Marlow Classic Half Iron Distance Triathlon

The Marlow Classic Half Iron Distance is the only long distance event in the Thames Valley. a fairly flat scenic course taking in the views of Marlow and the surrounding areas.

The event is set to attract over 700 participants, as the world of endurance sports and triathlon creates massive demand for longer distance events over the shorter distances that have originally formed this great sport.

The swim is a 1900 metre one lap course in the River Thames and is designed to make even the weakest swimmer get a fast swim split.

The Bike course is 85.6km with a very popular 3 Lap course on the far end of the route.

*All participants must have at least 2 water bottles before the start of the bike

The Run is 4 laps of 5km route on Tarmac and Grass Footpaths and meanders back towards Marlow and into the finish at Higginson Park from the river tow path.

Refunds/Transfers/Instalments

At F3 Events we want to allow all participants the opportunity to still take part in an event in the future if they are not able to attend the initial chosen event for some reason or another.

All these amendments incur an internal cost to the events business, and the reason for applying the transfer/ deferral fee.  We are one of only a hand full of companies that allow this to take place and would rather participants have an opportunity, up until a point when we are not able to make any changes, to make a future event possible.

Transfers

  • You may trade your entry for a Transfer Credit at a cost of £30.00 until 27/05/2018.
  • You will have 12 months (from the date of the event) to spend your Transfer Credit. You may also use your Transfer Credit to enter someone else.
