Welcome to the home of
Lake District Endurance Events
Entry for the 2020 Lakesman is now available
Back for 2020 we plan to build on the outstanding success of the Lakesman Triathlon and bring you an event which is as much of an experience to the senses as it is a challenge to your stamina.
The previous four years have received fantastic feedback from competitors, spectators and locals alike. Our independent research found that 100% of spectators would come back to watch the event again, and a fantastic 97% of athletes would compete again and recommend the event to others. The event is also ranked as one of the UK’s best triathlon events.

The Lakesman – 21st June 2020
Designed to appeal to both the experienced or novice endurance athlete the race is based in Keswick, with a superb transition area at The Theatre by the Lake. The swim takes place in the crystal clear waters of Derwentwater, generally regarded on the Lake Districts most scenic lakes. Both bike route make their way to the west coast of Cumbria where competitors get to experience a side of the lakes often unvisited by tourists, with mountains on one side and the sea on the other. During the run stage athletes will have the opportunity running through superb countryside with views to the likes of Skiddaw as well as a spectator friendly section through Keswick town centre. We hope you find all the information you need on our site and we look forward to seeing you in 2020.
We have partnered with performance and exercise specialists Bespoked Physiotherapy to offer Lakesman athletes a discount on a really useful training guide. Start Line is a booklet specifically targeted at the demands of the middle and long distance Lakesman races and is packed full of helpful information to help you manage your body and reduce your chances of experiencing injury. The latest research is used to give practical advice on areas such as course management, training plans, strength and conditioning, recovery, illness and acute injury management. There is something in here for athletes of all levels and a small investment will hopefully have significant rewards in helping you make the start line of the event!
It is exciting to be able to offer this unique athlete focussed product in association with what we believe is a uniquely athlete focussed event, and we are also looking forward to providing other services for athletes over the race weekend.
We are also delighted to offer another exclusive product for Lakesman athletes, where for a one off fee you have unlimited access via telephone, email, text etc to physiotherapy advice right through to race day. This service can help with any acute injuries by providing advice, reassurance and appropriate exercises, and it can also be useful in providing advice on when it is necessary to seek a face to face assessment or medical investigations etc.
