The Peninsula Triathlon is brought to you by Ipswich Basketball Club and is based in the idyllic setting of the Royal Hospital School, Holbrook, Suffolk. The pool swim and traffic free run course makes the Peninsula Triathlon ideal for novices. The events cycle course takes in some of the most stunning countryside in Suffolk and is prodominately on quiet country roads.

Boasting Chip Timing and very experienced organisers the event is likely to fill up fast, we will keep a short waiting list for those who may have to withdraw.


Start times will be seeded with the slower swimmers starting first. Swim start times will be spaced 30 seconds apart so the need for overtaking should be minimal. You will swim up the left hand side of the lane and then back down the right hand side of the same lane. At the end of each 2 lengths, you will move under the ropes into the next lane and continue until you have swum in all 6 lanes. Start times will not be published until race day.


A single lap road course, totalling 20 miles. The cycle course is mainly on rural roads, which heads from the Royal Hospital School towards Shotley, then turns towards Chelmondiston, Woolverstone, Freston, Alton Water, Stutton and Holbrook. The route is predominately on quiet country roads and will be well signed and marshalled.


A double lap course around The Royal Hospital School which is prodominately on footpath and small section on grass, totalling 5K
