Emberton Country Park, Olney MK46 5DB

2017 sees the return of The Cowman middle distance race to the Emberton Sailing Club in Emberton Country Park. The Cowman is our flagship middle distance event held annually since 2003. We introduced a sprint distance in 2014 so everyone would be able to take part in this iconic event.

Our courses for 2017 have now been confirmed which features a new bike course which extends our old course out towards Great Houghton and back. This is 1 loop for the Calfman and 2 loops for Cowman at 46km per loop.

For 2017 this becomes our Calfman race which will be half the distance of the Cowman, slightly longer overall than a standard distance triathlon.   Both distances can be tackled as an individual or as a relay team of two or three, with prizes across the board for individual age groups and teams.

Set in the Emberton Country Park, the race kicks off at the Emberton Sailing clubs with a swim in the lake before heading out from Olney visiting Yardley Hastings, Denton, Horton, Stoke Goldington and Newport Pagnell. The run course is around the lake featuring both on and off-road sections.


The courses from 2016 for the Cowman and Sprint Race, these will be changing slightly to accommodate the new Calfman distance
