Is anyone doing this this year? Or has anyone done it before? Any info would be good as I don't know the area at all and have entered the Oly in Sept!

    Funnily enough I pulled my Tatton t-shirt out of the cupboard today for my commute!

    Did the OD last year and loved it! Beautiful location. The bike is pretty flat with a few rolling bits, and the run is more cross country with some wooded sections which took me by surprise when I turned up as I didn't expect it. Great fun though. Loads of places to view for spectators as well.

    Great event all round. You'll love it.

    Im also thinking of doing the oly.

    I've heard that it's a great place for supporters to come and watch.

    Nearly £70 for the oly. Is expensive.

    Will be my last tri in my first year so maybe splash out.

    Wanted to do Bala Standard the week before but can't because of a family event.

    £67.50 for an Oly is very expensive, and no reduction for BTF members. But I have heard really good feedback about it so I will give it a go.

    Yes expensive I know but it's my only big tri this year that I really wanted to do and wasn't booked up by the time I could afford it. Then onto the Eden Project Marathon in October eeekkk... Thanks for the info- sounds perfect as nice bike and I love cross country compared to road running so all good. Hopefully we can arrange a 220/BCTTT meet-up for those also attending? Oh yeah, is it river or lake swim?

    Lake swim, one lap. Remember it being shallow for quite a way near the exit so worth swimming as far as you can I'd say rather than trying to run in the shallow bit.

    You'll have a great day!

    I'm also doing tatton oly this year, first time.
    watched friend do it last year, looked a good one to do, great for spectators. course seemed quite a fast one judging by my friends times

    Just a note... bike course was definitely short. Think it was advertised at 38km and clocked it at about 36km I think.

    Well looks like a picked a nice one then. Lake swim is extra good especially now I'm used to more sea swimming! Cheers for the info!

    think the bike leg is actually 36.5
    I did a couple of laps round it the other day, I think they have mapped it from the start of transition back into transition and just times it by 4, if that makes sense
