Derby Triathlon is aimed at all levels of fitness and ability, whether it’s your first triathlon or you are the next Olympic hopeful. Last year we had an increase in first time competitors, with 55% of the field being new to the great fun sport of triathlon.

You can enter as an individual and complete all three disciplines on your own, the relay event with friends or colleagues and enjoy the race as a team or the corporate event where each team member completes the full triathlon.

The swim will take place in Etwall Leisure centre, which is a modern 6 lane 25M swimming pool. Each swimmer will be set off according to estimated swim times on a time trial basis. Swimmers will start in the water in the shallow end and exit out of the fire exit and run to the back field where the Transition area is located.

Upon leaving the school grounds (side entrance) turn left through Etwall village (please note pedestrian crossing). At A516 roundabout take 2nd exit, extreme caution, this will take you down a country lane to a cross roads where you turn left onto Radbourne Lane. Continue down radbourne lane until Sutton On the Hill where where you take a right hand turn (landmark: church on right hand side) this will take you through the village and over the A50. At T junction (Hilton) turn left onto A516. You will cycle over three roundabouts back towards Etwall. At Etwall island turn around (caution for oncoming cyclists) and retrace route back along A516. Taking first left back into Etwall village and enter transition area. This will be fully Marshalled and sign posted. The cycle section is strictly a non-drafting/pacing event and is referred to in the British Triathlon rules which is available on the website www.britishtriathlon.org,
If a marshal tells you to stop at a junction or slow down leading up to a junction, it is for your safety.


On returning to the transition area cyclist must dismount at the line. You must leave your helmet fastened until your bike has been racked. Then head for the ‘Run Out’ (opposite end to ‘bike in’) entrance and proceed around the perimeter of the grounds past the tennis courts and up the hill through the side path by the church. This brings you out at the front of the school in the village. Turn Left and then take a left hand turn down Sutton Lane. The turning point is about 1 mile down this lane where you will retrace steps back towards the transition area and turn left to Finish. This will be fully Marshalled and sign posted.
