The Matlock Triathlon is not a BTF affiliated event and is organised by Matlock AC with help from Matlock and District Swimming Club and Matlock Cycling Club. As such, costs are kept low and we aim to make the event as simple and enjoyable as possible.
Entries are online via Fabian 4, although please contact us directly if this is a problem and you wish to use some other method.
Full and final instructions will be sent out about a week before the race.
The race is at the Arc Leisure Centre in Matlock and you will be required to present yourself at least 20 minutes before your start time at race registration where you will simply have your lower leg marked with your race number. This does away with the need for anything more elaborate.
Start times will have been published in your final instructions and they will start at 7.00am.
The swim is 400m (16 lengths). 8 people (1 per lane) will start every five minutes and the lane marshals will instruct you which way to swim and count your lengths.
The cycle is 16km and is undulating but not brutal. No drafting is allowed and helmets must be worn. Any competitor under the age of 12 must be accompanied on the ride by an adult. (Route map below.)
The run is a two lapper and also undulates around various roads and paths near the leisure centre. (Route map below.)
A presentation will take place after the last finisher arrives back and the winning man and winning woman will be asked to choose a charity to benefit from some of the event’s proceeds.
There will be a special prize category for novices who have never done a triathlon before.
It has always been a great event and we look forward to seeing you.
Closing Date for entries 24 August
Start times will have been published in your final instructions. The first competitors will start at 7.00am.
