West Suffolk Triathlon
24 Sep 17
The West Suffolk Triathlon is a well-established annual sprint triathlon race hosted by the West Suffolk Wheelers at the Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre in Stowmarket. The race is open to everyone: with the pool-based swim and good facilities available it is an ideal event for beginners; whilst the fast course makes it the perfect end-of-season event for experienced triathletes. The West Suffolk Triathlon will be the final race of the 2017 Eastern Triathlon League.
The event comprises of a 300m pool swim, 18km bike ride and 5km run. Swimmers undertake the 300m swim, starting at half-minute intervals, swimming up and down each lane, and then moving under the lane ropes into the next lane. Swimmers are seeded according to their stated swim time so it is important to be as accurate as you can with this detail. It will be possible to amend this time nearer the event. The bike section is an undulating country route, and the run section is mostly off road and virtually flat. The bike course can be found here and the run course can be found here. There is also a video of the bike course on Youtube.
All finishers will receive a finishing medal. Prizes will be awarded for 1,2,3 overall male and female, first place age group male and female, and best male and female novice.
Changing & toilet facilities are available at the Sports Centre. There is plenty of parking at the Sports Centre and an overflow car park at the school next door. The Sports Centre has a cafe on site which will be open throughout the event from 0715. A menu will be posted on our website before the event.
