We're really pleased to announce that we are working once again with the fantastic Jubilee Park and are back for year two of this much loved Sprint Triathlon !
We loved our first year hosting this event and it was our first ever triathlon we've hosted. We've done our team de-brief and we've got our feedback together to make an even better event in 2024 :)
This event really incorporates all that is great about Lincolnshire, beautiful open countryside and quiet country lanes and of course a swim in the stunning outdoor swimming pool!
Jubilee Park provides an incredible start / finish location, with open air pool, camping & caravanning options, and of course, the magnificent park & gardens.
The event is a British Triathlon Federation licensed event, please familiarise yourself with the rules here. To help find the right sections - this is an Age Group, non drafting sprint pool event :)
Perfect :) ..we had loads of first time triathletes in 2023. It's a very friendly event and we will be supporting with advice and tips on how to train and to help explain how everything works on the day :)
The event see's triathletes (yup that's you!) setting off in waves based on your predicted swim time for 400 metres, so you're generally swimming with people of a similar speed.
And of course, we're bringing all you would expect to find at any of our races.
- Chip timing
- Bespoke themed medal
- Cake at the finish!
- Fun, friendly, and lively atmosphere :)
...and the event also includes a fantastic event t-shirt, designed just for the 2024 event :)

For our triathletes, you don't need to think about too much on the day. We make everything very straight forward for you. Just be nice, be considerate of others and take five mins to have look through the information pack once it's ready (normally 14 days out from the event).
Then watch the pre event day race brief video that we publish on our Facebook site (check out 2023's video here!).
We're also pleased to announce that we are partnering up with Paul and the team at 100% Tri Race Team to bring great value and free novice training support!

Jubilee Park was created for the benefit of the people of Woodhall Spa by Lady Weigall, who built nearby Petwood, now the famous hotel, as her country house. The park was opened in 1935 by Princess Marie Louise and named to mark the Jubilee of King George V. In its earliest days it was known as ‘The Royal Jubilee Park’.
Money from every entry goes to support the park, so thank you for your support :)
