A very popular event 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 moved transition into the school fields to the north of MLC last year, 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 takes in The Railway Walk that runs alongside the MLC. The path will be closed to the general public on race day so you can enjoy the tree lined path & run without interruption.
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.
