Sudbury Sprint Triathlon

The Thomas Gainsborough School Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 0NH
United Kingdom
Super Sprint

The Sudbury Triathlon is suited to triathletes of all abilities. The short distances and friendly atmosphere make this event ideal for the first time competitor, whilst offering the more experienced competitors some close racing on a challenging undulating bike course

The 400m swim will take place at the open air pool at the Great Cornard Sports Centre . Swimmers will be seperated into waves depending on their estimated swim time.

The bike route heads south through the beautiful Suffolk countryside to the village of Bures, where the course takes a sharp left turn and begins a climb to the top of Cuckoo Hill. From here, riders will continue following the quiet lanes until they reach a 'T' junction where they will turn left to join the main road and head back towards Sudbury. The last stretch of 2.4km starts at the roundabout at the end of this road, from where it is a fast race back to the transition. 

The 5km run takes place on the school / football club fields. Runners will complete 2 laps of the course before heading on the tarmac path with a straight line sprint to the finish!
