Do you have what it takes to complete a middle distance triathlon – 1900m swim, 90K bike and 21K run?
This new addition to the triathlon calendar is set in the stunning grounds of Ragley Hall right in the heart of England, and takes place on quiet roads and paths. Whether you’re a first time middle distance eventer or a seasoned triathlete wanting to race in a stunning setting, the Avenger will have something for you.
The undulating bike route is part of the National Road Race Championship cycling course, the swim is in Ragley Hall Lake which is already used by triathletes for open water swimming and the running route takes place in the Hall ‘s scenic grounds, mainly off-road.
What makes it special?
· For a start, it’s £99 – so great value for money
· All the profits go to the organiser’s charity – Kids Run Free (www.kidsrunfree.co.uk)
Raceways Events (www.raceways.eu) set up Kids Run Free to get more children active and passionate about sport. Every weekend they have hundreds of children running at their Kids Run Free events across the Midlands.
