Enter online 2022

As this is our 10th Anniversary we plan on making this one special. 

Click here to go on our mail out list. We don’t send out more than one e-mail a month. 

We are listed in the top 6 Long-distance race in Europe for being beginner friendly    



Important race information below for this years race

The first will start at 5.30pm for the quarter and the half.

The full distance race will start at 6pm. You will be asked to wait on the pavement to keep transition clear. 

Doing this the faster people in the standard will be finishing as the Full distance competitors will be going out on the bike. This will reduce the number of people on the bike course at any one time.

Wet suits are optional. I would sooner everyone wear one but we can’t make you. If it goes over 22 degrees Standard, 23 for the half and 24 for the full distance race it becomes a no wet suit swim. 

Spectators can now attend the event but we do ask you to keep apart. We do also now a tea wagon coming along. Not sure how long they will stay for as its a long night

Remember to bring the following to make the race easer for you

1  Lights on your bike for the Full and half. 

2  Speedo so you can keep an eye on how far you cycled. There will be a lap counter on the  bike and run

3 There will be a large TV screen by the finish area so  you can double check.     

4  You will be given a Aid bag at registration to put anything you need during the bike or run. This will by the feed station in number order. It does get very cold during the night due to being close to 2 lakes and the river.

Important covid19 race day information  Please read this before race day

The cut off times are as follows for the full distance.                                                                                     

Swim 8.15pm (2.15), Bike 4.30am ( 10.30 hours) Finish 11am (17.00)     

There are no real cut off times for the other distances as we are there all night.
