Skegness Triathlon is back on Sunday 3rd May - a friendly all-inclusive event for novices through to elite athletes. Part of the Lincolnshire Triathlon Series with Grantham Triathlon on 5th April & Louth Triathlon on Sunday 6th September.

Set from a modern 25m pool, Fresh Fitness at Richmond Holiday Park offers a great venue to start the 2nd race in The Lincs Tri Series. The pool is only a year old and very clean. After the swim, exit the pool onto grass & enter transition to grab your helmet, shoes & bike. The bike journeys along Drummond Road, between the Holiday Park and Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve on a relatively flat and straight 11k/18k course. The route has turning points at either end that will be fully marshalled by our team to guide you along the course and shout encouragement at you. The run element is a trail run from Richmond Holiday Park and along a private road to the Skegness Eco Coastal Centre. Part of the course will be around the beautiful Eco Centre and it's wooded areas.

Skegness Triathlon Club are based at the award winning Richmond Holiday Park and will be on hand to talk triathlon as well as advise on membership to the Triathlon Club.

For those wishing to stay at the very impressive Richmond Holiday Park, we have agreed that any participants, friends and family can get 30% off the cost of your accommodation (please note camping isn't allowed at the park). There is also pitches for those who wish to bring their own caravan /motorhome (if you mention the triathlon you can book for 2 nights only (usually min 3). To book please call Richmond Holiday Park direct on 01754 762097. This is an ideal opportunity if you are competing in the event and wish to make a weekend with family or friends in Skegness.

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.
