Triathlon Shop Westonbirt Sprint Triathlon
Date: 27 May 2013
Location: Westonbirt, Gloucestershire
The Westonbirt Triathlon sold out in 2011 and 2012, so in 2013, DB Max launch the three-race Westonbirt Series.
This first ‘sprint’ race is on Bank Holiday Monday in the famous South Gloucestershire town and will see a stunning new transition & finish layout in front of the famous Westonbirt House. Places will be limited to 600 in 2013.
The event swim takes place within the grounds of the beautiful Westonbirt Girls School at the Westonbirt Leisure Centre . The swim is in the heated indoor pool, with the bike a fast, flat course, which passes the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum and the Royal Residence of Highgrove. The final run takes place through the school grounds and into Westonbirt Village. Definitely one of the most beautiful locations around for a triathlon, making this a must-do event.
