Beginning with a 1500m double-looped swim in the large Weston Park lake, surrounded by woodland and birdlife, this is certainly a picturesque triathlon. Exit the water and make your way across open parkland to transition for the first time.
Head out on your bike for 2 laps of our mixed-terrain trails, created over the winter of 2022/23 especially for this event. There will be a mix of gravel, technical single track and open grassland, testing a wide variety of riding skills. With two laps of the route, you can expect to get faster as you become more familiar with the trail features and turns. When you gain sight of the lake for the second time, you're heading back into Transition and the next leg of the race.
With your running shoes on you’ll feel the full charm of the Weston Park estate. The two-lap route will initially send you running through open parkland, towards the southern boundary of the estate, before circling around to the beautiful woodland approaching the Weston Park house. You’ll pass the stunning temple pool, darting around paths dwarfed by ancient trees. Popping out of the woodland to impressive views of the Weston Park house, you'll head back through open parkland towards the finish line; don't start your sprint too early, there's still 1km to go!
