Event Course

Swim Course: 2 x small anticlockwise laps of the lake, keeping the swim buoys on your left. The lake is gravel filtered and approximately 6 metres deep, weed is usually not too much of a problem but during long bouts of hot weather this can appear in pockets. Typically, the temperature at this event is around 19-21°C.



Venue Information

Lake 62 is a privately owned well-kept lake in the Cotswolds. This lake has been unused for many years, keeping it one of the finest. Its size and shape allow for some great spectating at all our events here and provides a base for triathletes wishing to take part in a medium sized event on a flat profile. It’s a compact event site so you can see most of the action without having to walk too far.

We also host training and coaching sessions from this lake, for further information about these days, please see the training page here.
