Triathlons always follow the same format; swim like a fish, bike like you stole it, and run like the wind.

The first UTC Triathlon will be a Sprint Tri on 31st May 2020. This will be a 400m pool swim, 28k Bike ride and a 5k run.  This will be the event to aim for as part of the annual 'try a Tri' event so get the message out to friends and family and find out more info. Great for a couch to tri package and also a good one for those who have a weak spot (swimming, biking or running.. or all of them!) and want to get some coaching from our British Triathlon coaches. They Rock!

Ulverston Tri Club are also co-hosting with COLT, the third annual open water triathlon on 27th September 2020 at the YMCA Lakeside South Camp, at the foot of Lake Windermere..... cracking venue! Tri Lakeland and Kendal Tri Club also looking to come on board and of course a few from around these parts as this year it is open to all!

The race starts at 10am (very reasonable we think) with a 750m swim in Windermere before a 20k road bike through the lanes on the Western side of the lake and finally a 5k off-road run through the woods and trails around the site and alongside the lake. Mandatory race brief at 9.45am to be held in transition area. Registration opens at 8.30am.

750m swim supported by kayaks and rescue boat. We follow BT rules on wetsuits; below 14 degrees a wetsuit is mandatory, above 14 degrees it is up to you. There is opportunity to take off your wetsuit after the swim and leave it in a marshalled area on the lakeside.

You can also have a pair of trainers there to make the 500m dash from the swim exit up to transition. If you would like to leave a box for your stuff lakeside this is quite acceptable.
