JOIN US FOR THE STEWARTBY TRIATHLON ON SUNDAY 11th JULY 2021.
Located at the Stewartby Sailing Club, in Bedford, this venue is perfect for triathlon. You will be treated to a dip in the beautiful lake waters, followed by a very fast, flat, lapped road bike course (in fact we’d say its the fastest triathlon road bike leg in the country!), finishing with a scenic, traffic-free run on paths alongside the lake into Marston Vale Country Park.
Options available for Standard and Sprint, individual and relay, triathlon and aquabike.
The event will start at 07:00am, with registration open from 06:00am. All events will take the style of a time trial with the fastest athletes starting the swim first, based on the estimated swim time given when entering. This format may change depending on the Covid restrictions in place at the 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)
