New run course and name for Windsor tri
One of the UK’s most popular triathlons will become known as the Nuffield Health Royal Windsor Triathlon when it returns on 18 June 2017, and will feature a new run course that brings participants right into the heart of the Royal park.
For the first time the run of the Windsor Triathlon will take participants fully onto Royal grounds, running from the gates of the castle and into gorgeous Windsor Great Park, including the spectacular Long Walk, right in front of the world famous Windsor Castle.
Since 1990 the event’s unmistakeable run course has been hugely popular, giving triathletes the opportunity to race on closed roads alongside the walls of the castle, home to The Queen and over 900 years of Royal history.
Nick Rusling, CEO of organisers Human Race Events, said “It’s only appropriate that an event so important to the history of triathlon is given the Royal seal of approval. It’s a great honour for us to be able to use the Royal prefix and the stunning Long Walk, which we know people are going adore running on. It’s something we have been working towards for many years, and now we cannot wait for the 18th June!”
Nuffield Health have become the title partner of the Royal Windsor Triathlon, and will have a big presence across the event weekend. Chris Blackwell-Frost, Chief Customer Officer at Nuffield Health said “We are delighted to be title partner for the Royal Windsor Triathlon. This iconic event in the Triathlon calendar is renowned for being one of the top Olympic distance triathlons in the UK and as the official Health and Wellbeing Partner for Human Race we believe that we are the perfect partners to give expert advice on race preparation, training, recovery and injury prevention.”
With over 2,000 people already signed up, an additional batch of places for the event are to be made available from www.humanrace.co.uk/triathlon .
