The Phoenix Sprint Triathlon 2018

03 Jun 2018

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

Organiser's Description

Official Statement

Ragley Open Water Swimming 2018


It is with great regret that we have had to postpone the start of the Open Water Swimming Season at Ragley Hall.


As it stands the water temperature has risen to acceptable tolerances, however, two separate water tests have revealed unusually high concentrations of blue green algae in the water.


We are working in partnership with the land owners to find a workable solution so that we can return to normal at the earliest possible opportunity.


Unfortunately, due to the proximity of the RLSS UK Open Water Festival/Phoenix Triathlon, we have made a difficult decision to cancel these events.


We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused, but felt on balance that an early announcement will allow competitors to make alternative arrangements.


Organisers for the Open Water Festival and the Phoenix Triathlon will be making contact with all registered competitors to update on the next steps.


SPRINT DISTANCE – 750m open water swim - 23km bike - 5km run.  On 3rd June 2018

The Phoenix Sprint Triathlon is ideal for those looking for their first sprint OW triathlon.

Ragley Hall is situated near Alcester, B49 5NJ just off the A46. Ragley Hall is an established open water venue and Evesham Vale Triathletes are very pleased to be organising their fourth sprint distance triathlon in such a great location. The swim is one 750m lap of the lake.

The bike is a 23k undulating ride on a mix of A and B roads.

The 5km run is in the scenic parkland of Ragley Hall on grass and some tarmac.

The race is run under BTF rules, a copy of which will be available at registration. Maps of the course will be available on the web page. This is a non-drafting race.

Prizes will be also awarded for age categories (M and F) 15-16 (youth), 17-19, 20-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+, based on age at 31st December 2018. There will also be spot prizes.  Goody bag, including bespoke medal and long sleeve t-shirt to all competitors. Chip timing.

First wave will start at 8am.  More detailed information regarding wave times will be e-mailed to competitors nearer race day.
