Basin Pond confirmed for 2019

For the third year running, we are pleased to announce that the Basin Pond has met EU bathing standards, allowing us to use the larger lake for this year’s event.


In the run up to the event, every measure has been taken to ensure the water quality meets all EU bathing standard. Basin Pond is the ideal lake for the event as it allows participants to compete with the iconic Abbey backdrop and is also a short walk from transition, reducing participant’s T1 time. Additionally, the participants will only need to complete the following laps:

WoBurner – 3 laps of Basin Pond

Olympic – 2 laps of Basin Pond

Sprint – 1 lap of Basin Pond


The route will be marked out by buoys however, we ask participants to familiarise themselves with the route maps in the Event Guide before taking to the course.
