Weymouth Middle Distance 2022 Half Iron (Middle) Distance
26 June @ 7:00 am - 3:30 pm
The WMD event will consist of three separate races, a sprint, a classic and a half iron (Middle) distance triathlon.
With race HQ based at Weymouth College, this is the ideal location for all of the family.
It is close to the Weymouth Sealife Centre and is within 500 meters of the very secure transition area, not to mention the beach. There are plenty of facilities, café, toilets and parking all within a couple of hundred meters of your bike. There is something for everyone at this event whether you are taking part or spectating, this one should be a must for your race diary.
The swim will be an open water affair in the beautiful blue waters of Weymouth Bay.
The rolling cycle course will be a fast one for all three events with the route taking in some breathtaking scenery. The bike route for the Half Iron course will be taking place on mainly long flat’ish (as best we can do in Dorset!) roads.
The run will be a short blast around the Lodmoor nature reserve for the sprint and Classic and just ever so slightly longer for the half.
All three events will have awards for the top three males and females and the top age grouper in each category.
Race mementos will be given to all who finish the race.
