Don't just tri...
LAKELAND TRIATHLON is now known as BASS TRI
Saturday August 16th 2014
1500m SWIM - 40Km BIKE - 10Km RUN
Great News - The Bass Triathlon is definitely on in 2014. We have agreed a policy with The National Park and the South Cumbria Rivers Trust to help tackle the spread of water borne non-native species. What it will mean is that if you are not prepared to arrive with clean and dry wetsuit, goggle etc and also to wash then off before leaving you won't be able enter.
The fourth running of this Lakeland event. A collaboration between Tri Lakeland Triathlon Club and TriHard Events, it will be over the Standard or Olympic Distance. The course is far more conventional than many of the other Lakeland races. The cycle and run are both on road and are described as no more than undulating.
The race is based at the beautifully located Bassenthwaite Sailing Club which has fantastic facilities on site. Only 8 miles from Keswick just off the A66. The start time is a very user friendly Saturday 1pm, plenty of accommodation and camping nearby so no need to dash home for work the next morning.
The Race HQ and transition area will be in the grounds of the Sailing Centre. The swim will be a one lap swim in the lake from the slipway used by the boats. The bike route and run routes will be on the undulating roads around Bassenthwaite lake. A slight change from TriHard's usual Lakeland based Triathlons this will be more a traditional standard distance race.
There will be a main open race together with a relay category (one swimmer, one cyclist, one runner). The race will be electronically timed.
The race routes can be found on the links to the right.
