General info

Booking fees and extra costs

There aren't any! As athlete we find it annoying when booking fees are a huge hidden chunk added in the basket and everything is an extra, parking, merch and anything else. The fee you see is the fee you pay, it includes all your parking fees, card payments, taxes, finisher T-shirt  and everything you need to race. The only exception is a BTF licence if you're not a BTF member but that's standard across all triathlon events.

The Swim

A special experience not swim in the lake at Burghley House. Adjacent to the main event hub, transition and everything that you need at the event. The lake has been opened especially for us to enjoy.

The Bike

The bike​ course utilises the road network around Burghley House in the Peterborough countryside. Athletes will complete laps depending on the distance raced

The course is closed to all through traffic but we must allow access for residents and businesses trapped within the course (seems fair and reasonable). Although a closed road course athletes should ride within the Highway Code and be aware of cars accessing their property intermittently throughout the morning. 

 

The Run

Through the fantastic Burghley estate. We've created a route full of interest. Athletes will run around the main parkland past Burghley House. 

Transition and event site

Right in front of Burghley House in their impressive parkland. You'll struggle to find much more iconic locations to rack your bikes.

The event hub with food stands, registration and stall holders is adjacent to transition for your enjoyment and convenience. 

Registration

All entries are processed on the website prior to the event. There will be no race day entries. 

Athlete registration/check-in will be located at the event village. There will be two opportunities to register for the triathlon events. once on Saturday afternoon/evening and a short opportunity on Sunday morning before the race.

 

Start times

All athletes will be split into waves depending on their chosen distance. They will then be divided into age group wave starts. 

We do have the option to select a beginner wave on the entry forms.

Waves will start between 6:30am and 8:00am

Race briefing
