Welcome to the Centurion Triathlon, the Vesuvius of multi-sport racing in SE England, with two races from which to choose: 100 mile Imperial or 100k metric.
You’ll need all your armour for the swim, which is two laps of Stanborough's southern lake for both events. Helmets in place, Imperial and Metric combatants will follow the same undulating bike course, but those tackling the longer distance will complete four rather than two laps. Trail paths and long, straight footpaths will feature on the mixed terrain run, which is 2 laps Metric and 3 laps Imperial.
This innovative Triathlon will help you make the leap from standard to middle distance, or middle to long distance triathlon.
