Organiser's Description

The Marlow Classic is a fairly flat, scenic course in the Thames Valley, taking in the views of Marlow and the surrounding areas. The event is open to all abilities and first time triathletes are encouraged to take part.

This is the 12th year for this multi sport event with a swim in the River Thames. The swim course is designed to make even the weakest swimmer get a fast time. The bike course is undulating, but it is fast. The run is on tarmac and grass footpaths, which meander towards Marlow and back to the finish at Higginson Park.
