Looking ahead to the 2016 Forca Lymington Lido Triathlon

With spring and summer well and truly on their way, many of us are planning for the sports events we wish to participate in during the 2016 season. One of the first and most popular on the calendar is the Forca Lymington Lido Triathlon on the 1st of May.

This triathlon starts at Lymington Sea Water Baths, and features a 500m swim, 20km cycle route and 5km traffic free run. The lengths of each of the three events have been chosen so that the widest range of people can participate. For amateur enthusiasts, these lengths provide a tough yet achievable challenge for them to test their abilities. The more experienced triathlete may well find the course a bit easier than most, but nonetheless they will draw some useful practise for the more gruelling triathlons ahead of them.

One of the most important benefits of the Lymington Lido Triathlon is that it also helps to support local charity Forca, which strives to raise awareness and funds for members of the community affected by cancer. This cause is close to the hearts of many, and all participants can feel proud that they are making a positive contribution.

If you’re planning to attend this event, our bed and breakfast in Lymington will offer you the ideal solution for accommodation, located just four miles away from the starting point of the triathlon. While the triathlon attracts entrants from far and wide, we know many local participants will be looking for a relaxing and comforting treat after the race is over. A stay with us will give you exactly that, so you can relax and recover.

The Forca Lymington Lido Triathlon is a fantastic way to get into the swing of outdoor sports, health and fitness for 2016. It is also a way to explore and experience the beauty of the area. Of the three events, the cycle section in particular will be extra special, as it will give you a glimpse of the natural beauty which the New Forest has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you to experience and enjoy it yourself.
