Triathlon X new routes showcased in film
A film has been produced to showcase some of the new routes that will be taken by athletes competing in Triathlon X, one of the world’s toughest Ironmans.
The Ironman has moved to new venue Waterhead on the shores of Windermere, from Wasdale, and triathletes will be swimming in Windermere, cycling over all the Lakeland passes, and running a tough marathon to the top of Scafell Pike and back.
The film was made by Ambleside-based Steve Ashworth of Movie-It, the adventure specialists.
Event director Mark Blackburn said: “We are really proud to be staging this race here this summer in the heart of the Lakes and using our amazing local terrain. The film captures everything that’s best about adventure in the Lakes.”
The organisers are planning a weekend of entertainment, including live music, for spectators and supporters.
What do you think? Should we have included it in Iron-distances: the 7 toughest?
Do you think it is going to be tougher in it's new location?
