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

Ulverston Tri Club are hosting their first ever open water triathlon on 23rd September 2018 from the YMCA centre, South Camp at the foot of Windermere.

The race starts at 9am 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 meadows around the site and alongside the lake. Mandatory race brief at 8.45am to be held in transition area. Registration opens at 8am.




750m swim supported by kayaks and RIB 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.
