The Conquer the Chilterns triathlon events are set to return to the beautiful grounds of the Culden Estate in Oxfordshire this Sunday 17th September 2017.
Located just outside of Henley-On-Thames, the event takes in some of the best of beautiful rolling Oxfordshire countryside and is the perfect venue for a late season triathlon. There are three race distances on offer – the ‘Sprint Plus’, which consists of a 750m swim, 30km cycle and 5km run, the ‘Olympic Plus’ race which is made up of a 1.5km swim, 50km cycle and 10km run and the ‘Middle Distance’ which takes in a 1.9km swim, 86km bike and 20km run. All swims take place in a quiet, safe and spectator friendly stretch of the River Thames, in which it is possible for supporters to follow the swimmers progress along the riverbank. The bike course then follows an undulating circuit with a good selection of rolling hills. The run course is undulating and takes in the most breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
Martyn Edwards, Event Director for F3 Events says, “We are really looking forward to hosting the Conquer the Chilterns events this year. We have a limited number of spots available for ‘on the day’ entrants, so if you fancy a last minute triathlon challenge, make sure you arrive nice and early and our team will be there to help you get set up. All the very best of luck to everyone that is competing, we look forward to seeing you all at the start!’
All events will be chip timed and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each gender category. There are a number of facilities on site including showers, toilets and refreshments, offering a perfect opportunity to go on and spend the rest of the day enjoying the sights and sounds of Henley and the surrounding area.
