Grantham Triathlon is back with a new spring date on Sunday 7th April - a friendly all-inclusive event for novices through to elite athletes.

Make it the 1st EVENT of your 2019 race calendar! Part of the Lincolnshire Triathlon Series with Skegness Triathlon on Sunday 12th May & Louth Triathlon on Sunday 1st September.

Successful & made popular in previous years by another organisation, SBR Events have taken over the running of the event. We've added aquathlon, aquabike & Super Sprint distance into the event to make it inclusive to everyone.

The venue & course remains the same as the past few years. Swim is the Meres Leisure Centre in Grantham, a clean and modern 8 lane 25m heated pool with a 400 seat spectator area. Moving through transition you cross the bike mount line & make your way out of the leisure centre facility onto a mini roundabout & head through the Lincolnshire town & countryside.  The bike section is a 2 lap course with a few undulations to enjoy.

The run takes you around part of the town immediately around the leisure centre on a 2 lap course. The water station is positioned so you can get liquid refreshment half way around the 2 lap course.

For SuperSprint distance only 1 lap of the bike & 1 lap of the run course will be required after 8 lengths of the pool.

We have added aquabike & aquathlon to all our triathlon events - so if you fancy a shorter race over the swim / run or swim / bike elements you can enter this race. Held on the same day, you will go into the usual waves of the triathlon race & head from the pool straight onto the run OR bike before crossing the finish line to grab your medal. We think this is a great way to try a multi-sport race.

  • 1st part of the Lincolnshire Triathlon Series
