The Fugitive Triathlon arrives in 2017! This inaugural event will be taking place in the beautiful town of Marlow and is set to be a popular event in the 2017 Triathlon calendar. Are you a Fugitive? The Fugitive Triathlon gives you the chance to make a run for it and escape, racing only against the clock to see if you will get caught before its too late. With only the fastest over the line, before the cut off, only becoming free to runaway with a bespoke finishers medal and the honour of being from captivity. The Swim course is in the River Thames. It is designed to make even the weakest swimmer get a fast swim split. The Bike course for the Olympic Distance is 37km and is undulating, but otherwise it is flat and fast. The Sprint Distance bike course is 24.5km - It is out and back and only has two hill, but again is otherwise fast and flat.

The Sprint Distance is just a 1 Lap 5km route.
