Route information
Novice Triathlon 200m Swim, 11k Bike, 2.5k Run
The Novice Triathlon is for anyone new to the sport and looking for a first race to take on. The race will be short and speedy, and a wonderful opportunity for a stress-free way to get into triathlon.
Sprint Triathlon
400m Swim, 22k Bike, 5k Run
This Sprint Triathlon is perfect if you're looking for a slightly tougher challenge, and still a great race for anyone new to the sport, but also slightly more experienced triathletes as well. Participants will take on two laps of the hilly course around Winchester.
Children’s Triathlon
100m Swim, 2k Bike, 1k Run
This race is suitable for children between the ages of 8 and 15, and takes place entirely within the school grounds. The swim will take place in a shallow pool before the bike and run sections see the children racing around the grass fields outside.
This brilliant event will have a wonderful atmosphere and will be a day out to remember for the whole family.
