We launched the UK Ultimate 1/4 as a precursor to our 'iron-distance' Ultimate Half Triathlon.
For those of you who find the 1500m Olympic swim a daunting prospect this event offers a fantastic challenge upgrade with just a 0.6mile swim (965m). The event covers one lap of the swim, one lap of the bike and two laps of the run course taken on by the Ultimate 1/2 competitors
