Arguably the biggest barrier to entry for a Triathlon is finding the time to compete with the mounting pressures of family life, training programs and a spot of shopping taking it's toll on the two day window for recreation we call the weekend. Fortunately the chaps at Votwo Events & Adventure have created the perfect solution for the weekend warriors amongst us in the form of the USN Dorney Lake Evening Triathlon race series.

The 2012 evening tri program at Dorney comes off the back of a very successful series of events last year with TV presenter and former GB track athlete Ewen Thomas and Formula Ones' Jenson Button participating in the races. It's more than likely a few more celebs will be looking to participate this season, paying testimony to the growing prestige of Votwos' evening Tri series at the official Olympic rowing venue.

Olympic rowing venue? you ask. Why yes, the world-class flat-water and canoeing center in Windsor will be the proud host of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Rowing and Kayak events. This reflects the high standard of facilities and exceptional location of Dorney Lake, veering just 28 miles West of central London the venue is more than accessible to the Southern regions of Blighty.

The evening triathlon is a great addition to the race season for the experienced athlete wanting a midweek short and sharp race to test themselves in a venue that offers natural beauty with modern and stylish architecture. It also proves the perfect space for novices and first timers looking to develop their tri skills for fun in a safe and relaxed evening format. With individual entries at just £45 the series is definitely affordable for the nocturnal athletes on the tri circuit, this price also includes free parking and a USN goody bag filled with nutritional products. 

This year see's the introduction of the 'Vo Max League' at the Dorney Lake Evening Triathlons, where tri clubs can compete in teams over the 3 event race series. For more information on entering a team, get in touch with Tom Hayward
