New for 2015: Children's Open Water Aquathlon

Children's aquathlon is a wetsuit swim followed by a run. The swim will take place around buoys in the lake. Following transition where the competitors remove their wetsuits and pull on their running shoes the run route will be at lakeside and round an adjacent field, in sight at all times.

Wetsuit Hire

Zone3 are our official wetsuit suppliers for 2015 and offer 2XU and Orca, the leading brands in the Triathlon market, for hire or to buy. Their wetsuits are designed to make your swim faster by offering buoyancy. They can be hired for one, two or four weeks, or for a full season (April to September). If you prefer to purchase the wetsuit after the triathlon or the season then you can be confident that, if well looked after, this suit will last for many years. Both carry a 2 year warranty.
