Tallington Lakes Triathlon & Aquathlon 2018
Tallington Lakes Triathlon is back! Sunday 3rd June 2018
Choose from a SuperSprint, Sprint or Olympic distance & enjoy this rural environment in the East Midlands - a little gem hidden away. Don't forget the addition of Tallington Lakes Aquathlon which launched last year - 2 races over the Sprint and Olympic distances with just a swim & run.
Set in South Lincolnshire near the historic town of Stamford- an open water event set in a stunning water sports environment with superb facilities. The venue is superb & the price of your entry includes a post race meal of jacket potato, 1 filling & salad (plus a bottle of water) served at Race Village next to the finish line.
The swim is set in one of the beautiful, clean, spring fed lakes where the temperature in 2015 was 23 degrees! (Wet suits are optional). Taking you out of the venue via the main entrance into the surrounding undulating Lincolnshire countryside the SuperSprint and the Sprint have a 1 lap course. The Olympic follows the Sprint course over 2 laps. The SuperSprint remains fairly flat, whilst the Sprint and the Olympic have a little more elevation, yet still takes in some beautiful scenery. Staying within the private park, the run follows the new access road running to the south of the complex with lakeside views as per 2017 event. The residents come out to cheer you on making it a friendly atmosphere & gives you the encouragement you need for the final leg.
