The Lakesman Triathlon
Hello and thank you for visiting the home of The Lakesman Triathlon. The event is the culmination of three years hard work by the organisers and partners to bring, for the first time, an opportunity to race a long distance triathlon in the heart of the English Lake District.
The Lakesman will feature the classic 2.4 mile swim,
a 112 mile cycle and full marathon run.
Designed to appeal to both the experienced or novice endurance athlete, the all road course avoids mountain passes and fells to keep elevation to a minimum.
The race is based in Keswick, with a superb transition area at The Theatre by the Lake. The swim will be held in the crystal clear waters of Derwentwater, generally regarded on the Lake Districts most scenic lakes.
During the four lap run stage athletes will have the opportunity running through superb countryside with views to the likes of Skiddaw as well as a spectator friendly section through Keswick town centre.
We are sure we have designed a course and event that will provide a truly memorable triathlon experience for both athletes and spectators. We hope you find all the information you need on our site and we look forward to seeing you in 2016!
