Last Minute Triathlon
Being our final triathlon of the season, 'Last Minute' is the perfect name. We have found over the years that this event attracts many of those competitors that have raced the same course earlier in the season at the Southwell Sprint Triathlon, returning to see how much they have improved during the season. The other thing that we have noticed is this event also attracts a lot of first timers. We believe that people have been bombarded seeing triathlons on TV, at the local leisure centre, heard other triathletes bragging about this or that so have decided to have a go before hibernating over the winter. And why not, this is a great event for all, seasoned triathletes or nervous novices alike. We use the identical course that we use for the Southwell Sprint Triathlon, the only difference is this event is much more relaxed. We like to think of it more like an end of season social gathering than a race. The course covers a 400m pool swim, a bike ride of just over 17km, which features a climb right at the start and then undulates before flattening out before you turn around and head back to T2. The two-lap run is also quite challenging, but fun with plenty of support on the climb out of transition. For 18 years triathletes have enjoyed testing themselves on this course, many coming back year-on-year! This event will be up to the same high standard as all of our others throughout the season, with chip timing, first class medical cover and secure transition, but it might just be a bit more laid back. This event has filled more than a month before the closing date a number of times in the past 5 years, so don't leave it until the last minute - enter today!
