Welcome to the Hitchin Triathlon. Based at Hitchin swimming pool, this sprint distance triathlon is unique compared to other sprint triathlons in that the swim takes place in the 50m outdoor pool in Hitchin, giving you the safety and security of a pool-based swim but that outdoor feel. This event takes place in the heart of British summertime in early July. The course takes in the outdoor pool swim that is 400m, followed by a mildly undulating – flat course on the bike that is 20km, and then the 5km run takes in 2 laps of a course that takes you in to the heart of Hitchin and back for what is a truly unique course and experience. The race started in 2017 and is already open for entries for 2018 and will take place on 8th July, 6.30am start.
