Saturday 29th August saw the 13th edition of the Vitruvian Triathlon, and the award-winning middle-distance race was blessed with the best of the weather from an otherwise soggy bank holiday weekend. 


In warm temperatures and bright sunshine it was an early start as always for the 800 entrants, with waves starting from 6:15am to begin the the 1.9km lake swim. Swimmers completed two 950m laps, broken up by a brief exit from the water and a 25m run back into the jetty to complete the swim course. 

The 85km 2-lap bike course had some nasty surprises packed in, including a huge, lung-busting climb halfway into each lap – however warm sunshine ensured the route was well-spectated and dry throughout.
