A mass start beginning slightly further South down the lake athletes will follow the full course orange buoys until they reach a double height Yellow buoy after approx 430 meters. At this point half athletes will turn right. A further two double height yellow buoys appear at which point athletes will again turn right and begin to follow the full course orange buoys again until the finish.
The views from the lake are amazing so spare a second during the race to take a look. After the swim there is a short carpeted spectator lined run to transition, which is adjacent to theatre by the lake.
THE HALF BIKE 90KM (56m)
We believe that this is a simply superb route for a 56 mile triathlon bike course.
Athletes will take in several miles of well-known local time trial routes as well as more undulating sections, all on generally excellent road surfaces. Whilst not flat, we have minimised the elevation as far as possible and at 2500ft isn’t majorly arduous
Race HQ and transition
All functions for the race weekend registration will be based at Keswick Rugby Club along with Event HQ, Medical tents, Finish Line and Hospitality area. Transition and racking will be erected in the car park adjacent to Crow Park and the Theatre by the Lake.
Athletes are advised that the exact location of each function will be displayed by way of map closer to the event date.
