Blithfield Standard Triathlon

Blithfield Standard Triathlon

Blithfield is ideal for a fast ‘Olympic’ distance Triathlon with a 2 lap 1500M swim in the deep waters of Blithfield Reservoir, followed by a 2 lap rolling virtually traffic free bike 40K and finished off with a 2 lap 10K flat run course.

Entries close Sunday 6th August 2023 10:00 PM

Blithfield Reservoir is situated in some of Staffordshire’s most beautiful countryside. The 790 acre reservoir was opened in 1952 and much of the surrounding woodland is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The race is based at the Sailing Club and provides an opportunity to either compete at the Sprint distance or the Olympic distance. Free camping is provided ensuring a great family weekend with a fast rolling bike, which promises to be a PB course. The event has been taking place since 2006 and has placed host to the English Age-Group Sprint Championships in the past and for the 2nd time the English Championship status returns in 2023.

The event HQ will be based at Blithfield Sailing Club in rural Staffordshire off Seedcroft Lane, which is located on the B5014 near Abbots Bromley with good access from the A50 & A38. The Sailing Club is signposted at the Seedcroft Lane entrance. The Sailing club address is:- Blithfield Reservoir, Waters Lane, Abbotts Bromley, Staffordshire. WS15 3DU
