Overview

Cotswold Classic is run on the same Middle Distance course as the June Dated Cotswold 113.

Set in the Heart of the Picturesque Cotswolds, the Swim is a one lap 1.9km in the well known lake 32 based in the centre of the Ashton Keynes water park.

The 56 mile bike section leaves the water park and heads out the area on a flat and fast course into some of the Cotswolds most beautiful and quiet villages. The route is two laps, and the most outbound point is based at the top of the only real hill on the course – Neils hill in Hannington Wick.

With the event being held in the water park, then the athletes will be treated to a mixture of tarmac and hard pack pathing for the 13miles run that takes in lake side paths as well as local village routes before finishing back next to the lakeside transition in the finishers area.

Both the bike and the run are virtually pancake flat in profile, so this race will suit either athletes new to the distance or more experienced racers looking to hammer a new Middle distance PB.

What a fantastically well run event the Cotswold Classic was.  Graeme, the organiser, kept us so well informed with his lengthy emails in the run up on how the event was lively to change due to COVID-19 (no spectators on site, reduced aid stations on the bike, staggered rath...Read full review
