Jump into Spring with Kendal Triathlon

Details

Renamed as the Kendal 'Castle' triathlon, this event will take you round Kendal Castle 3 times and as a result of the new bike route is more spectator friendly. This is a great first sprint distance triathlon, we make it our mission to make this a really relaxed, friendly event.

?

You'll start with a 400m swim in the pool and then transition to your bike for 2 laps of a new bike route that heads into the hills above Kendal and comes back through the town centre. This bike route is predominantly left turns and flows with the traffic for less bike vs car conflict! You can give friends and family a wave as you pass through the town!



Finally, a 5km off-road run using the route of the old canal for a short distance then onto woodland trails and the grassy slopes up to the Castle ruins before returning to the centre for tea, cake and medals.
