Come a take part in our first triathlon of the 2019 season set in ‘The jewel in Nottinghamshire’s crown’ - Southwell.
The Southwell Triathlon is back again for another year and will again be the first event of our Midlands Series.
This sprint triathlon takes place in the historic market town of Southwell and consists of a 400m swim which will take place in the Southwell Leisure Centre’s 25m pool followed by a 17.6km cycle finishing with a two lap 5km run.
This is one of the best sprint triathlons to take on for your first dabble with the sport. This event has always had a high percentage of first-timers and almost a third of our atheletes are novices.
The Southwell Triathlon route does feature a few inclines, we wouldn’t say these were mountains but the first part of the run has earnt itself the name “The Southwell Slope”! Regardless of these inclines, Southwell is a great event for athletes of all abilities who would like to challenge themselves.
“This is quite a challenging course which is great, really enjoyed this as my first race of the season. The marshals’ and volunteers were great and really encouraging. “
Event Location: Southwell Rugby Club, Park Lane, Southwell, Nottingham, NG25 0QN
