This blast of a triathlon is full of fun!! Held over a short distances so perfect for first timers taking their first foray in to triathlon or equally fun for seasoned triathletes who want a short event to practice their race skills without impacting on their training schedule! Oh and it's a 1pm start so we can all get a lay in!!
The event starts with a 400m swim in the gorgeous waters of the Blue Lagoon which takes in a swim from the beach and after a short swim out you turn left towards the dive area and swim to the far end of lagoon exiting at the steps near the gate. After a quick transition it's out on to the quiet country roads around the lagoon for a 10km blast of a bike which is ideal for novices or serious racers alike! After another speedy transition it's time to hit the trails around the lagoon for a 2.5km run!
With identical events at the start and end of the season you can challenge yourself to beat your time after a summer of training!!
The event is chip timed!

The Home of our event is the idyllic Blue Lagoon in the heart of Yorkshire. The Blue Lagoon is the only dedicated Open Water Swim Venue in Yorkshire and one of the best, due to its clarity & lack of weed! Nestled in 32 acres of woodland, meadow, scrubland and of course aquatic areas with a plethora of wildlife it truly is an amazing place. The Blue Lagoon has been continually developed over the past 10 years and boasts a beach entry, and slipway exit, perfect for our Amphibians!
