20,000th person to cross the line at the Nuffield Health Eton SuperSprints
3rd March 2016
The ever popular Nuffield Health Eton SuperSprints triathlons are back on 21st and 22nd May, and after 14 years event organisers Human Race, along with their new official health and wellbeing partner Nuffield Health, will welcome their 20,000th competitor. To celebrate the milestone and the enduring popularity of the event, the 20,000th person over the line will win a Human Race 2017 Triathlon Pass, plus a one year membership to a Nuffield Health fitness & wellbeing gym.
Widely regarded as the official start of the UK triathlon season, the vast number confirms the Nuffield Health Eton SuperSprints as being an important event for triathletes whether they are first timers or experienced athletes looking to get an early season fast time under their belt.
Starting with a 400m open water swim in the clear and clean waters of Eton Dorney Lake, one of the iconic venues of the 2012 Olympic Games, triathletes then take to the closed, flat road circuit for a 4-lap bike course covering 21.2k of the spectacular 450-acre parkland. The final 5k run follows a two 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. There is limited capacity for these popular waves which sold out in 2015.
The event always has a buzzing atmosphere for both participants and supporters alike. Don’t miss the opportunity to start your season in the best possible surroundings.
