Southwell Leisure Centre: Nottingham Road, Nottingham, United Kingdom
Racing to the backdrop of the famous Southwell Minster, the setting for this event is fantastic. The event consists of a 400 metre swim in the Southwell Leisure Centre's 25 metre pool followed by a 17.6km cycle and finishing with a two-lap 5km run.
The Southwell Sprint Triathlon is well supported by the local community, businesses and a team of 50+ volunteers. It's an ideal first triathlon, and always has a very high percentage of first-timers, usually at least a third of our 650 entrants are novices.
In its 20th year, the Southwell Sprint Triathlon is the first event in the Midlands Sprint Triathlon Series. The series has developed massively since its introduction in 2007 with over 8,500 athletes taking part in at least 1 series event, so why not join them! To be part of the Series, you need to complete all three events to be eligible for series prizes.
The Southwell Tri is novice friendly, but we certainly wouldn't say it's easy. Within metres of starting both the bike and run sections, you are greeted by inclines. They are not mountains, but we have named the first part of the run 'The Southwell Slope'
You will need to collect your Race pack in registration on the day of the event, we recommend that you allow at least 1hr to register and get your kit set-up in transition so you don't have to rush before your start time.
You will need to bring a form of photo ID to enable you to register and hence race.
