Berkeley Triathlon 18th July 2021

For many of us, 2021 represents a ‘re-boot’ of our athletic ambitions.  To mark this, DRC Tri are proud to announce the launch of a new triathlon in the region.

This is an ideal event for those new to multi-skills competition, as well as more experienced triathletes who want to test themselves against a competitive field.

Athletes will take part in a pool-based 400m swim in the attractive school 20m open-air lido.  This will be followed by a 21km bike ride on mostly country lanes through the beautiful rolling countryside around Berkeley (see link to route below).  The 5km run to finish is on a fast course on quiet roads starting and finishing in Berkeley (see link to route below). The event will benefit from a professional timing system and all competitors will receive their own commemorative medal.

The event will be carefully planned to take account of any Coronavirus restrictions in place at the time with appropriate social distancing and hygiene controls.  If a decision is taken that it is not possible to run the event safely under these conditions, then every effort will be made re-schedule the event.  Unfortunately, no refunds can be offered in these circumstances, but all entrants will be offered a free transfer of their place to the re-scheduled event.

Book early to be sure of a place at this friendly and accessible event with great atmosphere and support. Overnight camping for the night before the event may be available.  Contact drctriteam@gmail.com for details.

As an approved UK Triathlon event, places can be booked on the UK Triathlon entry system, link below:
