The iconic Avenger Triathlons return to Ragley Hall, near Alcester in Warwickshire for the fifth time.
The start and finish for all three distances will be in the magnificent Ragley grounds, which also provide activities for all the family.The swim takes place in the boating lake and is based on a 650m lap. From the lake it is a short, slightly uphill run to transition. The bike routes then take competitors along the drive and out into the beautiful, rolling Warwickshire and Worcestershire countryside, returning to Ragley Hall via the imposing main gates and up the sweeping drive past the Hall itself.
The run course, used for the first time in 2016, is based on a 5km lap through woodland tracks, gardens, historic outbuildings and fields of the estate. This provides all the competitors with a chance to enjoy some of the spectacular scenery Ragley Hall has to offer. In 2016, competitors described the run course as tough but stunning, with great support all the way round.
Non members of British Triathlon must also pay £5 for a day licence.
Each competitor will get a free spectator ticket for entry before 10:00 and can buy additional reduced price tickets before 10:00
