“Set at the National Water Sports Centre this really is the perfect venue for testing yourself on a perfectly flat course where the tempo is high and the volume is too.
Whether you are an experienced athlete looking for a very fast time over the sprint distance or you are a novice competitor looking for a safe and friendly venue for your first open water triathlon, then the Nottingham Triathlon is perfect for you.
The arena type venue with overlooking grandstand, blaring PA and an atmosphere that sucks you in to racing as the crowd gets to see your every move really makes for raising the pulse and racing beyond what you may believe yourself capable. It’s amazing what a bit of crowd motivation can do.
But don’t think it is just one big laugh, there will be some serious racing on a completely closed course over which your friends and family can see you (and shout at you) for the duration of all three disciplines.
As the event is the British Sprint Championships & an ITU World Sprint qualifier we expect entries to sell quickly so get your entry in!”

Club captain, Melissa has been crowned the European Paratriathlon Champion, claiming gold in Alanya, Turkey this weekend. Melissa and her guide, Nicole Walters, beat the reigning European Champion and fellow GBR athlete Charlotte Ellis, and current World Champion Susana Rodriguez (ESP), to cross the line with a minute lead.
Also racing for GBR was Matthew Casey, who competed in the u19 Male Age-Group Race. Matthew finished in 9th place in his first international race. Well done Matt!
Following a great second place finish at the World Championships in New Zealand’s Auckland last year, Melissa has been training hard in the run up to the European Championships.
“It was a difficult race in temperatures over 30 degrees. We had a really good swim exiting the water first and were able to maintain that lead on the bike and run. All the training throughout the winter in Cornwall has paid off. I can’t believe I’m now European Champion, it feels amazing!”
“I couldn’t have done it without my coach, Allan, who came out to Alanya to support me. Thanks as well to everyone from Gyllyngvase Surf Life Saving + Triathlon Club in Falmouth for your encouragement, as well as my sponsors Blue Seventy, Saucony, Matrix/Tank Cycles, Oliver Hughes Physiotherapy, At Your Pace and Cycle Logic.”
Melissa, who is an ambassador for the Cornwall Sports Partnership, has had a very successful career so far despite only being involved in the sport for a short period, and is starting to dominate on an international stage. Paratriathlon is appearing for the first time in the 2016 Paralympic games in Rio de Janeiro where Melissa has her goals fixed on continuing with her winning ways.
