The classic 1/2 Ironman distance or 70.3 whatever you want to call it. But over a fantastic and possibly the most challenging course in the country.

1.2 mile (1.9K) swim in Ullswater - England's most beautiful lake
56 miles (90k)cycle - including the Kirkstone Pass
12.5 miles (20k)run - mix of track, fell and road


The inaugural ADIL triathlon in 2009 was a tremendous success attracting entries from 480 athletes. Feedback was very good, the venue and course worked fantastically well. The race has grown and there are no planned changes for the 2014 race.

The venue is superb with camping/caravans and all facilities on site at Park Foot.

As you might expect from a TriHard event the route will present quite a challenge. The swim will be in refreshing crystal clear Ullswater, Helvellyn competitors will know what I mean. The bike will be one loop taking in the Kirkstone Pass (from Patterdale) and Shap Fell. The run is a mix of road, track and fell along the base of Barton Fell taking in Howtown, Fusedale and Martindale.

There is also be a relay race comprising a separate swimmer, cyclist and runner.


We are always looking for marshals to help with races. If you help us with this or any of the other TriHard races we will look after you with a packed lunch on race day and we will also give you a free entry into any of our races for either yourself or a friend to use. If you would like to help us out then please contact us using the contact us link at the side of this page.


If you look very closely you can just see the line of swimmer across the lake.
