The largest body of fresh water in South West England, Roadford Lake doesn't normally permit swimming, so this rare opportunity to swim in the picturesque setting begs to be seized. A professionally organised event with water safety team, alongside the range of distance options ensures that all ability levels are well catered for, from experienced athletes to novices. Camping options at the event offer the chance to stay and enjoy the beautiful rural setting after your event.
This event is part of Roadford Lake Triathlon.
Sportiva Events is doing its best to minimise the environmental impact of this event. Here are a few of their initiatives:
For all events which include a t-shirt, there is the option to plant a tree instead through a partnership with Treesnottees
New paper cups have been sourced to be fully recycled back into high-grade paper.
Lots of competitors are not interested in finishers' medals so they are now optional. A £2 charity donation is made for every medal not selected.
Swim hats are provided for open water swimming events as they help the water safety teams keep track of swimmers. However for all pool events, swim hats are now on request to reduce wastage.
Reusable zip ties are used and all rubbish is sorted for recycling after the event.
At the Burrator 10K running race those who commit to walking or cycling to the event get £5 discount.
