Stunning new run course revealed for 2018 Woburn Abbey Triathlon
9th August 2018
Saturday participants at the Woburn Abbey Triathlon, which takes place on the weekend of 8 and 9 September, will this year enjoy a brand-new run course with access to a normally private area of the Park.
Over 2000 triathletes are expected to take part in the 2018 event, famed for its iconic venue and unrivalled family experience. The perfect season finisher, the event includes a range of triathlon options with run distances from 2.5km up to 21.1km. Those participants taking part in the Sprint, Olympic and 220 Triathlon WoBurner on the Saturday will now enjoy a brand-new run course section through ‘The Evergreen’.
“We are extremely grateful to the Duke for allowing this exciting development to the Woburn Abbey Triathlon run course,” says CEO Human Race Events Nick Rusling. “The location is already spectacular, with the lake swim right in front of Woburn Abbey, and a beautiful, undulating bike route. To finish up with such a stunning run course is really the icing on the cake.”
With the number one triathlon magazine 220 Triathlon coming on board as the title partner of the middle-distance triathlon, the WoBurner, and the exciting new run course, the 2018 Woburn Abbey Triathlon is set to be a spectacular event this autumn. The event is organised by Human Race Events in partnership with charity tri for life, which has raised over £2.4million to date for chosen charity beneficiaries including Great Ormond Street Hospital and Melanoma Focus Cancer Research.
