Allerthorpe Super Sprint Triathlon, East Yorkshire: 400m
Comprising a 400m smooth open water lake swim in the safe man-made Allerthorpe Lake.
The swim at Allerthorpe Lakeland Park is a 400m open water swim set in the shallow and clear Allerthorpe Lakeland Park. Water depth is no more than 5 ft, so it’s pretty easy to stand up should you feel the need; it’s a swim, though, so no walking is allowed. The swim is wetsuit legal, so for all of us “weaker” swimmers, the wetsuit will really help keep those legs up to reduce drag.
Allerthorpe Lakeland Park is well sheltered from the wind, so the water is flat and not choppy, making breathing so much easier, because other than the splashes from fellow Tri-athletes, there are no waves.
Having completed the swim, it’s an easy jog to the bike rack to locate your bike and prepare for the 10k bike leg.
Allerthorpe Super Sprint Triathlon, East Yorkshire: 10km
A flat 10km road bike course around the quiet country lanes.
The roads around Allerthorpe are very flat, so is the bike course, and it should be easily tackled by anyone who is fit enough to ride a bike for around an hour.
Although a road bike is recommended, the flat course makes the ride suitable for almost any bike. Many first-timers borrow a bike or use mountain or hybrid bikes. Of course, you will likely complete the ride in a faster time if you use a road bike and are used to riding one; however, you will be able to complete the Allerthorpe Super Sprint Triathlon on anything with two wheels. Make sure it’s is in good working order and roadworthy. Marshalls will be looking over bikes in the racking area.
Allerthorpe Super Sprint Triathlon, East Yorkshire: 2.5km
A very flat and pretty 2.5km run. It’s ideal for first-timers or those wanting an early season PB.
For the third and final discipline of your race, you will exit the transition area after racking your bike and venture out onto a single flat loop 2.5km run course.
As you cross the finish line, you will receive your Marauder finishers T-shirt, and you can proudly say, “I’ve done a Triathlon!”
Drinks and refreshments will be available at the finish. The race will be chip timed. You will be able to find out your overall time and times for each segment of the race immediately. Full race results will be available within 24 hours of the race finishing here on the website.
Super Sprint Triathlon FAQ's
WHAT TYPE OF PEOPLE DO A SUPER SPRINT TRIATHLON?
Super Sprint Triathlon
A Super Sprint Triathlon is a very short Triathlon aimed at people who want to dip their toe in the water and have a go.
The environment is deliberately relaxed and fun, there’s nothing to prove, and there is no one to impress. Apart from us, because we are delighted, none of the other people care that it’s your first Triathlon. Like you, they don’t care about anyone else; they are there to give it a go, nothing more and certainly nothing less.
So, a Super Sprint triathlon is for you if:
- You are not a swimmer but can swim 2-3 lengths of a 25m pool.
- You wouldn’t necessarily call yourself a cyclist but could ride a bike at a steady pace for 30 to 60 minutes.
- You might do a bit of jogging on the running machine at home or the gym and can jog for 30-40 minutes or walk and run 2.5k.
- You used to be “quite fit” but have spent the last 20 years sitting behind a desk.
- Need, just a little challenge, to motivate you to keep going to the gym or your training programme.:</strong></span>
