2017 ETU Sprint Distance Triathlon Qualifier

The National Water Sports Centre is the perfect venue for testing yourself on a perfectly flat course where the tempo is high and the competition is fierce (and friendly!)

Whether you’re an experienced athlete looking for a fast time over the sprint distance or you’re a novice competitor looking for a safe and friendly venue for your first open water triathlon, then the Nottingham Triathlon is the perfect event.

The arena type venue with an overlooking grandstand, blaring PA, electric atmosphere and big crowds will push you beyond what you think you're capable of. Whether it's your first triathlon or you're trying to qualify for the national Age-Group squad, we guarantee you'll enjoy the fully closed road-circuit style race and the extra support that brings with it.

The swim takes place in the regatta lake, with a simple out and back course followed by four laps of the perimeter lake on the bike. Don’t forget the wind, which can push you back in one direction, but also propel you at high speeds in the opposite direction. The run covers on and off road sections before taking you past the cheering grandstand to the finishing line.

This fantastic venue offers camping and ample free car-parking, making it the perfect event to bring the family to, as they'll get to see you swim, bike and run as well as have the opportunity to enjoy the park environment and various activities on site. There are two main cafes on site, changing and shower facilities and very easy access to Nottingham city centre just two miles down the road.
