Stradbroke Swim & Fitness Centre, Suffolk
Stradbroke triathlon is the perfect introduction for those new to the sport as well as for more experienced competitors looking for an early season race.
The triathlons include a short pool swim, rural cycle and an off road run to finish.
As there's a triathlon on Saturday evening and another on Sunday morning there's even the option to participate twice over one weekend. For 2020 we have even added in a relay option!
This event is suitable for this 15+ as of 31st December in the year of the race.
There's also a junior aquathlon (swim-run) events over varying distances for children aged 8-14 on the Sunday afternoon, so this really is a great event for all the family!

During the swim you will start by swimming up one side of the first lane and down the other before dipping under the lane rope. You will continue this process until you reach the far side of the pool and exit the water to move into transition. Click here for a map of the swim route and exit to transition.
The bike leg will take you out on a single 17km loop around the gently rolling Suffolk lanes. The roads are very quiet and scenic. There will be route signs and marshals in place to guide you as you tick off the kilometres.Clock here for the bike route map.
The run is a flat 3km's and comprises 2 laps using the playing fields adjacent to Stradbroke Swim & Fitness Centre and the headland of surrounding arable fields (no access to the latter prior to race day). Signage and marshals will be in place to guide you.

SARS volunteers provide a vital service in assisting the East of England Ambulance Service with medical emergencies whether that be at the roadside or in the home.
They do not receive any central funding and are reliant on donations to support their work.
Keep an eye out for competitors and volunteers representing SARS during the triathlon weekend.
