Take part in Norfolks favourite weekend of triathlon at the beautiful Fritton Lake, situated within the Somerleyton Estate.

Across the June weekend there are three distances to race; Super Sprint, Sprint and Standard. You also have the option to take on the Triple Tri Challenge, completing all three triathlons in one weekend!

As part of the massively popular Fritton Lake Triathlon Festival Weekend, this sprint distance triathlon event takes in the beautiful aspects provided by Fritton Lake and the surrounding area. It includes an open water 750m swim in the gorgeous Lake, followed by a 20km cycle leg along public roads around the Somerleyton Hall Estate. Once completing the bike course, the 5km run consists of two laps along marked woodland trails around the country park area.

With the swim taking place in the lake, the cycle on roads surrounding the Somerleyton estate and the off road run taking in woodland trails and paths this event is spectator friendly and one to bring the whole family too.

SwimRun Fritton Lake is returning TWICE in 2018 after a sold out and very successful inaugural 2017 event. This Summer edition of the Swedish style tillo event embodies fun and team work with a healthy serving of mud under a Summer sky. Run trails through the privately owned Somerleyton Estate and plunge into the beautiful Fritton Lake on this rare opportunity to experience the pristine woodlands and beautiful views in areas not normally accessible to the public. If you prefer your SwimRun colder, wetter & muddier then why not check out our Autumn edition of this event?

In teams of two you will complete a 10km course comprised of 6 run sections and 5 swims. Each leg offering stunning views and varied terrain. Always within 10m of your team mate on the swim and 100m on the run you will share the experience, the fun, the beauty and the suffering as you race the pre-marked course alternating between running and swimming.

Running in your wetsuit/swimming kit and swimming in your trainers you will travel through beautiful unspoilt surroundings immersed (literally!) in nature.

The route totals approximately 1800m of open water swimming, entering and exiting at various locations along the lake. Together with approximately 8.2 km of mixed terrain running you will explore both sides of the lake and cross the Norfolk/Suffolk boundary many times.
