Triathlon X; Right in our Back Garden

By Wateredge Inn

There’s never a dull moment in the Lakes, as part of the Festival Of The Fells, Ambleside hosted the Triathlon X’s Half X: ‘The world's toughest half iron distance triathlon’.

The turnout for the Half X was fantastic, we even joined our lovely guests in the garden to cheer on! We had prime viewing right in our back garden. The participants had to swim an impressive 1.9km (1.2 miles) in Lake Windermere followed by a tough bike ride of 90km (56 miles). And that’s not it yet: to top it all off, they then had to run another 21km (13 miles) up in the fells!

After an incredibly grueling day of swimming, cycling, running and a spot of spectating on our behalf, the overall winner was Alex Lawton! A huge congratulations to everyone who entered, completing a triathlon is a huge feat.

We’re lucky to live in such a community-driven area, Ambleside may be small, but there’s always something going on in this beautiful countryside town…
