Fritton Lake Triathlon Festival Weekend 2017

Take part in Norfolk’s favourite weekend of triathlon at the beautiful Fritton Lake Country Park. 

Across the  June weekend there are three distances to race; Super Sprint, Sprint and Standard.  You also have the option to take on the Triple Tri Challenge, completing all three triathlons or get together a group of 3 to complete the Standard as a relay team.

With the swim taking place in the lake, the cycle on roads surrounding the Somerleyton estate and the off road run taking in woodland trails and paths around the Country Park this event is spectator friendly and one to bring the whole family to.

 This weekend of racing is more than just triathlon. With ample accommodation onsite from camping to B&B and self catering woodland lodges  it’s the perfect family day out or weekend away.

Each participant within the team will tackle one element of the race. Therefore you will need to find a swimmer, a cyclist and a runner capable of completing their respective elements. You’ll race alongside all the other Olympic entrants, but your team will be eligible for a different round of trophies specifically for the relay teams.

As you cross the finish line you will be greeted by the sound of the Beach radio playing summer music, crowds cheering and the race commentator cheering you on.
