The Viridian Daventry Triathlon 2018 Date Announced
The Viridian Daventry Triathlon will take place on Sunday, September 9th 2018, and will again be sponsored by local Daventry business Viridian Nutrition and organised by Rugby Triathlon Club.
This 400m pool-based sprint race starts in the Daventry Leisure Centre, offers a great 20km cycle section through the local Northamptonshire countryside and a scenic 5km run around Daventry Country Park.
In seven years, this race has established itself as being well-run and safe offering a great starting point not only for those new to the sport but to the more experienced triathlete looking for a challenge.
There will be road closures for the finish area, a t-shirt, iconic medal for all finishers and age category prizes.
The men’s course record, set in 2015 by Jack Bond, is 55:04 and the ladies’ course record of 1:04:58, set at the first triathlon in Daventry by Emily Whitmore, is still the time to beat.
The Viridian Gold Team ‘invitational’ competition will also be taking place. This year the fastest finishing times of three club mates (from eligible clubs only) will be added together to produce an overall winning team. All individual finishing times will also be included in the results for the main sprint race.
Enter Together : Train Together : Race Together : Win Together : Brag Together!
The Viridian Gold Team ‘invitational’ sprint triathlon will take place again on September 9th, 2018, but the format has changed a little.
This year the format will be slightly different. The fastest finishing times of three club mates (from invited clubs only) will be added together to produce an overall winning team. Times will be taken from two men and one lady or two ladies and one man. All individual finishing times will also be included in the results for the main sprint race. Last year, this 'invitational' competitive element made for some excellent racing between the invited clubs with Nuneaton Triathlon Club coming out on top. Who will claim the bragging rights this year?
As before, there will be great bike and run courses, friendly support from Rugby Triathlon Club and goodies, an iconic medal and t-shirt courtesy of our main sponsor Viridian Nutrition.
Race entrants will complete all three disciplines as part of the main Viridian Daventry Triathlon (ie swim 400m at Daventry Leisure Centre, cycle 20k through beautiful countryside and run 5k around Daventry Country Park), at the same time as other competitors.
