For almost 25 years, the Windsor Triathlon has been at the very heart of the UK multisporting scene. Starting life as part of the 220 Triathlon Series, the debut race in 1991 welcomed 250 athletes.
If you can, ride the course in the weeks before the race so that you’ll be able to understand its testing profile. The rolling course will take its toll, especially the famous drift road. This undulating section will give you speed but then takes it away, so balance your effort accordingly.

The three laps up to Windsor Castle will hurt, so look to be respectful on the first lap, settle into your natural rhythm on the second lap and then give everything you have for the final lap. But always remember to save a little energy to smile as you run through the finish line for that all-important picture.
