Grafman Middle Distance Triathlon
Join us for the Grafman Middle Distance Triathlon this June, at Grafham Water. This beautiful and iconic lake is host to many sporting activities and boasts a scenic run route past the iconic Valve Tower.
Grafman was voted National Event of The year 2014 and was selected for the Triathlon England Middle Distance Championships 2015 and British Championships 2016.
This event is open to everyone, regardless of ability and there are plenty of activities at the venue to keep the whole family entertained while you race.
This is a non-draft legal race.
The triathlon will begin at 07:00am. This will be a time trial format start, depending on covid restrictions. Swimmers will start one at a time, in a rolling start format, with the fastest predicted swim times being set off first. The results will be based entirely on chip-timing, not gun time.
Many people are understandably nervous regarding entering events again and we want to assure you that we take every measure we can to organise a safe, socially distanced event. To see this in action watch our video Covid-19 Safety at ActiveTrainingWorld Running and Triathlon Events
We want you to book with confidence so, if this event can no longer go ahead, and an alternative date isn’t found, you will be offered a virtual run or a refund of your entry fee. (Booking fees are non-refundable)
