Immortal Triathlons have enjoyed great success at Stourhead in recent years. We all know not everyone is up for a swim, and maybe cycling is not your thing. In 2018 the event sold out and over 220 Immortal athletes were unleashed on the Immortal 10k route with great results, and for 2019 we are hoping that you will be up for the challenge once more!
Enjoying the same fantastic finish line experience outside Stourhead House, the route will take in many of the stunning sights and views around Stourhead Estate and adjoining forestry. We cannot pretend this is an easy route, but to earn the right to become Immortal, it has to be tough.
Around 50% of the route is on really quiet closed country lanes, with the remainder on forest tracks and trails. With a total of 770ft/235m of climbing
The race will be a mass start, under the Stone Arch of the driveway to the house, at the 10am on Saturday 11th May 2019. Running through Stourton village, then past the Lakes before taking a right turn crossing a dam before starting the run for the trees. In early May the flora and fauna is guaranteed spectacular, and the sights and smells will distract you from the shift you are putting in!
The loop through the forest takes in some beautiful clearings and pasture before returning to the Dam which supports the lake, under the Stone Arch before returning through the village and onto the driveway to receive the respect and applause from the gathered spectators and families. A fantastic medal and a technical t-shirt will ensure the race stays long in the memory.
