The Avenger is launched

News from the organisers of a new middle-distance race set Warwickshire

The Avenger is a new addition to the triathlon calendar and is set in the stunning grounds of Ragley Hall in the heart of England, and takes place on the quiet roads and paths nearby.

Whether you are a first time middle distance eventer or a seasoned triathlete who wants to race in a stunning setting, the Avenger will have something for you.

The swim is in Ragley Hall lake, which is already used by triathletes for open water swimming, the undulating bike route is part of the National Road Race Championship cycling course and the run route takes place in the Hall’s scenic grounds, mainly off-road.

Priced at only £99, The Avenger is also great value for money and it comes with the same high level of organisation that you expect from a Raceways event.
