  • 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.

  • Did the event in 2018

    I had done the spring Cheshire Triathlon in May, and the course for this event was the same. I really enjoyed it again, not least for the location, and the facilities.
    The organisation was really good, and the Nantwich brine pool is fantastic. I knew I would find the water quite cold, so I had a pre-swim cold shower on the poolside- this took my breath away but made the pool water feel warm. The bike course is on quiet lanes and there were plenty of marshals and signs. As the run is 4 laps of the park where car parking and supporters are all gathered, you end the NW Triathlon surrounded by support, buoyant music, and commentary., and it’s also possible to end the event with a post-race picnic. I think it’s a very good first triathlon, and a good one for people who want to swim outside in an open air pool.
  • Did the event in 2018

    My first tri. Generally v good. Lots of good info online beforehand etc. Course was pretty good.

    Was on poolside in time for race brief but it didn’t happen in time for my start time. T1 was a little cramped. Results took ages to be posted online.

    Otherwise, very easy to participate. I’ll be back.

  • Did the event in 2017

    My first triathlon and an excellent event in every area, but where were the toilets at the start/finish?

Nottingham Sprint Triathlon

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.

    loved the race from the very beginning. quite fast
  • Did the event in 2018

    my second time at Nottingham sprint and this year it was an ETU qualifier, so Everyman and his disc wheel and pointy helmet was here.The water was lovely and warm, perfect conditions. The organisers do a fantastic job and the set up Is fabulous. The bike course is 4 laps of the 2k lake, so just under 20k. Closed roads, flat and straight...don’t forget to save something in the tank for the 1 loop 5k run of the lake before hitting the red carpet finish.
  • Did the event in 2017

    I first raced this event in 2015 as a qualifier and enjoyed the event. The field was much smaller with it not being a qualifier this year, shame as its a great event and run well (like all OSB events).  OSB events always run smoothly and are well organised which is exactly what you want on race day. Swim was chilly (about 14 degrees), one large loop and nice wave sizes so there wasnt as much violence in the swim as most open water swim starts. The bike was 4 laps round the lake, surface isnt great but its still a nice fast flat circuit. The run is a flat and fairly fast but draining when you feel like your not getting closer to the finish as you can see it for almost all the 5km run as its one lap round the lake. Nice atmosphere and the event was run smoothly start to finish despite the awful weather. Also a great event for spectators as you get to see all the swim, 4 times on the bike and can see on the run so get to watch most the race. Would recommend to all ability athletes.

  • Did the event in 2018

    Did this as was recommended by a friend. It didn’t disappoint but the weather was incredibly hot. My first OW swim, well marshalled and felt safe at all times. Wave size not too bad. Lifeguards helped us unzip wetsuits due to heat before running up the hill to T1. Bike course
  • Did the event in 2018

    Finally got my chance to race at Blenheim after years of wanting to. I know a lot of people say the price is steep but on reflection, I really think it’s money well spent. This is without a doubt one of the premier triathlon events I’ve ever done.If I was making recommendations, here’s a few:- Get there early and give yourself time in transition etc. It’s a busy place, you won’t be queueing etc, that side of things is very efficient, but you still have to get from the car to registration to transition and then on to lake, there’s a bit of walking. If you’re like me and want to be able to take your time getting set up, definitely build that time in so you can relax. I made some mistakes because I was rushed that caught me out at the start of the bike- Race pack, the number was a bit flimsy and I had to punch two holes in it to fit my race belt, was worried I was going to rip it or it fly off on the bike at any moment. Bike and helmet stickers were irritating with the peel-off back too, took me ages to get them off which didn’t help when I was rushed- Run water station, just one which normally would be fine, was turning into a real hot day though so I’d always make provision for an extra one. This is a really big event, and see no reason why this can’t be achieved. Outside of all of this, I can only say this race is AWESOME. It’s a totally honest course, undulation in both the bike and run, and a hill straight out of the swim to get up to transition. It’s a beautiful route from start to finish with great crowds and on-course commentators whipping up the atmosphere. You can have fun but also if you really want to push yourself, the course is challenging enough to give you a real test.  Finish chute is brilliant, I have a young family and my son ran down over the finish line with me which I reckon is my favourite moment in triathlon yet.Definitely do this race, there really is nothing not to like!
  • Did the event in 2017

    This was my first triathlon and it was a good choice. Registration was easy and there was reqgular contact via e mail and an excellent preparatory information pack. The marshalls were outstanding and my family loved the supporters experience. The run from the swim to the transition area is quite ling and up hill (as a word of warning).Outstanding event

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.

Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon

The Cholmondeley event attracts over 1600 competitors to the beautiful countryside of Cheshire, offering the quintessential Castle Triathlon Series experience of competitive and fun racing, an epic castle backdrop and a stunning rural location.

All races at the 200-year-old Cholmondeley Castle start by launching into an open-water swim in Deer Park Mere Lake, transitioning on to a bike route that circumnavigates Bickerton Hill, which is the southern most tip of the Peckforton Hlls. There will be one cycle lap for the Super Sprint and two laps for both the Sprint Plus and Olympic distances.

The run passes through the estate grounds, which date back to the 12th Century, and has one lap for the Super Sprint and two laps for the Sprint Plus and Olympic races. Triathletes will finish their Cholmondeley race experience by sprinting down the main lawn to the finish line with Cholmondeley Castle as a fitting backdrop.

The Cholmondeley Castle Triathlon takes place in the beautiful grounds of Cholmondeley Castle, where the Cholmondeley family have resided since the Norman era of the 12th Century. The estate features extensive parkland covering 500 acres including two lakes, the larger of which, Deer Park Mere, is the setting for the open-water swim section of the triathlon.

To the south of Cholmondeley Castle, Tower Hill is the highest point of the run section, where athletes will be rewarded with panoramic views of the Beeston and Peckforton Hills, which they will have just covered on the undulating bike section, with the Welsh Hills looming in the distance.

  • Did the event in 2018

    This was our first triathlon, we entered for the Guantlet, the half ironman distance. Overall, this has to be one of the best experiences of my life. The day was hot but the feed stations etc. were all good. It was a great challenge and one I am pleased to have completed and now I am up for more. There is only one thing which has been on my mind since the race was the A road used for a large portion of the ride (just under a third). We prepared ourselves by reading the course breakdown in great detail on multiple occasions. The cycle route for the Guantlet riders was a 3 loop course, however, 30km of the 96km ride was on one of the busiest A roads I have cycled on in my life, living in London I am no stranger to traffic. 10km of the circuit (30km total) was on a truly frightening road. I experienced several missed calls myself and witness multiple others. I was shocked to say the least and it was a scary thought knowing I had to hit that road two more times. At least 5 km of it was badly maintained with potholes etc. The briefing and route card did say it was a busy road but if I was go for a sunday ride, I would never choose that road, and I imagine most locals don't cycle it. Much of the road markings were solid lines for both sides of the road, this should make for some sensible driving and caustious (albiet illegal) overtaking of cyclists, nothing further from the truth could be true. If the local council will not allow for the road to be closed for the event (which I can understand) the route therefore needs to be addressed by the organisers. I am honestlysurprised I did not hear of or see any serious accidents. I totally understand that sections of the race might need to hit busy road, but a serious effort needs to be made to try avoid it at all costs. 30km on that road - I did not feel safe and was relieved when we finished the ride. I am not one to leave reviews normally, but I had to get that off my chest. I would like to highlight that this really was one of the best things I have ever done, and it has not put me off entering for another half iron or a castle series tri. I do feel that the cycle route needs to be reviewed though, for a duty of care and safety perspective. I think most competitors would be happy to do 4 loops of a shorter circuit if it means avoiding that road. The rest of the route was well marshalled and I certainly felt safe.Thanks to anyone who does read this.
  • Did the event in 2018

    This is the first year i have completed this event (The Gauntlet) and i must say, i thoroughly enjoyed it.Lovely venue, beautiful countryside, support from the locals/ spectators was great.Well thought out course, overall i thought it was a pretty seamless event from regristration through to completion. Thanks Castle Tri series for a great day!
  • Did the event in 2018

    Fantastic, friendly and well organised race.  Camping next to the start line can't be beaten. First time at a Gauntlet, but the friendliness of the other competitors and marshalls and well stocked feed stations made it an awesome day in the sunshine. The choir at the top of the climb on the bike route was a nice touch!  God job as always Castle Series team.

