As is tradition – two distances will be on offer in 2016, with the choice of the Sprint (750m swim, 30k bike, 5k run) or the popular Olympic distance (1,5k swim, 42k bike, 10k run).

Triathletes will start in the River Thames, before exiting and heading to transition located in Alexandra Park, in the centre of old Windsor town.

From there they follow a carefully designed bike course that heads through the beautiful rural villages of Berkshire and back into town.

The multi-lap run section takes competitors past the famous Eton College and right alongside Windsor Castle.

The finish straight takes participants back alongside the Thames, where crowds of supporters will congregate to cheer them across the line.

Windsor has become one of the first high profile meetings in the UK and is quickly becoming a must-compete even for triathletes.

This year Emma Pallant, GB athlete turned triathlete will be taking part.

In 2015 Olympic triathlete and former winner Stuart Hayes returned to Windsor to take the male title, whilst Sarah Lewis took the female accolades.
