The Cotswold Super Sprint takes place at The Cotswold Country Park and Beach, GL7 6DF, part of Britain’s largest water park, the Cotswold Water Park. The Waterland lake is usually used for swimming, canoeing, wind surfing and fishing. It is set in a beautifully landscaped area which has a children’s beach and play areas, a beachfront café, volleyball courts and BBQ/picnic areas; a brilliant venue to bring all the family.

The Park is near Cirencester – three miles from the A419 (between Swindon and Cirencester) and within easy reach of the M4 and M5 motorway. A map of the area is available here.

Entry fee to events include FREE Parking on Saturday for registration and Offsite Parking on Race Day at £3.00 (short walk to venue)

A one-lap lake swim in clear water (wetsuits must be used) is followed by a fairly flat, one lap ride on quiet country roads before departing for a two lap, traffic free run on paths around the lake (The Novice/Youth event is one lap). The short event and the venue are ideal for first timers or those moving from pool swim events to open water and the Super Sprint provides a great early fitness test or stepping-stone to Sprint and Standard distance.