    Took part in the sprint tri in 2016. First ever open water triathlon, and was hooked from then on! The swim location is fantstic, bay is sheltered in most wind conditions so ideal for triathlon. Exit from sea is really easy up the slip way, so no scrambling through the sand. Bike has a few hills and tight bends to make it interesting and challenging, and the run along the beach is a good test at the end of the race! Great finishing line on the beach. Missed it in 2017 due to other commitments, but planning a return in 2018!

Welsh Triathlon Bala Team Relays

As part of Welsh Triathlons Multisport Weekend, The Bala Team Relays will provide a platform for established clubs to go head to head and compete for the Welsh National Club Relay Championship, as well as allowing newcomers to the sport the opportunity to get together and have a taste of what triathlon has to offer.

What is a Team Relay?
Unlike a traditional relay, where each competitor completes their individual elements before his or her team mate continues, each discipline needs to be completed by all participants before moving on to the next, resulting in a faster, more exciting event.

Each member of the team individually swims 300 metres before moving onto the bike leg, each athlete individually completes the 9km course, until the last team member passes over the timing chip to the first team member to start the 2km run section.

Will include the Welsh National Team Relay Championship for Home Nation members and clubs, as well as open team and mixed team categories. Teams consisting of four individual Home Nations members from the same club will compete for the Welsh National Club Relay Championships, while other teams will compete within the open relay category. National Championship awards will be awarded to Male and Female across Junior, Senior and Vet 40 and Vet 50 categories, whilst mixed awards will be awarded to Junior, Senior and Vet 40 Categories.

If you are unsure of your team classification, please email [email protected] and we will confirm.

  • Did the event in 2016

    A good local triathlon that could be made much more of an event.  Everything ran smoothly with good marshalling and easy navigation. Better advertising and a bit more razzmatazz would make this an even better tri.
  • Did the event in 2016

    This is my second Erewash tri and the improvements made from last year are better marshalling and better organised than last year. For whatever the reason just seemed to run smoother. Happy with the marshalls around the road route although I will say it is open road for the most part. Run coarse nice and flat and I found it more helpful in the pool that each lane had a Marshall that counted the lengths done.Will be back next year

Teams from all over the uk were busying about, racing, resting or getting ready to race.Registration was easy, the process staffed by helpful osb ladies! Team captains then have to dish out swim caps and bibs corresponding to the order you are going in. Once done, off to the start,and let the chaos commence!! The whole day is about triathlon and fun, and the 1 lap swim, 3 lap flat bike course and 1 lap run provided that. The transitions were manic, trying to spot your team mates, but so well organised they flowed.

    This was my 3rd year in a row and so t be the last. As usual OSB organise an excellent race. The logistics can be difficult to understand if you are new to this format but everyone is on hand to help. The lake wasn’t as bad as previous years and there is now a “dive” to get in if you want. Simple course around the lake and can’t wait for next years race.

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 event in 2018

    This is a great triathlon for a beginner. It is based in a big grassy park where there is cheap all day parking, an event village and toilets and showers. The swim and T1 are a 10 minute walk away at Nantwich open air brine pool. The swim and race briefing were well-managed and there was no need for flip-flops because there was matting between the swim and T1. It was a sunny day and the open air pool was a bonus. I'd been for a recce swim the week before and the water had seemed colder than it did on the day, but the recce swim prompted me to get my head and shoulders under the water before I was counted off to start.The bike leg was on mainly quiet lanes and was well-marshalled. The route was gently undulating and a race car drove around the route throughout the event. Arrival into T2 was easy and good for supporters to get close. Water was available straight out of T2 and at the start of every lap of the run. I'm not usually keen on running on grass, but the grass in Bariny Park was flat and even and I was fine in road running shoes. The run is 4 laps and goes right through the event village and the atmosphere created by the picnicking spectators. I'd recommend this triathlon to first timers, and to anyone keen on an open air pool. The pool was a stand-out feature for me, as was the, as yet unmentioned, post race massage.

