DB Max also use the same venue to organise the Inter-Services Standard Distance Triathlon, and the Army Standard Distance Triathlon Championships.

The event starts as always with a 1500mtr swim in the famously clear waters of lake 32 and consists of a 1 lap swim. It is then out of the swim ramp and in to the nearby transition.

It is then out on to the fast, flat bike course of 40k. The route takes in some of the most picturesque areas and villages of the Cotswold including Ewen, Kemble, Crudwell, Charlton, Minety and Ashton Keynes. The road surfaces in the area are very good, and there are long stretches of the course to really open up the taps and go for it.

After a quick dash back in to transition it is out on to the 3 lap run course which goes round both lake 31 and lake 32. The course is pancake flat and is predominantly off road on hard pack trail so is very fast.

All these things combine to make this the perfect venue for a Triathlon and mean the #51Fiver Cotswold Standard Distance Triathlon is the ideal event for beginners, the experienced athlete and those looking for a standard distance PB.
