Hi all, hope the training is going well. I just wondered has anyone done the South Manchester Triathlon Wilmslow? Any good, it's a sprint distance.

Thanks

Nope

But I have done the Wilmslow Triathlon a couple of times, and its the same event only later in the year.

Swim is a pool so not a lot to say

Bike is pretty flat with just a little spikey climb part way through, the road out of Wilmslow can get busy and cars can't always get past slower riders leading to faster riders getting stuck. Once off the main road its all very fast back roads.

Run isn't exactly inspiring but it's nice enough.

Extra mile have always run decent events, apart from the Manchester Marathon which they regularly balls up. But they have just been bought out ? but did Llandudno tri with them this year which was well run.

The other thing to look out for it the Tunnels under the airport that are currently down to one lane ...that could be problematic!

The bike course is one of my main training loops, I ride the 20 miles to it, do the loop then ride back
