Arundel Lido Tri will be the 12th year in 2017 and will no doubt sell out as it has done each year. Arundel is steeped in history with its Castle and the River Arun running through the town. Located between Chichester and Worthing in West Sussex, Arundel is popular with tourists. Race HQ is the unique Arundel Outdoor Lido right on the banks of the River Arun and under the shadow of the castle.
There are three events to choose from, the Long Triathlon (800m swim, 40km bike, 10km run), the Sprint Triathlon (400m swim, 20km bike, 5km run) and Relay Triathlon run over the long distance course (1 swimmer, 1 cyclist & 1 runner).
The Long Triathlon starts at 6:00am followed by the Sprint Triathlon at 7:40am. The swim is in the heated outdoor 25m pool; the bike uses mainly A Class roads and has a long gradual climb shortly after the start. The run takes athletes along the tree lined avenue by the castle and River Arun before heading towards the Arundel Estate. The Long Triathlon then climbs to the trig point on the estate affording spectacular views at the top, before a rolling section into the village of South Stoke. A catering marquee and Trade Stand will be sited within the grounds of the Lido. Arundels shops, cafes, pubs, museums and castle will also be open to the public.
