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 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.
