Dunmow Triathlon 2017

24 Sep 2017

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description


300m swim, 23k bike, 5k run.


The Dunmow Triathlon is based at a very modern and well equipped leisure centre in Great Dunmow, Essex. The race starts in the 25m indoor pool, with a 300m over/ under swim. There is a spacious transition area within the centre grounds, which forms the focus of the race. The cycle course is mainly on rural roads, a single lap of 23km, passing through Thaxted, Tilty, Little Easton and back to Great Dunmow. This is followed by a one lap run over a mixture of paths and grassland. The pool swim and limited traffic run course makes it an ideal race for novices and young competitors, minimum age 17yrs on race day. This will be a chip timed event for accurate and quick results. 

Relay entries are accepted and welcomed - please register utilising the relay option


Entry Limit: 400 competitors


Distances: - 8.00am Start (7.30am briefing)


SWIM- 300 metre pool swim at at the leisure centre. You will start at 30 second intervals and be seeded by your estimated swim time - this will hopefully allow you a clear swim without being overtaken/ catching other swimmers if you are honest with your estimated 300m swim time! At the end of the first 50m (2 lengths) you duck under the lane rope and continue your swim - finishing at the far end of the pool after completing 300m with no need to count your lengths .... simple! After the swim start times are published they won't be able to be changed.


CYCLE- A single lap road course, totalling 23km. This is a fairly testing and undulating course, along mainly rural roads.


RUN- A one lap, multi terrain run on paths, quiet country lanes and grassland surrounding the leisure centre. This has a hill at the start but flattens out for the last 2km


The transition area will be situated in the grounds of the leisure centre with shower and changing facilities available at the leisure centre itself. The first swimmers will start at 8.00am.
