Race information

It’s back to Roadford Lake for the first of our 2 middle distance events of the year. We are also giving Novice’s the chance to experience the sport in this truly memorable location.

Set on the edge of Dartmoor Nr Okehampton and with easy access at Stowford Cross on the A30 this is a great and central location for a triathlon event.

Tim Don once quoted as saying the 70.3 Wimbleball Half Ironman was the toughest in the UK, well we’ve had many competitors say different.

Middle distance

The open water swim is 2 loop course in the spectacular lake with some great views for the spectators on the higher ground.The bike route has a few “ups and downs” within it but also some long straights to get your teeth into but all have some stunning views of Dartmoor and the surrounding area!

The off-road run route around the country park has a mixture of road and track paths and is also undulating but both the bike and run are suitable for all abilities.

Novice distance

The open water swim is a 1 loop 400mtr course in the spectacular lake.The bike route is an “out and back” 10km flat(ish) all road route.

The run route is a 3km slightly hilly mixed terrain loop.
