The Lakesman & Lakesman Half
June 16, 2019SOLD OUT
In 2019 we plan to build on the outstanding success of the Lakesman Triathlon and bring you an event which is as much of an experience to the senses as it is a challenge to your stamina.
The 2018 long distance race received fantastic feedback from competitors, spectators and locals alike. Our independent research found that 100% of spectators would come back to watch the event again, and a fantastic 97% of athletes would compete again and recommend the event to others. The 2016 event was also ranked as one of the UK’s best triathlon events.
Designed to appeal to both the experienced or novice endurance athlete the race is based in Keswick, with a superb transition area at The Theatre by the Lake. The swim takes place in the crystal clear waters of Derwentwater, generally regarded on the Lake Districts most scenic lakes. Both bike route make their way to the west coast of Cumbria where competitors get to experience a side of the lakes often unvisited by tourists, with mountains on one side and the sea on the other. During the run stage athletes will have the opportunity running through superb countryside with views to the likes of Skiddaw as well as a spectator friendly section through Keswick town centre. We hope you find all the information you need on our site and we look forward to seeing you in 2019!
