Tristar Milton Keynes will host a TriStar111 and a TriStar33.3, ideal for beginners and experienced triathletes who can now enjoy the new spirit of this well-known fun format, which offers an easy recovery for the athletes. Milton Keynes is one of a handful of new destinations being introduced to the ever-popular TriStar Series in 2012, which recently announced TriStar Salzkammergut, TriStar Cannes, TriStar Deauville and TriStar Berlin.
Milton Keynes is centrally located in the south east of England, less than an hour’s journey from London, and will be the first host city for a TriStar event in the UK. The TriStar111 Milton Keynes (1km swim/100km cycle/10km run) is the premiere of this international triathlon series in England.
It’s being jointly organised by Star Events and Big Cow Events, who have a great track record in developing British triathlon and hosting high quality sports events.
In addition to the 111 distance the event will also offer a TriStar 33.3 ideal for beginners and novices thanks to its shorter distance of 300m swim, 30km cycle and 3km run.
Tristar Milton Keynes will take place at the picturesque Emberton Country Park. The run course itself loops around the whole country park including the attractive conservation area. It’s a fast flat course and ideal for spectators and families alike who will be close to the action and see all the athletes pass on each lap of the run course.
The cycle route covers three loops of undulating country roads and circumnavigates a number of pretty villages including Weston Underwood where famous poet William Cowper (1786) once wrote ‘it’s one of the prettiest villages in the kingdom’.
