Event Course

The swim will take place in the beautiful lakes of the Cotswolds. The event will be a deep-water start with swimmers taking part in the same wave. Once completing the swim, you will prepare for the cycle stage for a two lap course around the Cotswolds taking in some fantastic scenery. The cycle course is fairly flat with a couple of gentle sloping inclines. Once completed you will drop your bike off for a spectator friendly run course around the lake.

Venue Information

Lake 62 is a privately owned well kept lake in the Cotswolds. This lake has been unused for many years, keeping it one of the finest. Its size and shape allows for some great spectating at all our events here and provides a base for triathletes wishing to take part in a medium sized event on a flat profile. 

We also host training and coaching sessions from this lake, for further information about these days, please see the training page here.

A combination of strengthened joints and also fitness will aid in your successful completion of this event and assist with your recovery after the event. As you will be mixing disciplines, we recommend that you train this way by combining your sessions back to back, especially your bike to run. This will make your triathlon experience much more enjoyable.
