Saturday 14th July 2018

Back for it's second year at the stunning St Swithun's School, just outside of Winchester city centre, is the St Swithun's Triathlon.

To begin your race, take to the St Swithun's pool and splash your way through the water in the shallow, beginner friendly 4 lane pool. We will organise the waves of similar ability, so don't worry about those fast timers!

With the impressive grounds always within sight, you'll find transition easily just outside the pool area. With hanging trees and the stunning view of the school here, you'll take to the impending cycle route with a smile! 

Cycling out of the grounds and onto the country roads of Winchester, following a unique trail you will be sure to pass through the quaint villages of Easton and Avington - you may even catch a glimpse of the impressive 17th-century Avington Mansion!

The last leg of the triathlon will consist of a run through the picturesque grounds. Following out of the school and onto the main road - don't worry, our lovely marshals will be on hand directing you - you will be guided back in and around the back of the brand new junior school facilities.

And saving the very best to last, as you come to finish your triathlon, you will find yourself running alongside remarkable outback views of Winchester. Take a breath as you cross the finish line, where our fantastic team of marshals will be ready to greet you with your well-deserved medal.


We only thought it fair to host a Children's Triathlon as well! This is a mini version of the main triathlon, which is chip timed and located all on site. Following the success of previous Children's triathlons,  we felt this would be a great opportunity for the kids to get involved too! Hey, why not make this a day to remember for the whole family? Bring down a picnic, or have the whole family taking part! All children will receive a medal after they have moved through the spectacular facilities for their triathlon event.
