike section follows a circular multiple looped course around the close locality of Washington and the Galleria’s ensuring that spectators can see the competitors and at some clear advantage points as they complete their laps.

On coming out of transition runners must head around the sports centre around following the tree line on the right. As runners pass the leisure centre you will turn right towards Princes Anne Park and there will be clear signage providing direction.

    Did the Sprint Triathlon in 2019

    No numbers on bike racks which resulted in bikes just being left everywhere in transition.
    Stupidly over competitive cyclists on the route, on the opposite side of the road, overtaking you as a vehicle was overtaking you, almost knocking you off.
    Cutting back in too quickly nearly hitting my front wheel.
    Leisure centre not closed to cars so they’re turning in as you’re going by.
    Never again.
