    I do prefer open water events rather than the pool, as it's a lot more civilised swim

    Will look in the BTA web site

    may look at little beaver or rother valley which are slightly earlier , but may jump right in and do the olympic from straight off.

    Never done one before as last season was my first and only did sprint 750 swim/ 25 k bike and 5 k run

    but would like a early season blow out.

    Off to spain in late april for a 10 day training camp and back early may

    Stratford 220 Triathlon 10th May. It's a pool-based event but ticks 2 of your boxes and is a well run event.

    Not too far from where you want to be I think ... Mallory Park Triathlon May 4th - I have already entered for this as my First ever triathon.
