Over the weekend the Lakesman Triathlon took over the heart of Cumbria. The Lakesman Triathlon is designed to appeal to both the experienced or novice endurance athlete the race is based in Keswick. The swim takes place in the crystal clear waters of Derwentwater. Both bike routes make their way to the west coast of Cumbria where competitors get to experience a side of the lakes often unvisited by tourists. During the run stage athletes will have the opportunity running through superb countryside as well as a spectator friendly section through Keswick town centre.  

The Triathlon consists of:

2.4 Mile Swim 
112 Mile Bike
26.2 Mile Run

Big shout out to our very own Oli Luke who completed it in a brilliant time of 12 hours and 54 minutes. What an achievement!!

If you're tempted to train for something like this in the future why not join our leisure centre.
