Buckingham Triathlon

This particularly pleasant triathlon has the swim section at the Buckingham Swan Leisure Centre with ample spectator viewing, an adult country road cycle out of town with a partial woodland run section, and fully enclosed junior events

The Leisure Centre is perfect for the swim section of the event, with its 6 lane pool, modern facilities and looks directly down over the transition area and finish gantry. The adult cycle stage begins by meandering through the ancient part of the town and very quickly leads out to the Buckinghamshire country roads. This fast section takes cyclists through some picturesque villages before returning to Buckingham Town. The adult sprint distance run follows a pleasant out-and-back run route along a section of the wooded circular footpath before finishing by the Leisure Centre.

All children's events, including the adult novice run, are confined to the large Buckingham School sports fields.
