Aquathlon Series

The Triathlon Training Centre are once again putting on a series of 5 Aquathlons, this time in the picturesque county of Berkshire at beautiful Bray Lake.

Aquathlons are a swim and run multi-sport event, with each competitor completing a 750m open water swim followed directly by a 5km run. Under the guidance of our race director,  3x Aquathlon World Champion Richard Stannard, we have created a great course suitable for both novice and experience athletes alike.  Our goal is to create an inclusive race series for all – if you are new to multi-sport or aquathlon racing, join us for our free Intro To Aquathlon presentation on Sunday 13 May at Bray Lake or one of our coaching sessions and let us help you get active!

These swim and run events, held on various Saturday mornings across the season, are an excellent opportunity to monitor your progression throughout the year with each event being held on the identical course allowing for comparisons of times across the series. The Aquathlon Race Series is made up of 5 races – each race has great prizes plus enter multiple races in the series and your best results from your top 3 races go towards the grand final podium and prize giving!

The Aquathlon consists of a 750m open water swim followed by a flat fast 5km run (scroll to map below.)

Event Dates: Saturday 26 May 2018, 23 June 2018, 14 July 2018, 18 August 2018 and 8 September 2018.

Cost:  £20 per race or £85 for the series