Outlaw Half Nottingham

The Outlaw Half Nottingham is one of Britains most popular events, often selling out in a matter of minutes. The Middle Distance event covers a 1.2 mile open water swim, 56 mile bike ride and a 13.1 mile run, which must be completed in less than nine hours.

The swim takes place in the regatta lake in wave starts. A single out and back course makes it easy to navigate and then with a quick escape via a very short transition, you are straight out on your bike. The roads around Nottinghamshire offer great surfaces for fast riding and only the odd short climb to challenge you. The bike course will be fast, but don't underestimate it - especially if it's a windy day!

On returning to the National Water Sports Centre, the flat multi-lap course around the lake and river path offers a feed station every mile or so and is lined with supporters willing you all the way to the finish line.

The start, the swim, much of the run and the finish are all conveniently located together, making excellent spectator and family viewing at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham.

There is on-site camping, family friendly activities as well as excellent city centre hotels just two to three miles down the road. There are thousands of car parking spaces available; making this is the perfect athlete and spectator experience.

  • 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 :)

    Organiser replied:
    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 :)

  • Did the Legend 71.6 in 2018

    I completed the snowman legend 71.6 on Sunday August 5th. It was my first half iron man triathlon and my first time to Wales. I travelled from Norfolk 300 miles away opposite side of Country. When I signed up initially I did not realise the physical toughness of the event I just wanted to take the next step up from Olympic distance. The final 5 miles run up and down Moel siabod was a real test of mental strength. I finished in 23 rd position, and sub 7 hours so I was very happy. I am proud to be a snowman legend and Snowdonia has a piece of my heart. Alexander pennington.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Really enjoyed this race at Plas y Brenin. It was a nice lake swim and the temperature was a warm 16.5 degrees. Mass start which made it a bit chaotic at the start but a nice large well marked out lake. The bike course was a nice run into Betws-y-coed with a loop and then back uphill and back to the mountain centre. The run was a trail run with a tough climb in the middle. Overall a well organised event, well sign posted, with excellent marshals. Really enjoyed taking part in the race and would recommend the race to other triathletes who like to race in beautiful surroundings.
  • Did the event in 2018

    What a day of racing, this is an amazing race, so full of sights, sounds and fantastic support.It all starts of at plas y brenin, national mountain center in north wales, with a 400 mtr swim in lyn mymbyr (be warned it can be cold) before a 200mtr run into T1.T1 is superbly organised with rows of racking where you change out of your wetsuit to start the 31k bike ride.This goes from the center down along the A5 towards betws y coed past swollow falls then left along the A470 to llanrwst turning left again on the return leg to betws then right back along the A5 to plas y brenin.Upon returning to transistion you change into your running gear for the 5k run 1st heading out and back to a turning point besides the A5 on trail witch is well directed.back to the transistion area you proceed up the beginning of moel siobad turning off and back to the finish line.This is an excellent starter for a 1st time tri as it isnt to strenious of mountainous but offers excellent views of outstanding beuaty.10/10

Outlaw Triathlon

One of Nottingham's key sporting events, the Outlaw has become (almost) even more legendary than Robin Hood, the Major Oak and Brian Clough!

Those who have conquered the Outlaw Triathlon are remembered in local folklore for having outwitted the Sheriff to complete a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run. As long as you can cover the distance in 17 hours or less, you will become an Outlaw. Six men have completed it every year since the Outlaw was launched in 2010; can they come back and finish it for a ninth time this year? And will you be joining them as a competitor or spectator?

The event begins with a mass swim start in the Regatta Lake at Nottingham's National Water Sports Centre. Its an out and back swim course which is easy to navigate. With transition right next to the swim exit you'll have every opportunity to set a super-quick time and even faster escape onto your bike.

The roads around Nottinghamshire are ideal for fast riding (time trial bike friendly) and there is only the odd short climb to challenge you, but dont underestimate the wind!

