ATW Grafham Triathlon

ATW Grafham Standard Distance Triathlon

ATW INVITE YOU TO GRAFHAM WATER, ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S MOST LOVED TRIATHLON VENUES, ON SATURDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER 2022

Whether you are an experienced athlete looking for a fast race, or a novice competitor looking for a safe and friendly venue for your first open water multisport event, Grafham Water is ideal. We guarantee you’ll enjoy this fantastic venue that has been used for award-winning triathlons, national championships and GB qualifier races.

Triathlon – swim 1500m, cycle 36km, run 10km

The swim takes place in the beautiful clean waters of the Grafham Water reservoir, with a two laps of a 750m loop.
The bike is a flat out and back bike course that takes you through some of the most scenic villages in the area.
The run is two laps of a 5k route that uses the natural footpaths of Grafham water. The route heads out across the iconic dam wall before looping past the finish area where you’ll receive great support each lap.

If you don’t fancy taking on all three disciplines yourself, why not team up with up to two others and enter as a relay team taking on a discipline each?
Don’t fancy the run? Why not tackle an Aquabike that finishes after the bike, at the entrance to transition.
