Lakesman Triathlon

Lakesman Triathlon


Lakesman Triathlon returns on the 17th June 2018 and will feature the award winning full distance event, and also the brand new Lakesman Half!

The long distance race received 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 compete again and recommend the event to others. The 2016 event was also ranked as one of the UK's best triathlon events.

The long distance Lakesman features the classic 2.4mile swim, a 112 mile cycle and full 26.2 mile 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 half distance iconic swim will take place in Derwentwater followed by a stunning bike ride taking in much of the Lakesman full route, then a flat half marathon with some of the best support in the country. Both races will have all the same features – races built with the athlete at the centre of all we do, with a strict limit of 400 athletes per race to make sure that very special Lakesman experience is shared by everyone.

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. Both bike route make their 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 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 hope you find all the information you need on our site and we look forward to seeing you in 2018!
