Building on the success of our first triathlon in 2021, we are delighted to announce the date of this year’s Berkeley Sprint Triathlon.  As a development we are offering a Super Sprint option as well as Relay, alongside the Sprint race.

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 on a fast and flat course.

The Sprint race will take part in a pool-based 400m swim in the attractive school 18m open-air lido.  This will be followed by a 22km bike ride on mostly country lanes through the attractive rolling countryside around Berkeley, featuring two laps of the UC184 time trial circuit.  (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).

If you choose to enter the Super Sprint event, you will tackle a 200m swim in the lido, followed by one lap of the UC184 circuit (12Km) and then an out-and-back 2.5Km through Berkeley.

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.
