Ultimate Aquathlon 2020
Our fun and friendly events are open to everyone. The races offer a supportive environment, with cheering crowds and a fun and relaxed atmosphere, meaning everyone enjoys their day, competitors, friends and family alike. There are two distances to choose from 1.2 mile lake swim - 6.5 mile lakeside run or 0.6 mile lake swim - 3.25 mile lakeside run. One or two complete laps of Alderford's spring fed lake is the first challenge, followed by a two or four lap picturesque lakeside run.
This is part of the Ultimate weekend, including the Utlitmate Tri, the 1/2 Ultimate and the 1/4 Ultimate.
