Ulverston Pool Triathlon 2019

This is the opening round of the EPIC Triathlon Series. It's a 400m pool swim, a 28k out and back coastal road cycle route and a 5.8k road run. This event has traditionally been our 'Inspire2Tri' novice event as it's great for first timers. That said, we also get a wide range of abilities, including some of the region's elite athletes. It's a... read more perfect start to your season, so come and 'test your legs' before the big summer races. There's a relaxed atmosphere, apart from when the coastal wind blows, then you see a few 'strained faces' out on the course.
