    About the event
    From the organiser

    Since 1990 this event has been five times host to the National Sprint Championships, and with the perfect venue it is not difficult to see why.

    We bring you this novice, sprint, standard and middle distance event in the perfect triathlon venue. The swim takes place in the boating lake with beautiful views over the Leicestershire and Warwickshire countryside. The cycle is on a fast route with quiet and well maintained roads and the final run section circles the lake

    • Did the Middle in 2018

      I think the organisers should've said the swim MAY be non wetsuit. I brought mine with me just in case but lots didn't. There wasn't much support from Marshalls on the bike route, one on a tight corner sat in his car the whole time literally paying no attention to the race. Another I told a competitor needed assistance, the Marshall didn't seem to know what to do. To top it all off the run was over a mile short? Couldn't we have added an extra lap?
    • Did the Sprint in 2018

      Very late start meant family hanging around longer also messed with pre race nutrition. Transition not very organized with regards to bike racking. Very poor.
    • Did the Olympic in 2018

      The note about it being a non wet suit swim was confusing and if you had said it 'may' be a non wet suit swim then all those who didn't bring theirs may have done, I did have mine.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Avenger Weekender returns to the beautiful Ragley Hall, Warwickshire, comprising of a series of events set over a 2 day weekend in June.

    The start and finish for all three distances will be in the magnificent Ragley grounds, which also provide activities for all the family.The swim takes place in the boating lake and is based on a 650m lap. From the lake, it is a short, slightly uphill run to transition. The bike routes then take competitors along the drive and out into the beautiful, rolling Warwickshire and Worcestershire countryside, returning to Ragley Hall via the imposing main gates and up the sweeping drive past the Hall itself. The run course, used for the first time in 2016, is based on a 5km lap through woodland tracks, gardens, historic outbuildings and fields of the estate.

    This provides all the competitors with a chance to enjoy some of the spectacular scenery Ragley Hall has to offer. In 2017, competitors described the run course as tough but stunning, with great support all the way around.

    Southam Triathlon – Autumn

    59 Welsh Rd W, Southam CV47, UKView event
    About the event
    From the organiser

    Our triathlon is a sprint length event, starting at 8am for both the Spring & Autumn events with the swim at Southam Leisure Centre / Southam College there is plenty of parking in the staff car park but this will be shut off during the race. Another car park can be found to the right and rear of the college which would give you a quicker get-away. The event will be timed and tracked by Stuweb so expect to see your stats on the TV Screen after you have finished the event.

    We have introduced a biking element for the children giving rise to our Jnr Triathlon for them to take part in. We have also moved the event to the Sunday to take advantage of the timing equipment that will already be in use for the adults, so you will be getting full race splits for swim/bike/run and the transition times too.

    • Did the Sprint & Relay in 2018

      On the instructions it says cycle on the right, pass on the left. This was changed in the brief to ride on the left, pass on the right.needs clarification.
    • Did the event in 2017

      The race organisation was excellent and the location was great for my first Olympic distance event. I would have rated the course higher. We warned about the pot holes but was shocked at the number of people who came off their bike. I took care through the chicance as per marshall's advice.I was thrilled with my sub 3 hour time, I didn't mind the laps as it was great for spectators (didn't approve of people walking their dog down the middle of the course!) and scenary was nice. However as this was my 1st event of this distance you can imagine my disappointment to discover that the Bike course and Run course came up short. I feel slighly cheated that to be advertised as an Olympic distance it was actually sub 40km and 10km respectively. I would have preferred for the course to be longer (additional lap) if that ensured the full distance. Otherwise I would participate again :)

      Hi Daniel Thank you for taking the time out to review The Birmingham Triathlon and thank you for your comments. The bike course: I hope you heard in the race brief, we are trying desperately hard to get it resurfaced with Birmingham City Council, I have had countless meetings and email conversations with them but to date they are saying they do not have the funds. Its very hard for us to take sometimes because we know it is such a great race. Spectators, well they can be a pain where ever you go, I know when I take part in events. The bike course is slightly shorter than 40k for the reason and recommendations from BT, the turn by the Jamboree Stone was made shorter on safety grounds, I will address this for next year. As for the run course, well that should have been spot on, I measured it with our GPS and measuring wheel. Also here is a link to the website we use for measuring courses: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/23534605 Thank you Daniel and we hope to see you at our events in 2018 :)

      Superbly organised event from booking from online booking(very late decision from me)to the finish.Pre race information is very thorough and points you in the direction of where to park and then an easy walk to the registration tent(registration was painless).Swim in the leisure centre pool again directions from the organisers are excellent and then a run to transition.Bike course is easy to navigate with left turns or roundabouts and well marked and marshalled(all very encouraging)Run is an out and back with a small rise to test the legs as you come out of transition, again well signed,marshalled(Derby tri club)and supported,with a small downhill to finish.both years there have been a wide variety of competitors and I'd recommend for anyone looking to complete a first triathlon.
