A leisurely midday start sees the first competitors setting off on their epic journey.
The 1900 metre swim takes place in the safe, calm waters of Allerthorpe Lakeland Park. Experience the freedom and enjoyment of open water swimming with the full support of a very experienced water safety crew.
With great visibility throughout the swim and an easy to navigate swim course, you can focus your attention on achieving your best effort for the swim, whilst your supporters will be able to enjoy a view of the entire swim course as you tackle the first discipline of the Sundowner Tri
Having completed the swim you’ll soon experience the flat, fast quiet country roads around Allerthorpe (just 10 miles from York).
Feed stations are available on route for you to re-fuel as you tackle the beautiful, scenic 90 kilometre bike route.
The 2 lap circuit is fully signed and our Freebird marshals will encourage and direct you all the way, making the course very easy to navigate.
Completing the first lap, enjoy the fantastic support from the crowd as you take on fuel and settle down into lap two.
Swim and bike complete, you’ve just got the final part of your triathlon to go.
The 21km run is made up of 3 laps, beginning with a short loop around the lakes before heading out of the park on a buzzing out and back circuit.
The atmosphere on the run is amazing as runners fill the roads.
With 5 feed stations on each lap, we’ll keep you fuelled as you pound out the kilometres.
Returning back to Allerthorpe Lakeland Park, enjoy those final moments and experience the crowd of supporters welcoming you back to cross the finish line having completed the Sundowner Triathlon.
Competitors’ final race information will be emailed out to you approximately 10 days before the Sundowner Triathlon.
Of course we will be in touch before this, keeping you up to date with any new race info, along with training tips and ideas that may just help you achieve your very best effort on race day.
