Grafman – The Award Winning Middle Distance Triathlon
The Grafman is well established within the triathlon community. Now under the organisation of ActiveTrainingWorld, this event continues to grow in popularity. The race was voted National Event of The year in 2014, selected for the Triathlon England Middle Distance Championships 2015, British Championships 2016 and again English Middle Distance Championships in 2023!
The start, the swim, much of the run and the finish are all conveniently located together, making excellent spectator viewing at Grafham Water Reservoir. The swim takes place in the lake consisting of a two lap course that is easy to navigate; a quick Australian style exit on each lap makes a great spectacle for your family/friends to support you from.
Once you are out of the water you are straight out on your bike. The roads around the villages offer great surfaces for fast riding and only the odd short climb to challenge you. The bike course will be fast, but don’t underestimate it – especially if it’s a windy day!
On returning to Grafham Water, you will conquer the multi-lap course around the edge of the lake comprising of both tarmac and hard compound tracks that offers a feed station every two miles or so and is lined with supporters willing you all the way to the finish line.
And after completing your race, you will be congratulated with a custom event medal. The event will also be chip timed so you will get accurate splits for your race.
There will be live commentary, music and photos as you celebrate your achievements with your friends and family.
As well as the Triathlon, we also offer an Aqua-Bike (swim-bike) option for those who don’t want to run, and a Relay (if you fancy teaming up with others to do a discipline each), so there really is no excuse not to get involved and have a go at Grafman!
