The Lakesman Triathlon
Hello and thank you for visiting the home of The Lakesman Triathlon.
June 2016 saw organisers and partners CN Events, Sport in Action, Allerdale Borough Council and GLL succeedin bringing, for the very first time the opportunity for athletes to race a long distance triathlon in the very heart of the English Lake District. Laying the foundations for a successful 2017 event, the 2016 Lakesman Triathlonreceived fantastic feedback from competitors, spectators and locals alike. Our independent research found that 100% of spectators would come back to watch the event again, and a fantastic 97% of athletes would competeagain and recommend the event to others.
In addition to this, the event also brought £1.4million into the localarea. The Lakesman features the class ic 2.4mile swim, a 112 mile cycle and full 26.2mile marathon run. Designed to appeal to both the experienced or novice endurance athlete, the all road course avoids mountai. 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 takes place in the crystal clear waters of Derwentwater, generally regarded on the Lake Districts most scenic lakes. The bike route makes its way to the west coast of Cumbria where competitors get to experience a side of the lakes often unvisited by tourists, with mountains on one side and the sea on the other. During the five 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. The Lakesman team keep our athletes and spectators at the heart of everything we do to ensure a truly memorable and enjoyable triathlon experience. We hope you find all the information you need on our site and we look forward to seeing you in 2017!
