The 2011 British Triathlon Middle Distance Championships take place on Sunday 3 July 2011, and will see over 750 competitors racing to win the coveted Age Group British Championships at the Cowman Triathlon in Milton Keynes.

The event is the fifth of eight British Championships in 2011 and will see triathletes race in the undulating Buckinghamshire scenery.

The race begins with a 1,900m swim in the boating lake of Emberton Country Park, before a 92km bike course through undulating countryside that will ensure there is little rest for competitors. The final 21km run involves a four-lap course that takes competitors outside of the park.

Nigel Woods, the event organiser is proud to be delivering the British Championships commenting: "As an event organiser it's always great recognition to be awarded a British Championship and shows your events are delivering high quality experiences for the athletes.

"The course in Emberton Country Park is fantastic for spectators, the whole swim being visible from the transition area and the bike and run courses both looping through transition, proving a great opportunity to cheer on your friends and family as they race for the coveted titles."

Ian Braid, British Triathlon Director for  Major Events, is looking forward to the event commenting: "The British Middle Distance Championships are an important part of British Triathlon's Major Events calendar, providing the perfect platform for our Age Group athletes to achieve their personal triathlon challenges. To take part in any of our British Championships is always an exciting occasion for any athlete, and the standard of racing is always extremely high."

The event is being organised by Big Cow Events, with more information available on www.big-cow.com
