The ever popular Eton SuperSprint triathlons are back. The races take place at the fantastic Dorney Lake, one of the venues for the 2012 Olympic Games.
Each race starts with a 400m open water swim in the clear, clean waters of the rowing lake before taking to the closed, flat road circuit for a 4-lap bike course covering 21.2k. The final 5k run follows a 2 lap loop along the side of the rowing tank on tarmac paths.
Each day will offer two MATES WAVES, in which friends will be able to race together. Those wishing to be placed in the same wave must enter through the same Mates Wave entry type. LIMITED CAPACITY...enter early for these waves. Once the waves are full, entry for these waves will close!
