We are proud to announce the unique Arundel Triathlon will be one of the qualifiers for the 2017 ITU Standard Distance Triathlon Championships. The event is now its 4th year and has received rave reviews, so why not come and enjoy the adventure in this beautiful area. The iconic market town has a medieval castle and many other attractions set in the South Downs National Park, for a great racing experience.
The River Arun flows through the town for a fast swim, followed by a one lap cycle over the South Downs before descending into the historic town of Arundel. A stunning two lap run past Swanbourne Lake and through a closed road circuit in the town sees you finish back in the shadow of the castle.
