The Eton Sprints Weekend is widely regarded as the official start of the UK triathlon season. Taking place at the fantastic Eton Dorney Lake, one of the iconic venues of the 2012 Olympic Games, swim takes place in the clear, clean waters of the rowing lake before taking to the closed, flat road circuit. The final run follows an out and back course along the side of the rowing tank on tarmac paths.
The venue provides the ideal environment for first time triathletes or experienced athletes looking to get an early season time under their belt and there’s always a buzzing atmosphere for both participants and supporters alike.
The Sunday also includes the ITU Sprint Distance Triathlon World Championships Qualifier, which is a qualifying event for the 2018 (Gold Coast) and 2019 (Lausanne) Championships.
