Upton Tri+

11 Jul 2020

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

Organiser's Description

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we have now decided to cancel this year's Upton Triathlon, Duathlon & Kids' Fun Run. This is a decision that we really did not want to make but it is clear to us that even if triathlons are allowed to take place in July, we unfortunately do not have the capacity nor the resources to put in place all the measures that would be necessary to keep everyone safe.  We hope to see you next year!

Upton Tri+ offers you the choice of:

  • a standard distance tri (1500m swim, 40km cycle, 10km run)

  • a sprint distance tri (750m swim, 21.5km cycle, 5km run)

  • a relay option for those wanting to take the team approach

  • a sprint distance duathlon (2.5km run, 21.5km cycle, 5km run)
  • 100m toddle and 1km fun run for kids (see Upton Kids Fun Run to enter)

  • just coming along to support and joining in the post triathlon party

Everything is conveniently located in Fish Meadow, just over the river bridge from the scenic town of Upton-on-Severn, Worcestershire. Camping/ caravanning and free parking are also available on Fish Meadow.

Swim: downstream open water swim in the River Severn. A wetsuit is recommended for the swim - and is compulsory if the water temperature is 14°C or less (past temperatures have ranged from 14-18°C).

The river water is tested in line with BTF guidance.  If the river is not safe to swim in, the race will become a duathlon (i.e. run/bike/run).  There will always be a risk of illness when swimming in open water. To minimise the risk competitors should try to avoid drinking any river water. Some people say drinking coke after a race helps prevent illness.

Bike: the bike route follows wide open roads out in the countryside with a total 57m climbing in 1 lap. The standard distance is 2 laps. Here is a link to a Garmin map of the route.

Run: a largely flat 5km circuit; 4km of the route is a combination of a quiet, rural lane, a private gravel farm track and a grass footpath along the river bank. The standard distance is 2 laps.

Click here to download the 2019 course map - run route will be slightly different in 2020 due to gravel extraction on the farm.

Relay: Not sure about doing a whole triathlon? Enter a team of 3 people into either the sprint or the standard distance triathlon. One person completes the swim, the second cycles and then the third does the run.
