SBR Louth Tri
September 2, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm
A very popular event & distance (Sprint) for 1st timers as well as the more experienced triathlete! Our venue is the Meridian Leisure Centre (MLC) in Louth, a clean and modern 25m heated pool. Moving through transition you have a short run down the hill to the bike mount line. We moved transition into the neighbouring school fields to the north of MLC during 2015, creating a safer transition area and a dedicated route out onto the bike element. The bike section is still a technical course and gives you the chance to ride along some quiet Lincolnshire country roads. Although relatively flat the route has been described as a great bike route as ‘it doesn’t allow you to stay in the saddle’.
The run takes you around some of the lanes in Louth and up an old disused train line along Railway Walk. The walk is very picturesque and a little hidden gem in Louth, and possibly the best part of the race. The water station is positioned so you can get liquid refreshment twice along the 2 lap course. Railway Walk will be closed to the general public on race day, so you can enjoy the tree lined path without interruption.
Louth Aquathlon was added to the event last year – so if you fancy a shorter race over the swim and run elements you can enter this race. Held on the same day, you will head from the pool straight onto the run, after collecting your trainers in transition. We think this is a great way to try a multi-sport race. Places are limited to 50 entries on this race.
New addition to 2018 – AQUABIKE. No this is not cycling underwater! Take part in another multisport event swimming and cycling. No running required!
