Hertfordshire Summer Triathlon
This year only the sprint distance race is available. A swim in one of the two lakes at the stunning Stanborough Park, Welwyn Garden City, is followed by road bike and run courses which are fast, but both contain one testing hill. The bike will not be traffic free but the run will be traffic free.
The Hertfordshire Summer Triathlon will be the 2019 Triathlon England National Sprint Distance Triathlon Championships. It will also be the ETU Sprint Distance Triathlon European Championships Qualifier.
750m swim, 20 km bike, 5 km run
Finishers medal for all!
Trophies for overall Male 1st, 2nd & 3rd place.
Trophies for overall Female 1st, 2nd & 3rd place.
The swim will take place in Stanborough Lake with a deep-water start. The route is a 750m clock-wise loop, marked with large ATW branded swim buoys.
The bike route is one anti-clockwise loop. There is one mandatory foot-down point as you exit Stanborough Lakes. At this point, you must bring your bike to a complete stop before continuing. Faliure to do so will result in disqualification from the race.
The 2.5km run course is on hard, compacted ground with short cut grass, so despite being an off-road run, is incredibly fun to race on and can make for some fast times! There is one short climb towards the end of each lap.
