Louth Triathlon: Meridian Leisure Centre, Louth, United Kingdom
The Louth Triathlon is back for it's 5th year on Sunday 2nd September. Part of the Lincolnshire Triathlon Series with Grantham Triathlon on 7th April & Skegness Triathlon on Sunday 13th May.
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. Moving through transition you have a short run down the hill to the bike mount line. Transition is based in the neighbouring school fields to the north of MLC, creating a dedicated route out onto the bike element. The bike section is still a technical course and gives you the chance to ride along some quiet Lincolnshire 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 takes you around some of the lanes in Louth and up an old disused train line along Railway Walk. The walk is very picturesque and a little hidden gem in Louth, and possibly the best part of the race. The waterstation is positioned so you can get liquid refreshment twice along the 2 lap course. Railway Walk will be closed to the general public on race day, so you can enjoy the tree lined path without interruption.
Louth Aquathlon was added to the event last year. So if you fancy a shorter race over the swim and run elements you can enter this race. Held on the same day you will swim in the pool then run into transition to grab your shoes & go straight onto the run. We think this is a great way to try a multi-sport race. Places are limited to 50 entries on this race.
To enter under BTF affiliation you must have a valid BTF membership number at time of booking.
ON THE DAY ENTRY WILL BE PERMITTED IF PLACES DO NOT SELL OUT - CASH ON THE DAY
The triathlon team consists of 2 or 3 members. If your team has 2 members, the first member will conduct the swim and the run and the 2nd member will conduct the bike. If your team has 3 members, 1 member conducts EITHER the swim, the bike or the run. The team can consist of British Triathlon Federation members and non-members. Any non-members must pay their £5.00 Day Licence fee at registration on the day of the event. For the Aquathlon the team will consist of 2 members, 1 on the swim and 1 on the run.
You will only be able to ENTER the Lincolnshire Triathlon Series up to the date when Skegness Triathlon online entries close - OR if you competed at Skegness you need to book onto Louth Triathlon & you will be automatically entered into the series.
The Lincolnshire Triathlon Series comprises of 2 races in 2017, Skegness Triathlon on Sunday 13th May and Louth Triathlon on Sunday 2nd September.
