The Event

The UK Ultimate Triathlon is like it says, the ultimate triathlon challenge. This demanding and much sought after 'iron distance' event will return yet again to the beautiful Alderford Lake venue in Whitchurch, Shropshire.

If the long distance UK Ultimate Triathlon is not for you then the UK Ultimate 1/2 Triathlon or the Ultimate 1/4 Triathlon may be.

  • Probably the fastest 'iron distance' in the country
  • Freshwater multi-lap lake swim with Australian exit in between laps
  • Picturesque countryside cycle & run routes, ideal for PB's
  • Swim start, transition & run finish all within a stone's throw of each other
  • Electronic chip timed
  • Fantastic picturesque venue with on-site facilities including showers, parking, camping/caravanning and lakeside cafe
  • Spectator friendly venue, great for supporting friends and family
  • Includes finishers medal and official race T-shirt

Dear all at UK Triathlon,

Now that the dust has settled on the UK Ultimate, I’d justlike to thank everyone for a fantastic race. It was a real privilege to race ina safe and supportive environment, with enthusiastic marshals, loud spectatorsand a wonderful sense of achievement and camaraderie throughout. Great stuff atthe feed stations, a lovely touch to have names on race numbers which allowed atouching degree of personal support, and I would have happily gone down onbended knee and proposed marriage to the nice lady handing out the rubber bandson the run laps – but probably not made it back up onto my feet again…
