QUALIFICATION EVENT:
ITU STANDARD DISTANCE TRIATHLON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2015
This is an age group qualification event for the World Triathlon Championships 2015

First established in 2002 the Dambuster Triathlon is a well recognised feature of the triathlon calendar in the UK.

If you're intending to use the Dambuster Triathlon to qualify for GB selection, you may be well advised to test yourself out on the same course earlier in the season at the Dambuster Duathlon which uses the same bike and run routes so offering an opportunity familiarise yourself with the course. Perfect preparation as well as a good early season test of your form

"The venue is about as perfect
as can be for triathlon"

The swim which takes place in the Rutland Water Lake is a straight one lap 1500m with no real surprises. A well tried and tested course which starts in front of the Harbour Bar and is a tremendous spectacle for competitors and spectators alike.


The bike -- a slightly long 42km around the spectacular Rutland scenery -- is a good testing course and well suited to strong bikers. Best described as undulating it's sure to sort out the standings. The Rutland Ripple is not the only test of endurance on the course which offers little in the way of flat, but does offer good road surfaces and is a well established and clearly signposted route.


The 10km plus run navigates around the lake and across the dam after which it is named, but don't be deceived by the flatness of the run section which does a double loop of the Dam. The fact that you can see the competition for much of the run means this is a psychologically challenging course.