On returning to the National Water Sports Centre our merry men will rack your bike and see you out on to the flat run course around the lake and on to the River Trent path. You'll pass Trent Bridge, the City Ground, Wilford Suspension Bridge and the Victoria Embankment. The multi-lap course, which has been measured by UK Athletics, offers a feed station every mile or so, and is lined with supporters willing you all the way to the finish line.

On arrival at the finish you will receive a hero's welcome and be crowned a modern day Outlaw. Then you can enjoy the festival atmosphere with thousands of spectators cheering the athletes home until the sun finally sets on a spectacular day of racing.

Outlaw has been recognised as 220 Triathlon Magazine's Event of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 & 2017 and British Triathlon's Event of the Year in 2011.

    This was my first full distance race. I was previously familiar with OSB Events from the Half Outlaw at Holkham. I don't have anything negative to say about planning, registration or execution of the race and - if I ever race this distance again - I would definitely sign up for the Outlaw again.

    Completed my first outlaw this year having finished the half in 2017. It is so well organised, instructions and briefing were done really well and the  organisers handled a late change to the swim (due to weather) very smoothly. You can also camp nearby.The most memorable highlights were the support crews around the course who were just amazing. And of course the ability to cross the finish line with a loved one if you want to!

  • Did the Sprint & Sprint Relay in 2018

    This was my first triathlon race and i will definitely be entering future tri's! The pre race information was top notch and helped me to get through the event without a hitch. Only thing I wasn't warned about were the race number tattoos.... It was horrid to remove from my leg hair and i resulted in clipping the leg hair off to remove haha! :) A small price to pay for an epic race! Look forward to booking my next race with the let's do this team! Hurrah!
  • Did the event in 2018

    I'd entered this as my first middle distance as I'd enjoyed the South Coast event done by UK tri last year.

    Early registration was opened up a few days before, so I was able to pick up my number the day before, it was still available on the day though. Parking is available nearby in town, though the car park we used was filling up early.
    The bike/transition area was quite big, at least for the early mid distance wave. It's really good to have toilets in the transition area.

    The swim was good, a very wide start area, so not too much of a washing machine start (though the later olympic start looked busier). The two lap route was clearly marked.

    Transition was a short walk on a mat to the bikes, and out through a gate, past some houses and onto a main road. On the whole, the road wasn't too busy, the route was very well signposted and there were marshals at the junctions (I did see a motorbike marshal come past as well). On the second lap there is a feed station with drinks, energy bars, gels, and fresh water bottles.

    The course was undulating, with only a couple of short steepish climbs. There were some quite good straights in parts, but the last 10k or so on both laps was into a headwind and hard.

    Back in transition, you leave through a different gate and out onto the run course. The profile said that this was flat, but there is a rise across an old railway bridge which hurt every time. You initally go out along a road to a turn point, come back and then turn alongside the lake through the woods before going through the transition point. There is a feed station at the turn point with drinks and energy bars, and wonderful encouraging marshals.

    There weren't too many people around by the time we finished, but those who were there were wonderfully encouraging, and there was quite a bit of camaraderie between those at the back, encouraging each other.

    It was a tough day out, and on the whole I enjoyed the event. I'm not sure if I could hack another middle distance, but will do more olympic distances. On the whole, I thought it was well organised by UK triathlon.

    They had run out of my size of T shirt by the end , but made a note of my number to send it onto me (I need to chase them up about this).

  • Did the event in 2018

    I got there at least an hour and half before my start and was glad because I had to try four different car parks and in the end parked in a lay by and walked back.
    First one I’ve done here and enjoyed it but would have liked some mile markers on both the bike and run as there were none.

As for the markers, because the bike course has two laps (middle distance) and a different course (Sprint and Super Sprint) then it is very difficult to put markers out. Thats the same with the run course being multi lapped. So to sumerise, yes we will improve the parking for 2019, but unfortunely we won't be able to put out markers or the two courses. Once again, thank you for your comments and we hope to see you back again next year. Keith (Race Director)

  • Did the event in 2016

    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.
