Hereford Triathlon 2019, Leominster, Herefordshire.
Herefordshire’s traditional super sprint triathlon has been organised by Hereford Triathlon Club for more than 25 years. It’s an ideal race for beginners and people who are having a go at triathlon for the first time.
We can guarantee you a beautiful course through the Herefordshire countryside, friendly marshals, a simple well-marked route, chip timing and lots of vocal support. Every competitor will receive one of our very special medals featuring a unique design featuring a local landmark.
The race is organised by the members of Hereford Triathlon Club and we aim to make it as relaxed and friendly as possible. Any money that we make gets used to help the club run throughout the year.
You’ll start by swimming 400 metres in the indoor pool before heading to transition next door at the Earl Mortimer College.
The 12 mile bike course is undulating but fast and you’ll head out of town and towards Bromyard on the A44, turning around at the King’s Head Pub in the village of Docklow.
Back to the school and the 3 mile run takes you around the town of Leominster including some of the historic sites before finishing at the school.
An ideal race for beginners, novices and those wanting a super fast sprint.
We’re also offering an Aqua Bike race this year for the first time. You’ll compete the swim and bike sections and your finishing time will be taken as you cross back into transition after your bike.
Entries to the race close a week before – on June 23rd – so please make sure you don’t leave it too late to enter.
A list of start times will be on the club’s website in the days before the event.
The start times are organised by your estimated swim time so please understand that you may not be starting close to your friends if you have different swim times.
On the day you need to have registered and picked up your number at least 45 minutes before your start time. You need to be on poolside 15 minutes before your start time.

Eastnor Castle Mud Bath, Ledbury, Herefordshire.
Eastnor Castle is the home of the Land Rover test centre, over 60 miles of trails wind through the deer park and woodland, which put the vehicles and drivers through the toughest of paces. These man made trenches and troughs exaggerate the natural terrain to give a year round muddy experience, maintained with additional water, these mud pits will be just as lovely in the summer as they would be in the winter!
We will be making the most of the terrain as it lies, picking the muddiest trails the estate has to offer. There will be a few natural obstacles, fallen trees to navigate, gullies to cross and of course, lots of mud to roll in! Between the mud, there are some good hills, but like all our events, everyone is always most welcome to come and take part.
The Race HQ is set up in the fields adjacent to the castle and we will take the route up and around the castle in the opening and closing sections of the course. It is a stunning building with a gorgeous lake sitting beneath it which makes for an amazing setting for this muddy run.
Runners can add a beer and hog roast to their registration for just £5, to soak up the atmosphere and bask in the muddy glory of the race. Spectators can tuck in too for just £8. Veggie, gluten free and soft drink options are all available to select at point of registration. All finishers will take home a big custom medal, specific to the event and year, as well as helping themselves to our buffet of fresh fruit, jelly beans, jaffa cakes and other tasty treats!
The registration fee is £27 for the 10km, with a minimum age of 14. £30 on the day.
The registration fee is £22 for the 6km and there are two categories. Unaccompanied (min age 12) and Adult Accompanied (min age 10). £25 on the day.

On the Day Registrations are £30 for the 10km, £25 for the 6km and £14 for the 2.5km Mini Mud Bath
There is no charge for the accompanying adult, unless they wish to claim a finishers medal at which point we ask they register as well. Maximum ratio of 2 children to 1 adult. Muddy and water sections are deep in places. We suggest adults test the water for depth before children enter the water, there will be dry alternative routes. Children must cross the line with accompanied adult when this is their category or no result will be recorded.
The post race hog roast and beer is just £5 extra per person when you register, or £8 extra if you get it as an add on at the race. Spectator prices are between £5 for food, £6 for food and soft drink and £8 for food and beer.
Distances are approximate and we reserve the right to add on a few metres to find some extra good muddy bits.
We will have a range of caterers selling hot drinks and food, as well as our hog roast and beer tents. We will have toilets, changing tents and bag storage on site. Definitely consider bringing a change of clothes for after the race!
