Stratford Triathlon 2020
A fun but challenging event in the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon. The pool swim at Stratford Leisure Centre is followed by a flat countryside cycle course heading out towards Warwick. The challenge finishes with a picturesque run alongside the River Avon. Aimed at all abilities and all levels of fitness, from complete novice to club and pro triathlete, as well as charity and fun competitors. Sprint, super sprint, fun and relay options.
Also, we want to encourage more women to have a go so UK Triathlon has dedicated a section of this event solely to the Pink Wave, a women only start in the pool, and will donate £10 from every Pink Wave entry to Cancer Research UK. Any age, any ability, just get together for the camaraderie and the challenge, whilst raising vital funds for research into beating cancer.
NOTE - This is the rescheduled event from 3rd May 2020. The race organiser will be in touch with you in due course if you have made a booking for this event for the earlier date.
