With the swim in a modern 25m pool at Fresh Fitness at Richmond Holiday Park, this is a great venue to start the 1st race in The Lincs Tri Series. After completing 16 lengths in the pool, competitors will exit onto grass and enter transition to grab their your helmet, shoes and bike. The bike route follows along Drummond Road and consists of a 2 lap course between the Holiday Park and Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve on a relatively flat and straight 18k course. The route has turning points at either end that will be fully marshalled. The run element is a trail run from Richmond Holiday Park and along a private road to the Skegness Eco Coastal Centre. Part of the course will be around the beautiful Eco Centre and its wooded areas. Skegness Triathlon Club is based at the award winning Richmond Holiday Park and will be on hand to talk triathlon as well as to give advice on membership to the Triathlon Club.
Skegness is a typical British seaside town boasting beautiful sea views for tourists and locals alike. This triathlon takes place in and around a holiday park and competitors are lucky enough to be able to follow private roads and see sights that others may not be able to see.
