The Event 

Are you looking to step up from a Super Sprint or Sprint triathlon without a daunting Olympic distance swim? Then we have just the thing...

We launched the UK Ultimate ONE as a precursor to our 'iron-distance' Ultimate and Ultimate Half Triathlons. 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. The event covers one lap of the swim, bike and run courses taken on by the Ultimate (4 laps) and Ultimate Half (2 laps) competitors giving you a taste of the 'iron-distance' course with achievable distances for that next step up. The peaceful & scenic venue of Dearnford Lake is centrally located in Shropshire on the border of North Wales and is surrounded by Cheshire, Staffordshire, Herefordshire & Worcestershire. Shropshire is approximately 3 hours from London, an hour or so from Manchester and only 40 minutes from Birmingham.

  • Freshwater lake swim with no current

  • Picturesque countryside cycle & run routes, ideal for PB's

  • Swim start, transition and run finish all within a stone's throw of each other

  • Spectator friendly venue, great for supporting friends and family

  • Fantastic on-site facilities including parking, lakeside cafe, kids play area and camping/glamping & caravanning

  • Finishers medal

  • Prizes for overall male & female winners and age group prizes

Competitor Feedback

Great event yesterday, my first Olympic distance, having spectated last year and planting a seed that I might be able to do one too on such a great course :) so friendly and well-organised and great location for athletes and spectators on all three legs. My Tri -Harder support crew were in fine voice, with their inspirational boards. Could not have been a better day if it tried :) Smith Shine
