5 Reasons You Should Enter the 2018 Lincoln Triathlon

The Lincoln Triathlon takes place on 29 April 2018 so we asked Fi Bell from organisers OSB Events to inspire us to take part!

“The triathlon starts and finishes at the award winning David Lloyd Lincoln Health Club. Athletes will take on a 400m pool swim, a 23km scenic cycle and their 5km run along the towpath of the Fossdyke canal.

“We love this event and think it is great for all abilities, but if you need a little more convincing, here are 5 reasons we think you should book your place today:

1. It’s a Great Excuse to Visit Lincoln

Lincoln is a great city, with lots to do and see – booking onto this sprint triathlon gives you the perfect excuse to spend the afternoon exploring and walking around this historic city. Why not book yourself in somewhere for a post event dinner treat?

2. Bragging Rights

Once you cross that finish line you have the perfect excuse to wear your event t-shirt and medal with pride and let all your friends, family and colleagues know that you completed a triathlon at the weekend!

3. The Flat and Scenic Course

The course has had a big facelift since the previous event, which means that you don’t have to face that big hill anymore!

Not only is the course nice and flat, it takes you through some very lovely locations – you cycle right past the beautiful Doddington Hall.

4. The Award-Winning Start

This triathlon starts and finishes at the award-winning David Lloyd Leisure Health Club, which includes a very nice heated pool.

What better way to start your triathlon?

5. It’s the Only Lincoln Triathlon

This is your one and only chance in 2018 to take part and complete a triathlon in Lincoln - our triathlon is the only triathlon to take place in the wonderful city.

If you are based in or around Lincoln you really don’t have far to travel – and if you don’t it is really easy to get to!”

You can find out more information about the Lincoln Triathlon on the OSB Events website and enter the event on the Active Endurance website.
