Event Update –
It is with much dismay that there will be no Pitsford Triathlons this year and possibly not ever in the future.
Anglian water have re-designated their reservoirs as water parks and as such have doubled the fees they charge and are also demanding a percentage of the event turnover. Given that we also pay the Sailing Club to hire their facilities this huge increase is something as a small business we simply cannot afford. We have tried reasoning with them but they are adamant that this is the price we have to pay despite understanding that they will wipe a great local sporting event off the calendar, and denying the Sailing Club and the Country Park much needed revenue.
Based at Pitsford Reservoir and utilising the superb facilities of the Northampton Sailing Club.
Fantastic swim facilities, a terrific bike course on some of the best cycling roads in the county and a run course that takes in the picturesque reservoir trails provides all the ingredients for a special event.
