Louth Triathlon 2015
Louth Triathlon is back for a second year on Sunday 6th September. It is now part of the Lincolnshire Triathlon Series with Skegness Triathlon on 10th May 2015.
ENTRIES ARE NOW CLOSED . WAVE TIMES ARE NOW ON THE WEBSITE AND WE HAVE PLACED THE 2014 FINAL RESULTS ONLNE SO YOU CAN SEE LAST YEARS TIMES.
A very popular event last year for 1st timers as well as the more experienced triathlete! Our venue is the Meridian Leisure Centre (MLC) in Louth, a clean and modern 25m heated pool. We have moved transition into the school fields to the north of MLC creating a safer transition area and a dedicated route out onto the bike element. The bike section is still as demanding as the course is unchanged and ventures out into northern Lincolnshire countryside along quiet country roads. Although relatively flat the route has been described as a great bike route as 'it doesn't allow you to stay in the saddle'.
The run course has been altered to take in The Railway Walk that runs alongside the MLC. It's still 5k in length but with more trees to look at this year. The path will be closed to the general public on race day so you can get your game face on and go for the PB or a course record.
Louth Triathlon Club are based at the Meridian Leisure Centre and will be on hand during the race to talk triathlon as well as advise on membership to the Triathlon Club.
