The Brownlee Tri will be returning to Harewood House in Leeds on Saturday 26th September 2015 and details of the swim, bike and run route have now been confirmed.

The 2015 Brownlee Tri will build on the success of the 2014 event by introducing a pontoon for the swim. The pontoon will take swimmers out to the deep water for the start of the Brownlee Tri and also provide a ramp to swim onto for exiting the lake. This year's course will also offer a new challenge with a refreshed run route.

Alistair and Jonny Brownlee's hugely popular triathlon will once again offer Sprint and Super Sprint distances for individuals, and a Sprint and Corporate Challenge relay for teams around the spectacular course. In addition, the Brownlee Tri also boasts a packed entertainment village for competitors and spectators to enjoy.

Swim route details

The swim route has been enhanced with the introduction of a pontoon for swim entry and exit. The out-and-back anticlockwise route has a short loop for the super-sprint and a longer loop for the sprint. Swim onto the ramp to leave the water, before a short run on grass to transition.

Bike route details

The bike route is completely traffic-free and remains unchanged from 2014. However, transition has been re-positioned so the push to the bike mount line is no longer up-hill! The bike is a scenic anti-clockwise circuit, passing in front of Harewood House and along the same roads as the Tour de France last year. It is a challenging and fun route, with some climbs and descents! The route is predominantly all within the Estate grounds and passes through the Deer Park with views across Yorkshire's beautiful countryside. It is two laps for super-sprint and four laps for sprint.

Run route details

The run route is new for 2015 and follows the woodland trails that Alistair and Jonny train on. The off-road sprint route passes alongside the waterfalls of Eccup Beck and within earshot of Emmerdale. There are gentle climbs and a steeper descent (the opposite of last year!). The super-sprint route passes along trails and grass paths that provide views back to the House, before re-joining the sprint runners for a dramatic finish in front of Harewood House.
