Ilkley Triathlon

17 Sep 2017

 Race Introduction

The 25th Ilkley Triathlon will take place on Sunday 17th September 2017, based at Ilkley Lido. The course will be the same as in previous years, with a 500m swim in the indoor pool, followed by three bike laps and one run lap around a 3 mile circuit comprising Denton Road, Carter's Lane, Curly Hill and Middleton Avenue. We use open public roads for the bike laps so please be aware of other road users.

This event is suitable for novices and more experienced triathletes alike, and has traditionally had a very large local entry. The event is limited to a maximum of 360 entries, plus 30 relay teams. Minimum age is 15 (as at 31 December 2017) for individual entries. For teams, the minimum age for cyclists is 15, but for swimmers and runners the minimum age is 14.

This is a very popular event, last year it sold out within 14 hours. Once the event is full, you can still enter and will automatically be put on the waiting list.  No money will be taken until a place becomes available, at which point the organisers will send you an invitation to confirm you still wish to enter. Please make sure you read your emails regularly if you are on the waiting list as the invitation will expire after 72 hours it will be assumed that you no long wish to take part.

Entry fees are £39 for individual seniors, £20 for individual juniors (£36 or £17 respectively if BTF member) and £39 for Teams. Juniors are defined as under 20 years on 31st December 2017.

The event will be chip timed and start at 9.00am, with the last competitors starting around 4pm. Registration and bike racking will be on the day, at least 45 minutes before competitors' start times.


Please note that only competitors will be allowed into the transition area.

Start times will be posted on the Leeds & Bradford Triathlon Club website approximately two weeks before the event and will not be changed once posted. Event details, such as route maps, and competitor lists will also be posted on the website and at event registration.


There will be a £20 refund for withdrawals notified to the organiser before 20th August, but no refunds thereafter.

Prize categories will be displayed at Registration and prizes will be presented and must be collected on the day.
