The Westonbirt Sprint Triathlon is back for 2018…!
The Westonbirt Sprint Triathlon has sold out year on year since 2011 and has fast become the “must do” sprint Triathlon in the South West.
The race takes place on Bank Holiday Monday 28th May in the famous South Gloucestershire village and will again see the stunning transition & finish layout in front of the famous Westonbirt House. Places will be strictly limited to 500 in 2018.
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.
