Set in South Lincolnshire near the historic town of Stamford- an open water event set in a stunning water sports environment with superb facilities. The venue is faultless & the price of your entry includes a post race meal of jacket potato, 1 filling (plus a bottle of water) served at Race Village next to the finish line.
In 2018 we made 2 changes to improve the race experience for everyone. We have made an arrangement with Tarmac who are kindly letting us use their overflow car parking space on hard ground next door to the venue so a 3min walk from the car gets you to transition! LOTS more easy & free car parking for everyone!
The swim is set in one of the beautiful, clean, spring fed lakes where the temperature in 2015 was 23 degrees & 19degrees last year. (Wet suits are optional). Swim to either the first, second or third boye. The new bike entry / exit out of the venue now completely avoids the busy entrance of the Water Park and now brings you out from the side of the park onto Kings Street. The SuperSprint and the Sprint have a 1 lap course. The Olympic follows the Sprint course over 2 laps. The SuperSprint remains fairly flat, whilst the Sprint and the Olympic have a little more elevation, yet still takes in some beautiful scenery. Staying within the private park, the run follows the road running past the sailing centre with lakeside views. The residents come out to cheer you on making it a friendly atmosphere & gives you the encouragement you need for the final leg.
You can enter aquathlon, aquabike (sprint & olympic distance) or three different triathlon distances making it inclusive to everyone.
