Partnership

This event is being organised in joint partnership with The Unholy Rollers. An autonomous cycling group (there is no leader or management, they are self regulating). Their aim is to pair and introduce riders and groups to encourage cycling. To find out more about The Unholy Rollers, please join their group here.

Event Course

The cycle routes will take place around The Cotswolds and rural Wiltshire. The cycle course should not be underestimated as there are some challenging climbs on the 78km route. For an easier option or to be more favourable to beginners, then you should choose the shorter route. A feed station will be positioned between the two major peaks on the 78km route.

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.

You should ensure that you train your body for endurance multisport events and build up your stamina. This will enhance your overall fitness. 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.
