500m swim, 15km bike, 5km run
Every, year, UK triathlon’s equivalent to Glastonbury attracts more than 2,000 athletes for two days of adrenaline-fuelled race. Teams of four compete in the relatively swift challenge of 500m swim, 15km bike, 5km run in a relay format. You finish the swim. You tag your next (wo)man. They swim. And so forth, and the same applies to the bike and run. In the, at times, single-minded world of competitive triathlon, it’s an enjoyable end-of-season antidote, heightened by the on-site camping and entertainment in the evening.
