Route information
The swim portion of the event will be laps in the pool, ensuring a straightforward start to the event.
  • Super Sprint & Fun entrants will swim 8 lengths
  • Sprint & Relay entrants will swim 16 lengths
A mainly flat and quite a technical course, the bike ride is an 18k loop around the countryside. With fully closed-roads and a flat ride, entrants can focus on cruising the roads.
It is compulsory to wear a cycle helmet on the cycle section of the event.

In similar fashion, the run route follows closed, flat roads, ensuring runners can enjoy the scenery instead of a challenging route. The course will be looped, with runners completing laps to run their chosen distance.
  • Super Sprint & Fun - 4 laps (5k)
  • Sprint & Relay - 2 laps (2.5k)
See hereExternalLink for an interactive route map.
All competitors must count their own swim lengths in the pool, their own laps on the bike and run.

Did the Sprint in 2019
My first Triathlon. I've completed many cycle events and this event was very well organised and a great intro in to Triathlon. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the encouragement from the crowd. Great day.
