https://www.eventrac.co.uk/listed-races/the-hillingdon-triathlon

Please get your entries in before the closing date as late entries create significantly more work for our already overstretched volunteers

Hillingdon Outdoor Activity Centre (HOAC), Harefield - Start 07:30

Voted Triathlon England (London Region) Club Event of the Year in 2015, the Hillingdon Triathlons are most probably the longest running triathlon series in the country and with HS2 construction on the site confirmed to start at the end of this year this is likely to be the last series ever held here

750m lake swim - 6k run (mainly road but the last 1k is off road) - 25k bike (2 laps, hilly)

If you do not want to complete the whole race yourself then you may enter as a relay team with one or two other people or enter the Duathlon to avoid the swim

Club members, please note that this is part of the Hillingdon Club Championships in which you score points in all of the race series

Originally run as an evening series, they were changed to Sunday mornings, mainly because more competitors were finding it difficult to get to the event on time

As the event became more popular, drafting became a problem, the hilly cycle was not breaking packs up and the swim was too short to spread competitors out

In order to overcome this it was decided to do the run as the second discipline, this allows time for gaps to develop and gives the event a different feel to other triathlons
