Bike course here.

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 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. The run lap is 1.5km and is great for spectators. You have lots of opportunities for photos, hydrating at the water station and you can see your family and friends to cheer you on.

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.

Training for this event

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.
