HSV Sprint Triathlon
JOIN US FOR THE HATFIELD SPORTS VILLAGE TRIATHLON ON SUNDAY 16TH MAY 2021.
The race starts and finishes at the Hertfordshire Sports Village in Hatfield. The course is fast, flat and has great PB potential.
The race is comprised of a 400m pool swim in the 8 lane, 25m pool, followed by a 1 lap 20km bike on a pretty flat course, finishing with a 5km flat run. Swimmers are set off singly or in pairs at 30 or 15 second intervals. (Format confirmation closer to the race date), with the fastest swimmers off first to minimise the need to overtake in the pool.
This is a great race for all standards, from the absolute beginner right through to the seasoned triathlete.
This is a non-draft legal race.
The first swimmers will start at 06:30am.

The race starts and finishes in the same location at the Hatfield Sports Village.
Swim: The swim is situated in the HSV 8 lane, 25m pool. The fastest swimmer will set off first, then after each 50m, you will duck under the lane rope. After you have crossed the entire pool, having swum a total of 400m, you will exit out of the outside door, to transition. Bike: Transition is 10m away from the swimming pool. You will head out on your bike, where the bulk of the course will be made up on Cooper’s Green Lane – a fantastic road for time trialling. There are two turn-around points on the course, after which you will come back to HSV for the run. Run: The run is a single lap 5K course, on the local Ellenbrooke Fields. Despite being in a triathlon, we see lots of 5K PBs every year on this course.
