MyTriEvents won’t be hosting the Coniston Weekend activities in 2017 due to a number of reasons. The routes will be kept live and if you complete the challenge do drop us an email and we will add you to our wall of fame for 2017.
We hope to gain support for 2018 so if you know of any local companies looking to support a challenging event do get in touch.
A deep water start in the cool but clear waters of Coniston Water one of the Lake Districts most famous and scenic lakes. Competitors will complete one anti clockwise lap.
Due to the nature of this event there is a split transition. Athletes are requested to put their running shoes in transition by the water then run onto the next field where their bikes are racked.
After some consideration we have decided to keep the original bike route but add a compulsory dismount before making the road crossing into the field at the end of the cycle leg.
Single hilly lap south from Coniston on the A593 through Torver to Broughton in Furness, where at the T junction with the A595 turn left towards Dalton in Furness. On the A595 in Grizebeck fork left onto the A5092 towards Greenodd. Climb over Kirkby Moor once decended and in the hamlet of Lowick Green turn sharp left onto unclassified road to join the A5084 back towards Torver and Coniston. On reaching Torver turn right at the T junction onto the A593 back towards Coniston.
The run course is an out and back along the lakeside tracks to the North of the the lake. Fantastic views of Coniston Old Man and the full length of the lake can be seen on the course. Slight change from 2015 making the course accurate to 10km.
