This sprint distance triathlon is ideal for 1st timers as well as the more experienced triathlete. The swim is held in an indoor swimming pool in a leisure centre and the safe, secure transition area is in the neighbouring school fields. The bike course is relatively flat, although watch out for a few inclines which will force you out of 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.
