Marlow Classic 70.3

Past results: This will be my first attempt at the Marlow Classic Middle distance. And my third one for a middle distance, aka 70.3. In August 2017 I’ve clocked 5 hours 35 minutes and 9 seconds at The Gauntlet in Chantilly. A stunning event from Castle Triathlon Series. In June 2019, I completed my first IronMan 70.3 in Les Sables d’Olonne, France, in 5 hours 11 minutes, and 53 seconds. With my fastest swim ever, just over 30 minutes. Now, back to Marlow. In June 2018, I took part in the Sprint distance finishing 4th in my age category, 8th male, and 9th overall.

Event link

The Marlow Classic Middle Distance Triathlon is the only long distance event in the Thames Valley. a fairly flat scenic course taking in the views of Marlow and the surrounding areas.

The event is set to attract over 700 participants, as the world of endurance sports and triathlon creates massive demand for longer distance events over the shorter distances that have originally formed this great sport.

The swim is a 1900 metre one lap course in the River Thames and is designed to make even the weakest swimmer get a fast swim split.

The Bike course is 85.6km with a very popular 3 Lap course on the far end of the route.

The Run is 4 laps of 5km route on Tarmac and Grass Footpaths and meanders back towards Marlow and into the finish at Higginson Park from the river tow path.
