The Sudbury Triathlon (Adult and Junior)

14 Jun 2020

Organiser's Description

 

On Sunday 14th June 2020 TRISudbury will be hosting an Adult and Junior Triathlon.

 

Whether you are new to triathlon, or keen to lock down a sprint triathlon PB, this is the 
 
triathlon for you.  With events for both juniors and adults, the Sudbury Triathlon is fast 
 
developing a reputation as one of the most competitive yet inclusive and family-friendly 
 
events in the region.  We are excited about our plans to grow the event in this, its fifth year.
 
We are very proud of the fact that the Sudbury Triathlon was recognised as a British 
 
Triathlon East Region Adult League event in 2019, attracting competitors from right across 
 
East Anglia and beyond.  While many in the field were hotly contesting league points, the 
 
safe and secure environment in which the events are run also make it an ideal first time 
 
triathlon for those wishing to dip their toe in the water, or a great social event for teams 
 
wishing to compete as a relay team. 
 
 
Adult Sprint Triathlon  
 
400m Swim - 23km Bike - 5km Run
 
The 400m swim leg takes part in the open-air pool at the Great Cornard Sports Centre and 
 
is followed by an undulating 23km bike route through the beautiful Suffolk countryside.  
 
Competitors then partake in a predominately flat, 5km run staged entirely off-road though 
 
the stunning scenery of Great Cornard Country Park, before finishing in front of cheering 
 
crowds on the school fields. 
 

The bike route is available here (subject to change): Bike Route (Strava) / Bike Route (youtube)

The run route is available here (subject to change): Run Route
