Organiser's Description

With the UK ULTIMATE WEEKEND you can take part in one, two, or all three disciplines, so as always, there is something for everyone and the opportunity to take home one, two, or three of our jigsaw medals!

Just want to take on the swim, then you're on the right page.

FRIDAY afternoon is the starting event with the UK ULTIMATE SWIM. Choose from either a 2.4 mile, 1.2 mile, or 0.6 mile swim challenge in The Mere.

This is a weekend-long swim, cycle, and run challenge for all abilities from novice to first timer, as well as being a race for the more serious athlete and age group triathlete with prizes and trophies on offer for completing all three disciplines.

Every competitor will receive an individual medal for each of the swim, cycle, run disciplines and those taking on the full ULTIMATE WEEKEND CHALLENGE will receive a commemorative T-shirt.
