The Marshman Triathlon. This season opener offers 2 races The Marshman Standard (1500m,40k,10k ) and the Marshman Half-Iron (1900m,92k,21k).The flat fast course is complimented by the exceptional transition area - straight out of the lake onto your bike, will you get a PB early season? Fantastic racing at an amazing venue. The perfect event to bring the whole family - the lake is open for all activities from 10am so the children can enjoy a fun ride, learn to water-ski or wakeboard or have the most fun on a Standup Paddleboard while you're racing.

The Exciting Evening Race Series is aimed at  triathletes looking to test themselves throughout the season. Each event is on a Wednesday Evening so as not to interfere with the busy tri calendar, a mid week event in full race conditions allowing you to go for a PB or focus on perfecting transition etc. A great informal series, ideal for all levels from 1st timers, experts or relay teams.

Gala Race Night, an evening event for everyone over 10 years with a great choice of races. Choose from the Supersprint Triathlon1k and 2k SwimsPaddlethon: the most fun in a race - Stand-up paddleboard then a run or the Night Swim: swimming in the pitch black gives a new dimension to any race. A fun night, you can always enter a few races.
