A Day In The Lakes Triathlon

Pooley Bridge, Ullswater, Cumbria

Organiser's Description

A tough, mixed terrain half Iron Man distance triathlon in beautiful surroundings. The swim will be in the crystal clear Ullswater; the cycle ride takes in some legendary climbs; a trail run along the base of Barton Fell to finish. A fantastic course, possibly the most challenging in the Country. Also on offer is a 1/4 Iron distance race, with no major climbs but it is an extremely good bike route on fabulous roads with enough undulation to keep the climbers happy.

The challenging mostly off-road run was amended in 2019 and is now exactly 13.2 miles. The Quarter Iron run route is also challenging but beautiful. Both routes have spectacular views along Ullswater.


2000m swim, 56 mile bike, 13.2 mile run
1000m swim, 28 mile bike, 6.7 mile run
