Foxlake (Day) Triathlon

If you prefer your triathlon with daylight as opposed to torchlight then our socially distanced Foxlake (Day) Triathlon 2020 is for you!

Leave the stresses and strains of the working week behind you, and come and do something fast furious at the amazing Foxlake Adventures near Dunbar.

This is off-road Triathlon like you’ve never seen before with added social distancing measures to ensure we keep competitors, staff, volunteers and the local community safe!

The course will be short – we’re aiming for winning times of around 40-45 minutes. Yep, that’s for the whole lot….. Swim, Bike and Run. Take it as fast or as easy as you like – on the rivet, or in the comfort zone. Either way, this will be fun.

The course will be:

– approx 200m Open Water Swim (don’t worry, the lake is shallow, so will be warm enough)

– approx 4km Mountain Bike (nothing wildy technical, but will be tricky enough to catch you out if you hit it hard!).

– approx 2km Trail Run.


7am – Car Park Opens

7am – 8:15am – Race Registration @ Foxlake

08:30am – Race Start (possibly split into several small waves, possibly individual ‘time trial’ start for social distancing purposes)

09:00am – First Finisher

10:00am – Last Finisher

Approx 200metres in the beautiful private freshwater Foxlake Adventures Wakeboard park. Open Water, deep water start. Wetsuits probably compulsory – bring them just in case.

The lake is clean and spring-fed. It’s shallow for most of the course, so is great for newbies and less confident swimmers – it’s designed to be a safe environment for watersports.

Approx 4km.

You’ll need a mountain bike, a decent hybrid with knobbly tyres, or maybe even a cyclocross bike. Don’t worry if what you’ve got isn’t ‘fancy’ – you’ll be fine.  The course isn’t too technical and uses great tracks and trails in the surrounding woodlands. Helmets will be compulsory though, and you’ll need two working brakes.

Not far. Maybe 2km or so.

You’ll be back on the winding trails in the forest, and also some of the lumpy grassy stuff surrounding the lake, before you emerge at the Finish Line.

SOLO: £30
