The bike route reverts back to the 2015 course (in reverse) as the new access road planned out of the venue will unfortunately not be completed in time. 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. The residents come out to cheer you on making it a friendly atmosphere & gives you the encouragement you need for the final leg.
Choose from a SuperSprint, Sprint or Olympic distance & enjoy this rural environment in the East Midlands - a little gem hidden away.
The new maps are now ready to download showing routes and elevation.

If you are thinking about making a weekend of it with the family, this is the perfect place. Set in 205 acres of clean spring fed water, you can water ski, wakeboard, tube-ride, jet ski, windsurf, dinghy sail or canoe on clean & calm water. Or you can fish - just choose the right lake! There is a Lakeside bar & restaurant , a 20 metre heated outdoor pool & a shallow splash pool for little ones with a sundeck area for sunloungers where you can watch the water skiers through the glass walls. There is a fab childrens play area suitable for 5-12year olds.
If you want to maximise a weekend why not book a lakeside lodge or use the camping & caravanning facilities in one of the 88 pitches in landscaped surroundings.
The venue have kindly offered a special discounted rate to all athletes & families of only £5 per person per night using their own tent or caravan. The price is for either a tent or a caravan/motorhome pitch, with or without electricity. Obviously they are on a first-come-first-served basis and the electric pitches will go first! You will need to let the bookings desk know at the time of booking that you are part of the triathlon otherwise you will be charged full price. There is no cancellation policy on the campsite so there is no refund if you cancel. Payment has to be made on booking. A refundable deposit of £10 gives you a security card, which gives you full use of the toilet and shower block. Please enquire for lakeside lodge prices & availability.
