226Wknd was launched in 2016, and will run again on June 24th & 25th 2017 – Entries open Oct 1st
Saturday is a 1.9/3.8km Swim on the Cotswold226 Course
Sunday will feature a 90 or 180km Tri Rules Cyclo sportive on the 226 course alongside the 226 competitors themselves. Unlike traditional sportives, this will be fully tri rules, so no drafting, and will be fully supported with moto refs, moto support, fully stocked aid stations, closed sections of road and police.
We’re conscious that many athletes like to do a sportive as training for a later season IM race, but are put off by the pack riding, and the general non-acceptance of triathletes turning up on TT bikes with aero helmets and tri suits wanting to ride alone for the duration.
226 and 226 sportive competitors will be differentiated by a different coloured race number, but will be treated the same.
Many cyclists will want to have a short run afterwards for a brick session, so we will provide secure racking, and a short 2 mile marked loop.
We expect to get around 250 competitors for the 226, and around 150-200 for the 226 sportive, so the course should never be busy or lonely.
Registration will be available on both days
