Pippingford Park – 9th September 2017
Our goal: to build the best Off Road Triathlon for youEventRex UK Ltd
We have brilliant support from the owners of Pippingford Park, they are as excited about this event as we are and between us we have some ambitious plans that will become apparent over time.
However, the support we really need is from you; we have the basics covered but would really help us make this great is if you to drop us a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about your experience of off road triathlon, what did you like, what didn’t you like, favourite course content, the nice touches like medals & t-shirts, there are no holes barred so show us what you’ve got, oh and maybe most importantly what would make you want to join us on 9th September?
What to expect:
Pippingford Park is an awesome venue, it’s an 800 acre private country estate nestled in the Ash Down Forest which is a 30mins drive from Gatwick Airport. The route taken by the Triathlon is totally off road and is all natural, it’s full of challenging climbs and fun descents that will have you grinning from ear to ear! While all elements of the event are designed to be accessible and enjoyable they will push you, off road multi-sport events are suppose to be tough, but you will come away with a huge sense of satisfaction and you’ll take great pride in beating the course!

Swim, Ride, Run…
A point to point swim made up from 3 of Pippingford’s lakes for the Full Fat competitors; the entire swim leg is approximately 1,000m long with a short portage between each lake and a run up to transition. All runs and transition will be matted. Sugar Free competitors will swim 2 lakes
Pippingford Park is set in over 800 acres of rolling countryside – It already plays host to the successful SouthernXC mountain bike races and in the past has hosted British Cycling’s Nation XC Champs and Marathon Champs, as a result there is some first class singletrack sections scattered around the woods. We’re aiming for the course to have around 50% singletrack with woodland tracks and fire access roads making up the rest. They’ll be plenty of options for overtaking for those making up time after the swimming section. Full Fat competitors will complete 2 laps of a 12km loop, with the Sugar Free competitors completing 1 lap.
The opening part of the run heads up through a twisty woodland path, before heading over the open meadows towards the Manor House. From there racers will head down the hill into and out of the woods towards the finish. Full Fat competitors will complete 2 laps, with Sugar Free completing 1 lap.
