2018 Dorney Lake record holders announced.
As the triathlon year draws to a close, thousands of triathletes descended on Dorney Lake for one final hurrah at the Human Race Season Finale Triathlon on 16th September. Part of the Human Race Dorney Lake Triathlon Series, this year Season Finale participants had the chance to battle it out for the chance to be crowned 2018 record holders as part of the ‘Swim.Bike.Run.Champion’ Dorney records competition.
With four adult triathlons at Dorney Lake in 2018, thousands of triathletes swam, cycled and ran their way around this magnificent venue throughout the year. An ideal location for first timers or experienced triathletes, the clear, calm lake waters and closed-road, flat bike and run course make speedy season’s bests more than likely.
Part of a weekend that included memorable sporting achievements in the elite field with Vicky Holland claiming the ITU Triathlon World Championship title, the Season Finale Triathlon also saw some amazing performances. Seven records were smashed across the Sprint and Olympic distances with new winners stepping up to claim the 2018 titles.
