Nottingham Sprint TriathlonBlotts Country Club and Holme PI, Adbolton Ln, Nottingham NG12 2LU, UK

The National Water Sports Centre is the perfect venue for testing yourself on a perfectly flat course where the tempo is high and the competition is fierce (and friendly!)

Whether youre an experienced athlete looking for a fast time over the sprint distance, or youre a novice competitor looking for a safe and friendly venue for your first open water triathlon, then the Nottingham Triathlon is the perfect event.

The arena type venue with an overlooking grandstand, blaring PA, electric atmosphere and big crowds will push you beyond what you think you're capable of. Whether it is your first triathlon or you are trying to qualify for the national Age-Group squad, we guarantee you will enjoy the fully closed road-circuit style race and the extra support that brings with it.

The swim takes place in the regatta lake, with a simple out and back course, followed by four laps of the perimeter lake on the bike. Dont forget the wind, which can push you back one way, but also propel you at high speeds in the opposite direction. The run covers on and off road sections before taking you past the cheering grandstand to the finishing line.

This fantastic venue offers camping and ample car-parking, making it the perfect event to bring the family to, as they'll get to see you swim, bike and run as well as have the opportunity to enjoy the park environment and various activities on site. There are two main cafes on site, changing and shower facilities and very easy access to Nottingham city centre just two miles down the road.

Accenture World Triathlon NottinghamVictoria Embankment, Nottingham, UK

In 2018, a packed crowd witnessed Team USA take the gold ahead of Great Britain at the inaugural Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham. 19 international quartets had decended on the city, all racing in search of Olympic qualification points as part of the World Triathlon Mixed Relay series, just two days before they headed north to take on the British leg of the ITU World Triathlon Series in Leeds.

International quartets will once again return to the banks of the River Trent on Saturday 15 June 2019, as the battle continues for qualification points to secure a place on the start line as Triathlon Mixed Relay makes its Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games. But the event is not all about the elite action with over 200 Age-Group and GO TRI first time triathletes having celebrated their blue carpet moment last year, the 2019 event welcomes the British Age-Group Sprint Distance Championships to the schedule creating opportunities at all levels of the sport to take part in the action across a range of event distances.

  • 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.
