- Event description:
The event takes place from Oundle Swimming Pool. It is the first of the Club Championship races.
Non-Members are welcome to come along and can do 2-races without joining the club. Our BTF Insurance requires competitor's to join the club after two races. Benefits of joining, however, include training in Oundle's fantastic 50-yard pool.
Swim - 900 yards. 18 lengths of the pool.
bike - 20 miles. 2-circuit's around Glapthorn, Upper Benefield, Lower Benefield and Oundle. A couple of nasty climbs, but 1-mile of twisty decent around the Benefield's and a 40mph stretch just before the Golf Course!
run - 5 miles. Out to The George, with a clockwise circuit around Glapthorn Crossroads and Cotterstock Crossroads.
Arrive early to Register, set-up your Transition and listen to the Race Brief.
The event will be followed by a general swim in the River Nene, from Oundle Boat House (opposite Gorilla Cycles) at 12:00 noon.
The evening swim will still be on at Oundle Pool at 7:00pm.
