Returning to Challenge Weymouth this September? The organisers have made some minor tweaks to the bike course that you’ll want to know about, including the possibility of a few more roundabouts.
The route has been altered to make it more spectator friendly, with the second lap starting just before the entrance of Lodmoor Country Park, where transition is located. Last year’s female winner Eleanor Haresign says that the route is better for racers and spectators, but suggests athletes might like to practise their roundabout skills.
Last year’s Challenge Weymouth saw more than 1,200 athletes take part across both half- and iron-distance races, with British athletes Joe Skipper and Eleanor Haresign taking gold in the men’s and women’s races respectively.
This year’s race returns on 13 September and will host the ETU European Long Distance Triathlon Championships – a major coup for the organisers considering the event is only in its second year. For more info head here.
