ABOUT RACESTRONG AQUATHON SERIES
Come and enjoy a great evening of racing and socialising at the scenic Papercourt Sailing Club with the Racestrong Club Aquathon Series.
Located at Papercourt Sailing Club in Ripley, Surrey the Racestrong Aquathon is a series of sprint distance equations consisting of a 750m open water swim and a 5km trail run. We also have a novice distance consisting a 200m swim and a 2.7km Run.
This Aquathon series is a great opportunity for local athletes to race and socialise on a Friday night in a well equipped, spectator friendly environment.
The races on all three dates are identical so it’s a great way to compare your times for each race and see how your fitness improves. Athletes of all abilities are welcome and we really hope you’ll come along for an evening of fun and friendly racing.
Post race there are showers and refreshments available within the club house with the bar open post race until 10.30.
Fullsteam Events runs the Club Aquathon series on behalf of Racestrong Triathlon Club with all profit goes directly to club funds. Funds are used by club to pay towards venue hire, club kit and coaching.
OPEN WATER SWIM
The swim takes place in the Papercourt Sailing Clubs lake.
This open water swim features a small deep water start racing out to two turn buoys before returning back and exiting the water via the entry slip.
Its then just a short run to transition where you will start your run.
The course shown below is the 750m swim course.
Straight from transition you will head out through the car park and onto the trails surrounding the sailing club.
We’ve designed a flat picturesque 2 lap course around the grounds of the sailing club taking in a mixture of terrains.
