The Tri247 team has been scouring the 2012 event calendars for interesting NEW events joining the ever increasing annual multisport schedule. Here is what caught our eyes for new events in the South East Region in 2012, featuring a new Middle Distance race from F3 Events and an interesting new race/format at a familiar Buckinghamshire venue.

Click on the links below to read our selections for all of the other regions too, and perhaps find something new to enter in 2012.




This event will be the first venture from F3 Events into the middle distance arena, and with the triathlete dense regions of London, South East and South West all handily located, we expect this one to be a very popular Summer destination for long distance athletes. The swim course is certainly one of the most scenic we have experienced and Marlow certainly ticks the 'picturesque' box.

Course distances are advertised as 1.9km (river) swim / 86km bike / 20km run. Race HQ will be Higginson Park, where swim start / transitions / finish will all be centrally located.

The River Thames swim is a simple out-and-back affair, before athletes take on a two and a half lap cycle utilising the main Henley / Marlow road, which aside from a couple of hills will give you plenty of opportunity to rest on the aerobars. The run course is four laps of 5km.

You can enter here now.

The TriStar brand is coming to the UK, and the familiar-to-triathletes venue of Emberton Country Park will be its home, the race jointly organized by Star Events and Big Cow Events.

The TriStar111 event comprises of a 1km swim / 100km bike / 10km, shaking up the usual triathlon distances a little with a relatively long bike. As such, it should provide a great opportunity for standard distance athletes considering a move to middle distances with a natural transition, and for athletes generally with a long(ish) distance event that should minimise recovery time with 'just' a 10km at the end. Or just a chance to smash the bike and hang on!

More details on this new event available in this announcement.
