3D Tri

The home of BRAT Triathlon


After a successful 2014, 3D Tri events are proud to once again host BRAT Triathlons during 2015. This year we have an early season pool sprint in Lichfield and our award winning Sprint and Standard Triathlon at the West Midlands Water Ski Centre.

All our events are designed for competitors of all standards, from the seasoned professional to the nervous first-timer, and their supporters at our events. We are very proud to have received fantastic feedback from our competitors during 2014 and are sure you will have a great day at our events.

Our open water events will once again be based at the picturesque West Midlands Water Ski Centre – just a few miles north of Birmingham city centre. This dedicated water sports resort nestles alongside the Middleton Lakes RSPB Wild Life Reserve and the River Tame – offering one of the highest water quality ratings of any open water swim venue in the UK.

The wind-sheltered lake offers a calm and safe swim for the beginner but fast opportunities for more seasoned triathletes whilst the mostly flat and fast bike course works its way around Kingsbury Water Park – taking in much of the scenic North Warwickshire Cycle Way.Finally, the run will comprise breathtaking laps around the water’s edge with all athletes enjoying stunning views along ‘Pike’s Ridge’ to the finish line.

Our pool event is based at the Friary Grange Leisure Centre in Lichfield. This is a sprint triathlon that’s ideal for beginners as well as the more experienced triathlete looking to set a fast time. The Bike course takes you out and back on flat, quiet roads through scenic Staffordshire villages with thatch cottages and village squares, and returns within sight of the famous 3 spires of Lichfield Cathedral.

The Run is within the closed grounds of Friary Grange, again within sight of the 3 Spires of the Cathedral and involves laps, so is an ideal course for your family and friends to spectate and cheer you on. It is flat and mainly on grass, so again perfect for the novice or the experienced athlete looking for a pb.
