UK Triathlon Event Reviews

Mark Lysons - UK Ultimate Triathlon

This event is incredibly well run, with the best marshalls in the business. The lake is shallow and warm, the bike flat and easy to navigate with some nice fast sections, the run is around the lake and on closed roads. I would give it 6 stars if I could.

With COVID19 it was a strange staggered start, which was organised and worked beautifully. Straight into the water, straight up to speed. By the time you're out of the lake people are so spread out the social distancing rules didn't really matter.

I urge anyone and everyone to do this event. Whether you're trying the distance bfor the first time or you're a super fast experienced triathete, this event is for you. Just save one place for me. I'll be back in 2021.
