About the event

Eton Sprints has been selected by British Triathlon as a qualifying race for the 2017 ITU World Championships in Rotterdam, The Netherlands..

With a 750m swim, a safe closed-roads 21.2km draft legal bike course followed by a 5km run course up and down the lake, this is probably the flattest triathlon in the UK.

The level of interest in competing for the Great Britain Age-Group Team at ITU World Championships is higher than ever, so join fellow aspiring team members and race to earn the right to wear the Great Britain tri-suit.

If you’d rather not pit yourself against the best of the triathlon field, just come down to race in the Eton Sprints against other like-minded triathletes on a fast, flat course with a great atmosphere. All Eton Sprints entrants will be in separate waves to the Qualifier event based on gender and age.
