    Gosfield Lake Triathlon

    About the event
    From the organiser

    Gosfield Lake Sprint and Standard Triathlons: these are our flagship events at the stunning Gosfield Lake resort and we run two distances to cater for all abilities. The sprint event is a 750M swim, 20Km bike ride of one lap around the lanes followed by an off road (but not cross country) run. The standard distance follows the same route but is 1500M swim, 40Km bike and a 10K run. This race is popular every year and sells out well in advance of its usual closing date.

    • Did the Sprint Distance in 2018

      Good event and nice venue but the run course was no where near as long as it was supposed to be and directions weren't entirely clear which caused a bit of confusion. Overall a great day though!
    • Did the event in 2018

      Lovely lake and setting. Good, fast cycle route but the run was short of the 10k possibily due to a confusion near the circuit end. The run route also had a tricky path that challenged manners of oncoming runners. Also, I'm not on facebook so didn't see the pdf or get a race brief before hand. Maybe admin might email out for next year? I'll definitely do it again though.

      gosfield lake triathlon is run by the born2tri team. They have run this event for a few years and have it organised very well. Parking is not on site, it is in the local playing field well signposted, marshalled and a short 300 ish m walk to the lake. Registration is slick and well organised transition is wel marshalled and easy to navigate. They have a bag drop tent which helps when your a lone competitor so you have access to your belongings before the race finishes and transition opens for bike removal.  Race start this year was via a beach start style lining in up in corresponding time zones based upon your 100m time. Previously it had been a start in the water. This was the only issue for me as the actual start area was very narrow and once over the timing mat you were held up slightly. Over than that the swim is good and easy to navigate as 2 laps for the Olympic distance one for the sprint. The bike is two laps of the surrounding countryside on quite roads so not much traffic. The course is two laps for Olympic one for sprint it is quick however there is one hill per lap that gets you!  The run is out into countryside passed the golf club, part trails part farmers track and again two laps for Olympic and one for sprint. This is mostly a traffic free run. There are 2 water stations that are well marshalled. Could do with gells at one of them probably a luxury request rather than anything else! Into the finish line and done great setting, organisation, well signposted and marshalled. This race is on my calendar every year

    Stradbroke Triathlon

    7 Bishops Way, Stradbroke, Eye IP21 5JR, UKView event

    About the event
    From the organiser

    Taking place at The Stradbroke Swim and Fitness Centre, its an ideal early season triathlon for anyone who is new to the triathlon world. The swim is short and simple, a 160m pool swim whereby triathletes swim two lengths of each lane in the pool before exiting the water. The cycle route is amazing! A single 17km loop taking in some breathtaking (literally) views along country roads. Sweet and simple the run is two laps of a 1.5km route around playing fields next to the leisure centre and on the headland of adjoining arable fields.

    This race is suitable for youths and adults aged 15+ and is an ideal introduction to triathlon competition as well as a great warm up to the season for more experienced competitors.

      This was my first triathlon and doing it at stradbroke was an enjoyable experience. The atmosphere is so relaxed and everyone there was happy to help and get involved. I would thoroughly recommend this event for those wanting to do a triathlon because it is just great! At no point did I feel under any pressure or worry and I think thats how everyone should feel before a race. Thank you for a great weekend and I hope to see you next year!

      A few months ago I participated, for the second year in a row, in the Big East Triathlon in Essex. This event is fantastically organised and all the organisers/volunteers are so helpful and friendly. The course for the run is particularly beautiful along the sea front (if a little windy at times!) Overall, it is a brilliant event for both beginners and more experienced triathletes. I participated in this event in 2016 as my first ever triathlon and a year later I was placed 3rd in my category. Unfortunately I was short on time and so couldn’t wait for the prize giving but they still went out of their way to both congratulate me and made the effort to post my trophy to me. Thank you to everyone involved in the organisation of this event.

      First half distance completed in 2017 and would do the event again in the future.  Good value for money and nice flat course.  Only downside was the lack of entries, but hopefully the event will grow in the future.
    • Did the event in 2017

      Easy to find, register and set up, plenty of toilets and bar/cafe nearby.Really enjoyed this triathlon, my first ever open water swim and I felt very safe and had a great swim.Cycle took you through the dengie, very scenic and flat course.Run was mostly off road, I have problems with my ankle, and the surface made it difficult for me to push on the run as I didnt want to risk twisting my ankle. Though very scenic runWould definetly do this event again, though more information about the run would be good, also for someone who had only done one triathlon before, the rules werent fully explained, resulting in a helmet violation for myself, which was a rule I knew nothing about.
