Welcome to the 7th running of these fabulous lake swims taking place at the ever popular Tri2O Swim Centre on the outskirts of Reading.

The Big Dog Swim will provide a great test for the more experienced swimmer and a perfect start to the racing season. This 3.8 swim will be an ideal time trial for those looking at Ironman events through the summer and will be brilliant time in the water for those that just love and swim and swim.

The Doggy Paddle swim event offers the perfect opportunity to those looking to conquer the Olympic distance swim portion of a triathlon for the first time, to those wanting to practice that unique feeling of a mass deep water start and perhaps just trying to improve their swim times.

Welcome to the 3rd Mapledurham Ten.

The inaugural event in December 2015 proved such a great hit, we simply had to bring it back again. The first of our winter trail running series, along side the fabulous Muddy Welly & Gut Buster events, the Mapledurham Ten takes in superb, but challenging, 10k & 10 Mile courses from the wonderful Mapledurham House near Caversham.

The Mapledurham Ten gives you a perfect challenge over either our 10k or 10 Mile courses. In typical My Sporting Times style, the courses will give you a mixture of surfaces to cover, most likely some mud and some ups and downs too.

The 10k and 10 Mile courses are the same until approx.1 Mile/1.6k when the 10k runners will split to the left. The courses will soon re-join and stick together until 6.5 Miles/6.5k. The courses ultimately re-join with 1 mile to go to the finish. Keep an eye out for signage for your distance and listen to the marshals! The courses are both multi terrain, with sections on footpaths and bridleways, woodland trails, private roads and country lanes. Road running shoes should be fine unless the weather is wet consistently wet in the build up.
