There is less a week to go until the return of the Maxifuel Marlow Sprint & Olympic Distance Triathlons to the Thames Valley. On Sunday July 15th 2012, over 700 competitors will take part in the events, with many of the registered athletes due to come from in and around the Marlow area itself. And for those that want to make a full weekend of it? The Marlow Classic River Swim takes place the day before, on Saturday July 14th and final preparations are being made to make both events a great showcase for sport in the local area.

Additionally, with the London Olympics only a few weeks away, these events are also a great chance for those who want to find out more about the sports of open water swimming and triathlon. It is the perfect opportunity to discover what our GB athletes will experience at Hyde Park, London this August, putting ourselves in the shoes of the greatest athletes in our sport.

Martyn Edwards, Race Director of F3 Events said, "We are really excited to return to Marlow this weekend, especially in light of the recent success of our inaugural Marlow Half Iron Distance event back in June. We are looking forward to meeting our athletes, and to watch them experience the wonderful surroundings of Marlow and the Thames Valley. The events are the perfect addition to any triathlon/open water swimming calendar, and we still have limited spaces available if anyone fancies a last minute challenge!"

It really is a great opportunity to swim in the River Thames with the backdrop of Marlow town and the beautiful Thames countryside. Higginson Park is completely open to the public and everyone is welcome to come and watch and grab a tea or coffee, whilst the participants take to the River Thames for the swim, and then continue to cycle and run around the Marlow/Henley countryside before finally finishing again in Higginson Park for a much deserved finishers medal.
