Bosworth Water Trust lake is a 750m open water swim (1 lap) around the both islands in the main lake. Follow the buoys, keeping them on your left hand side. You will be allowed a warm up before the race starts.
You will enter the water before the start at the marked entry/exit point and be counted in. You will be given a 5-minute time check before the race start, and a 1-minute check before the swim start. You will exit at the marked exit area and follow the route to transition.
Exit transition and the water park (left turn), you are now on the main cycle route. Follow the route marked with yellow direction arrows. There are also safety Marshals at every junction point where you are required to turn. All turns are left turns. If you turn right at any point, you have gone wrong!. Please follow the instructions from the Marshals.
Areas of caution:
Feed station on Bosworth Road in the lay-by next to the Piggery Farm. (Before you turn left onto A444.) Slow down and stop if need to, as the lay-by is a rough surface. On exit look right for on coming traffic.
Turning left onto the A444, you will approach downhill at speed, so follow the Marshals instructions regarding traffic.
Turning left off the A444, you will approach the left turn at speed, slow down to negotiate the left turn.
At Shenton, there is a blind S bend where extreme caution is required, a Marshal will warn you to slow down at this point and take care.
The bridge at Shenton (left turn) is only single file, so be aware of any on coming traffic. Follow the Marshals instructions.
The railway bridge is in a dip and again single file. Follow the Marshals instructions as you approach the bridge.
Market Bosworth centre is a very busy village and extreme care must be taken cycling through this village, please take care and be courteous. There is a FOOT DOWN AND STOP point when entering the village – this must be adhered to and failure to comply may result in disqualification from the race. Please also take care when you turn left at the T junctions.
There is a pedestrian crossing in Station Road, please give way to anyone on the crossing or about to cross. This crossing is not controlled by lights.
The descent to the water park is fast, take care negotiating the bridge and roundabout before approaching the water park.
The run is a simple out and back run.
Run out of transition, along the fence through opening, turn immediately left towards car park barriers, run along the right hand side of the road, through barriers then turn right up Coton Lane and please run on the left hand side with the flow of traffic on to Coton lane. Take caution over the hump back bridge over the canal and with the 90 degree right and then left turn in Far Coton take the first left turn in Far Coton and follow the road to the turn point pick up a band! (1 BAND in total! so we know you have reached turnaround point once) follow the same route back as you run back towards water park, turn left into park by barriers, run on right side of road , go through opening in the fence, back into the field where finish line is , you will be directed toward the finish - follow the taped off lane.
