This year’s Brownlee Tri will feature a pontoon swim start for the first time, as well as an new run route, the organisers have confirmed.

The pontoon will take swimmers out to the deep water for the start of the Brownlee Tri and also provide a ramp to swim onto for exiting the lake. This year’s course will also offer a new challenge with a refreshed run route. 

Alistair and Jonny Brownlee’s hugely popular triathlon will once again offer Sprint and Super Sprint distances for individuals, and a Sprint and Corporate Challenge relay for teams around the spectacular course. In addition, the Brownlee Tri also boasts a packed entertainment village for competitors and spectators to enjoy.

Swim route details

The swim route has been enhanced with the introduction of a pontoon for swim entry and exit. The out-and-back anticlockwise route has a short loop for the super-sprint and a longer loop for the sprint. Swim onto the ramp to leave the water, before a short run on grass to transition.
