Along with the full calendar, two of the Active Outdoor Sports events to check out for 2018 are the Triple Tri Challenge at Fritton Lake Triathlon Weekend and the SwimRun events.
The Triple Tri Challenge is a unique challenge where triathletes take on all 3 classic distances (sprint, super sprint and standard) over the course of one weekend. Entrants are eligible for prizes in the individual events and also for a separate round of prizes based on aggregate time. What’s more, entrants pay for just 2 of the distances, getting the super sprint free! That’s 3 triathlons, 1 weekend all for the cost of a Sprint and a Standard! You can read more about it here.
The SwimRun at Fritton Lake was a sell-out success in 2017 with competitors racing in pairs over a 10km course. Due to the positive feedback from entrants, both a Summer and an Autumn SwimRun will take place in 2018. The Summer Edition takes place in July (Summer skies, warm water & the pristine woodlands of the Somerleyton Estate) and the Autumn Edition in October (cooler water in the true tradition of Otillo and the colours of Autumn around Fritton Lake). Both SwimRun events cover the same course with the swim taking in areas of Fritton Lake that are little used for swimming and the run on beautiful woodland trails through areas of the Somerleyton Estate not normally accessible to the public. Just a little twist in that the Autumn Edition covers the course in the opposite direction to the Summer Edition! Everything you need to know can be found here.
