The Grafman Middle Distance Triathlon is a well-established triathlon within the community.
The start, the swim, much of the run and the finish are all conveniently located together, making excellent spectator viewing at Grafham Water Reservoir. The swim takes place in the lake consisting of a two lap course that is easy to navigate; a quick Australian style exit on each lap makes a great spectacle for your family/friends to support you from. The roads around the villages offer great surfaces for fast riding and only the odd short climb to challenge you. The bike course will be fast, but don’t underestimate it – especially if it’s a windy day!
On returning to Grafham Water, you will conquer the multi-lap run course around the edge of the lake comprising of both tarmac and hard compound tracks.
There is plenty of on-site camping as well as excellent local hotels and B&Bs just two to three miles down the road. There are thousands of car parking spaces available; making this is the perfect athlete and spectator experience.
