The Event

The UK Ultimate Triathlon is like it says, the ultimate triathlon challenge. This demanding and much sought after 'iron distance' event will return yet again to the beautiful Dearnford Lake venue in Whitchurch, Shropshire on the 16th of August 2015.

Places are strictly limited  to 200 and are expected to fill fast so make sure you enter early to secure your place.

If the long distance UK Ultimate Triathlon is not for you then the UK Ultimate 'Half' Triathlon may be. 

  • Probably the fastest 'iron distance' in the country
  • Freshwater multi-lap lake swim with Australian exit in between laps
  • Fast & flat cycle & run routes, ideal for PB's
  • Swim start, transition & run finish all within a stone's throw of each other
  • Chip timed
  • Fantastic picturesque venue with on-site facilities including parking, camping/caravanning and lakeside cafe
  • Spectator friendly venue, great for supporting friends and family
  • Includes finishers medal, official race T-shirt and goodie bag
