The Nottingham Sprint Triathlon returns to The National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham on Saturday 19th May 2018, and entries are open.
The 2018 Nottingham Sprint Triathlon has been selected once again to be a 2018 ETU Sprint Distance Triathlon qualification event. Organisers OSB Events are delighted to have gained the title back and to be hosting the event for another year.
If you are interested in becoming an Age Group athlete, you must register your interest with British Triathlon.
The National Water Sports Centre is the perfect venue for testing yourself on a perfectly flat course. Whether you are an experienced athlete looking for a fast time over the sprint distance or a novice competitor looking for a safe and friendly venue for your first open water triathlon, the Nottingham Sprint Triathlon is your perfect event.
Whatever your ability, the atmosphere at The National Water Sports Centre is electric and the impressive grandstand, PA system and big crowds will push you to achieve more than you thought yourself capable of. The fully closed-road circuit-style race is fantastic for first-time triathletes as well as for those trying to qualify for the national Age Group squad.
The race itself starts with a 750m open water swim in the regatta lake, following a simple out and back course. This leads on to a 20km bike ride consisting of 4 laps of the perimeter lake – making any wind a hindrance in one direction, but a big help in the other. The triathlon finishes with a 5km run, on- and off-road, before taking competitors past the cheering grandstand to the finishing line. It is a truly impressive course with fantastic support all the way.
The Nottingham Sprint Triathlon is a brilliant event to bring family and friends to, with ample car parking as well as camping facilities. Supporters can watch competitors swim, bike and run whilst enjoying the park environment and various activities on site. The venue boasts two cafes, changing and shower facilities, and easy access to Nottingham city centre which is just two miles down the road.
The course record for the Nottingham Sprint Triathlon is 00:54:44 (male) and 01:02:32 (female).
