Blithfield Sprint Triathlon (Non Drafting)
- Blithfield Reservoir
The Sprint distance will be a 1 lap affair and run in conjunction with the Standard distance event. Based at the Sailing Club, a great family weekend with a fast rolling bike, which promises to be a PB course.
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 (Non Drafting) or the Olympic distance. 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 in previous years has hosted major championship events.
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

The one lap bike is a fast rolling 20K loop (2 laps for the standard distance)
The one lap run is an out and back run with a mixture of off road and tarmac surface over the dam wall and back, with a feedstation and plenty of time to keep an eye on the opposition.
