The Blackwater Charity triathlon is based at the Blackwater Leisure Centre, Maldon Essex. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the chosen charity.  

The race is run in three formats Novice, Sprint and a Sprint Relay for teams of 3. The race starts in the 25m indoor pool with a controlled start limiting the number of swimmers in each lane. There is a spacious transition area within the centre grounds, which form the focus of the race. The cycle course is four laps
(2 for novice) on an out and back course to the South of Maldon This is followed by a two lap traffic (or 1 for novice) free run through the Maldon Promenade Park mainly on paved paths but with a short off road section on grass. The pool swim and traffic free run course makes it an ideal race for novices.

This is a well-established event with a high demand for places so we are expecting the entry list to fill up quickly. On reaching the entry limit we will keep a waiting list to replace those who have to withdraw. (Start Time will be 7.30am)

SWIM 400 metre (200 metre for Novice) pool swim at the clean and modern leisure centre pool. Start position is based on your declared swim time, with the slowest going first so you will be swimming with people of a similar speed. NOVICES PLEASE ENTER YOUR 200m SWIM TIME.

CYCLE A four lap road course, totalling 24km (two laps 12km for Novice distance). This is a largely flat course with one gradual climb on each lap, along mainly rural roads. The route will be fully marked and marshalled. 

RUN  A two lap partly off road route on mainly paved surfaces with a small section on grass. (Single lap for Novice). Again, the route will be fully marked and marshalled with a water station on each lap.

The transition area will be situated to the rear of the leisure centre; shower and changing facilities will be available at the leisure centre itself.
