    • Did the Standard in 2018

      Race brief was very quiet. Did not hear a thing crammed into that small room. The queues for the toilet were timely. The marshalls were rubbish. One even told me to pull in and finish after 2 laps even though I was doing the standard. Which cost me time. Nobody was at the finish line. I had to rummage around for my own medal and cup of water at the end. I was then told to hurry up and get my kit nd bike out the transition area as the marshalls have had an incredibly long difficult day and want to go home.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    This is the 10th year of the Marlow Sprint & Olympic Distance Triathlon, consisting of a river swim, cycling and running. The event has attracted 1000s of participants over the year and is open to all levels of participant and encourages first time triathletes to the event.

    The Swim course is in the River Thames. It is designed to make even the weakest swimmer get a fast swim split.

    The Marlow Classic Half Iron Distance is the only long distance event in the Thames Valley and is a fairly flat scenic course taking in the views of Marlow and the surrounding areas.

    The Bike course for the Sprint Distance is 24.5km & the Olympic Distance is 37km. It is an out and back course and only has two hills, but otherwise fast and flat.

    The Run course for the Sprint Distance is a 1 Lap 5km route & the Olympic Distance is 2 Laps for a 10km. The course is on Tarmac and Grass Footpaths. It meanders back towards Marlow and into the finish at Higginson Park from the river tow path.

    The event is set to attract over 700 participants, as the world of endurance sports and triathlon creates massive demand for longer distance events over the shorter distances that have originally formed this great sport.

    • Did the Olympic in 2018

      1:The day was great however having to go and pick your pack up the day before was a pain......2:The biggest thing for me was the colour of the buoys in the water, they should of been yellow, red, or orange and not blue/purple as they were very hard to see while you are swimming!!!3:The water stations were very close together which didn't make much sense cold of done with one more water station.
    • Did the Olympic in 2018

      I had to make a extra trip to Marlow to pick up my race number. It could have been sent in the post and it seems it was possible to pick it up on the day. It was an hour round trip.
    • Did the Sprint in 2018

      Good race, well marked. People were drafting though and marshals didn't know the rules so cheating was going on but overall was good.

    • Did the Sprint in 2018

      There was just an area on the bike run where the roundabout to turn left to Box End didn't feel it was clearly enough with the marshall standing on the middle of the roundabout. Also after there were signs but with two events on wasn't sure if I was going the right way.
    • Did the Sprint in 2018

      Enjoyed it. the waterski ramps on the swim added a bit of focus but tgis just seemed to spready people out so the bumps and bangs didn't happen. Well marshalled bike and I just loved the run across country. great run out, thanks.

      If water was more easily available before the race so would not need to go to main building to fill water bottle.

    • Did the Sprint in 2018

      Really enjoyable, good venue, easy to get to, close transitions and very flat so PB friendly
    • Did the Standard in 2018

      Really excellent event. This was my first standard distance tri and as a beginner I really appreciated the simple layout. I can also appreciate the more experienced triathlete would like that it's an opportunity to push pace and times.

    • Did the Olympic in 2018

      It was my first olympic distance tri, I was pleased not to be battling waves and swell. Good atmosphere, some pretty serious racers were there probably for the flat course, but plenty of first timers too. This is a lap-heavy race, but at least you can't get lost. Well organised and good for spectators as you can see all the racing from one spot apart from the back straight on the bike loop.
    • Did the Sprint in 2018

      This was my first triathlon and it was so much fun, I want to do it all over again. It was really small, only about 20 women in my wave, but it was perfect for beginners. They played great music by the bike racks so the atmosphere was brilliant, everyone was so nice and the medals were sparkly which was a huge bonus :) The course is very flat, you do laps though so it could get boring maybe, there was a serious crosswind on the day, but it was great fun being able to see all the boys from their wave, and friends doing the Olympic. Lots of high fiving on the run, couldn't recommend this more for beginners, or people wanting a PB. I'll definitely be doing it next year.

      Great race, well organised and good place for first tri

    tri for life presents The Woburn Abbey Triathlon, set in one of the most spectacular locations in Bedfordshire. One of the UKs most loved triathlons, it has become famed for its iconic venue and unrivalled family experience. Highlights of the event include stunning views of The Abbey and deer park, great event village and the stunning cycle route through the picturesque roads surrounding Woburn.

    2016 saw the event take a leap into becoming of the UKs largest triathlons with the event expanding to two days of racing and the introduction of a new half iron distance.

    • Did the Olympic Triathlon in 2018

      Really enjoyable, open course with lovely scenery starting from and returning to the ground around woburn abbey.Swim course, good if a little weedy, bit of a scrum on swim start though.Bike course, enjoyable and picturesque, but quite hilly so very challenging and no real chance to settle into a rhythm. Some enjoyable technical downhill sections though.Run course, open and well laid out, really good support throughout (helped by the loops), well stocked and manned aid station!
