A female triathlete competes in the Blenheim Palace Triathlon to raise money for Bloodwise, the blood cancer research charity

Tri to beat blood cancer

The Bloodwise Blenheim Palace Triathlon takes place at the ancestral home of the Churchill family, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The 18th-century palace is surrounded by landscaped gardens and makes for a memorable setting for a varied sporting challenge.

Triathletes will swim in the Great Lake, cycle around the Oxfordshire countryside and finally run around the palace itself.

The triathlon is split into three different race types, making it perfect for participants of a range of different ability and experience, from first-timers to seasoned triathletes.

Distances

  • Super Sprint: swim 400m; cycle 13.2km; run 2.9km
  • Sprint: swim 750m; cycle 19.8km; run 5.4km
  • Sprint Team Relay: same distance as sprint, but with three team members

Entry fees

  • Super Sprint: £50
  • Sprint: £60
  • Sprint Team Relay: £120

Minimum fundraising target

Your entry fee only covers the cost of the event. We ask all charity entrants to raise at least £350.
