Event Summary

Active Sports Events welcomes you to an exciting new Sprint Triathlon Series at Lake 32 and Cotswold Country Park and Beach. 


The venue is used all year round for swimming and water sports and has been the home of triathlons in the Cotswolds for over 20 years. 

 

There will be two events held in 2022, the first on Sunday 22nd May and the second on Sunday 4th September. The Active Sports Events Sprint Triathlon series includes a stunning 750m (one lap) swim, a fast and flat bike and two lap run course around the lakes. The course is great for beginners and fast racing. 

We also have a super sprint which provides an opportunity to novices that want to dip their toe into the world of triathlon with a shorter one loop swim (400m), the same 20km bike ride and then a one lap 2.5km run. 

 

We have included a combo entry so you can take part in both events for as little as £95.00!​​ Places will be strictly limited, so grab an entry quickly before they are gone!
