The Wasdale Half Iron Distance Triathlon

Date & Location

Wasdale Head, Cumbria

Organiser’s Description

Described as the deepest, steepest and the highest ' this Half Ironman challenge is surely one of the toughest in the country. The swim is in Wastwater, the Lake District's deepest, the bike leg has 7,217ft of climb, the run 4,583ft, but it's not so much the total ascent that will hurt, it's the severity that will cause the damage!
