Looking for something different to ironman?

This is it. Continuous Sw1m, Bike, Run format on both Sat & Sun. Piggybacking off two of the largest triathlons in the world, and with loads of atmos and buzz from all that entails of a big event.

In the previous 4 years it's just been 20 odd lucky competitors and an instant sell out. I've been lucky enough to win it once, and come 3rd and 4th.

Well now entry numbers have been expanded, and there's currently a May Day bank holiday weekend bonus of 25% off , ENTER DISCOUNT CODE: MAYDAY18, of unspecified end date so don't dally.

This format really is recommended, tremendous fun, and a whole new amazing endurance Tri experience, with it's own unique set of strategy and techniques to master.

It's fab value at full price of 200 (especially compared to 100 ish for solo sprint entries, which sell out anyway!) so at a discounted 150 it's a snip.

Only two atherleets have ever managed 9 Sprints in the weekend, and that's with the (easier current) rolling format. The tough target for most is 8, which was really tough when you were forced to catch the specific start waves like in the first 3 years.

It's a magic format, has to be experienced.
And at Blenheim, what a venue and course.
It's a tough course (which is good!), and whereas a regular Sprint may take you an hour if your lucky, this would be equiv of ~1h10 at Blenheim.

Point to point sw1m.
Lairy entertaining bike course, quite thrilling in sections tbh, especially when it's full of newbies (who theoretically keep to the left... Exclamation Wink )
An up and down run, with plenty of opportunity to run on the grass if you prefer, like me (better for avoiding harsh impact and consequent sore muscles for the whole 2 days.)

Blenheim: June 2nd & 3rd 2018
