Marlow Triathlons to return this weekend
Created On: 13 July 2012
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.
