Bloodwise Blenheim Palace Triathlon

3rd - 4th June

This hugely popular sporting event welcomes thousands of competitors and spectators every year to the stunning surroundings of Blenheim Palace. 

Starting with a swim in the Great Lake, the competitors then enter the 'transition' area in the Great Court where they collect their bikes for the cycling section around the Park. The bikes are then returned to the Great Court and their run begins around the Queen Pool with the finish on the road leading away from the Palace.

The course is alongside the competitors' village where you will be able to find food and further amenities.

Please note: There will be limited changing facilities in the marquee in the East Courtyard. There are no shower facilities on site. Competitors should not change in the Palace toilets. Children must be in posession of a bicycle, bicycle helmet and running shoes to take part.
