The Big Cow Cowman will host the Triathlon England – National Middle Distance Triathlon Championship on Sunday 14 July 2013 and entries are still available for Triathlon England members.
The Big Cow Cowman is Triathlon England’s first ever middle distance National Championship and is the third in seven races that make up the 2013 Triathlon England – National Championships. Triathlon England members looking to take part in this prestigious event are being encouraged to get their entry in as places in these events are selling fast. (The Triathlon England – National Standard Distance Triathlon Championships has already sold out.)
The Big Cow Cowman represents the third opportunity for Triathlon England members to be crowned National Champion and will take place in the scenic surrounds of Emberton Country Park near Olney, Buckinghamshire. The well respected course starts with a 1.9K swim on the country park’s picturesque boating lake, followed by an undulating bike and run through the mixed terrain surrounding the park.
After the Big Cow Cowman the next Triathlon England – National Championship event will be the sprint distance race at Blithfield Triathlon on 4 August.
Nigel Woods of Big Cow events said “Big Cow are delighted to be hosting the Triathlon England – National Middle Distance Championships for 2013. The Cowman has become synonymous with Championship races in recent years and the Big Cow crew will, as always, encourage and support everyone taking part. The Big Cow atmosphere ensures that everyone racing or supporting will have a great day out.”
Duncan Hough, Triathlon England Director for Events, Rules and Technical added, “It’s really exciting to be running our first ever Triathlon England – National Middle Distance Triathlon Championships at the Big Cow Cowman this year. Last month we got off to a great start in Cambridge and I am sure the Big Cow Cowman will help make 2013 the best year yet for our members. Get your entry in soon, before entries close!”
