For the eleventh year in the South West of England there will be an open water triathlon dedicated to women. It will once again take place at The Cotswold Country Park and Beach, part of Britain’s largest water park; the Cotswold Water Park and venue for the very popular Cotswold Sprint Triathlon. 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.
Cotswold Country Park and Beach, near Cirencester is three miles from the A419 (between Swindon and Cirencester) and easily reached from M4 and M5 motorway. Entry fee to events include free parking on Saturday for registration. Sunday will be £3 per Car for the events (usually £16 per Car). A map of the area is available here.
A one-lap lake swim in clear water 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 Supper Sprint/Novice event is one lap). The event and its venue are ideal for those moving from pool swim events to open water and provide a great stepping-stone to the Standard distance. With the 200m swim Novice Event ideal for the first time female triathlete.
In the Sprint Event there will be prizes for the top finisher in each five-year age group, and first Relay Team. Prizes are also awarded for first three overall and first 40+ in the Super Sprint and Novice Events (minimum age for sprint 17 as at 31.12.19, minimum age for Super and Novice 15 as at 31.12.19).
