Hundreds of triathletes are expected for the first Tallington Lakes Triathlon in South Lincolnshire this summer, taking place near Stamford on Sunday 5 July 2015.
An open-water event, the organisers say a spring-fed lake guarantees beautifully clear, warm water for first timers finding their comfort zone or seasoned triathletes hunting their new personal best race time.
Local countryside will host a single or double loop bike course depending on chosen distance, sprint or standard. The final leg, the run, takes in lakeside views all the way to the finish line.
“Tallington Lakes is a hidden gem in South Lincolnshire and provides the perfect backdrop for our triathlon,” said race director Jason Randall. “We’re excited to bring this event to the local community and look forward to welcoming triathletes from across the UK on Sunday 5th July.
Sprint triathletes will take on a 750m swim, 24km bike, 5km run – the perfect distance for first timers and novice competitors. The more seasoned triathlete or fitness enthusiast looking to take on a longer distance challenge will conquer a 1,500m swim, 46km cycle and 10km run. Entry fees start at £45.
The event is chip timed and regular water stations are offered throughout the course. On the race village a bike mechanic will be on hand for all competitors along with a sports therapist for a post race massage.
Water-ski, wakeboard, jet-ski and canoe facilities should keep the family entertained. For accommodation, lakeside lodges are available along with 88 camping and caravanning pitches in landscaped surroundings.
