THORPE PARK Resort and Tri Project will once again join forces to host a series of triathlons Like No Other across June, July and September 2017. Just 30 minutes from London, the nation’s thrill capital is an extraordinary race venue and a must-do race for both newcomers and experienced triathletes.

Following the success of the previous events we are pleased to announce that the THORPE PARK Resort Sprint Triathlon on Sunday 4 June 2017, will be Triathlon England’s National Championships.

 

The race will consist of a 750m open water swim, followed by a 20km bike ride, finishing with a 5km run that will take athletes right through the centre of the Park. The winning age group triathlete will gain bragging rights to a national title. 

 

Race Director, Matt Chapman commented: “The triathlons have been a huge success and we are thrilled to be staging the National Championships.  We have had extremely positive feedback from previous competitors who love ending the race on a high in the centre of the Resort and we hope to provide them with more memorable experiences this year.”

Allowing spectators and triathletes to continue their adrenaline fueled day on park on THORPE PARK Resorts flagship coasters such as Stealth which propels guests from 0-80mph to 205ft in under 2 seconds.
