triathlon and duathlon

Swim (Triathlon only): Downstream open water swim in the River Severn. A wetsuit is recommended for the swim - and is compulsory if the water temperature is 14°C or less (past temperatures have ranged from 14-22°C). First wave will be about 12:30pm. Sprint: 750m; Standard: 1,500m.

The river water is tested in line with BTF guidance. If the river is not safe to swim in, the race will become a duathlon (i.e. run/bike/run). There will always be a risk of illness when swimming in open water. To minimise the risk competitors should wash hands before eating or drinking anything (including after handling your wetsuit), aim to swim away from the edges where the flow is greater and water quality better, ensure any wounds are covered with a waterproof dressing and try to avoid drinking any river water.

Bike: The bike route follows wide open roads out in the countryside with a total 57m climbing in 1 lap. The standard distance is 2 laps. Here is a link to a Garmin map of the route. Sprint tri & duathlon: 21.5km; Standard: 40km.

Run: A largely flat 5km circuit, approximately 2km on tarmac, 2km on a private gravel farm track, 1km on a grass footpath.
The standard distance is 2 laps.
Sprint & 2nd run for duathlon: 5km; Standard: 10km.
The first run stage of the duathlon will be 2.5km of the same course.

Here is the triathlon course map and the duathlon course map.

Relay: Not sure about doing a whole triathlon? Enter a team of 3 people into either the sprint or the standard distance triathlon. One person completes the swim, the second cycles and then the third does the run.

  • Upton Tri+ reserve the right to alter any of the course if circumstances require them to do so. If Stage 2 or 3 Covid restrictions are in place it will be a time trial (i.e. one at a time) start not wave start & additional social distancing measures will need to be in place to ensure everyone's safety.
