Events: Cowman and Calfman Triathlons
Date: 6th August 2017
Location: Emberton Country Park, Milton Keynes

Set in 220 acres of mature unspoilt parkland, Emberton Country Park is the perfect backdrop to the Cowman, one of the best Olympic distance triathlons in the UK.

The Cowman, now in its fourteenth year, was joined by a sprint distance triathlon in 2014, so that different abilities could take part in this iconic event. In 2017 this becomes the Calfman race which will be half the distance of the Cowman, slightly longer overall than a standard distance triathlon. Both distances can be tackled as an individual or as a relay team of two or three, with prizes across the board for individual age groups and teams.

This is a fantastic multisport event for participants and their families with an opportunity to raise money for charity as well as having a fun and rewarding but challenging day out. As a member of Team VICTA, you will you be helping to improve and empower the lives of children and young adults who are blind and partially sighted.

The race kicks off at the Emberton Sailing club with a swim in the lake, Heron Water, before heading out from Olney visiting Yardley Hastings, Denton, Horton, Stoke Goldington and Newport Pagnell. The run course is around the lake featuring both on and off-road sections.
