Chester Deva Olympic & Half Triathlon

14 June @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Deva Triathlon is an Olympic distance triathlon held in the centre of the historic City of Chester. It is currently in its 24th Year and is run by Chester Triathlon Club members.

Take a look at our TV Programme show on Channel 4 from 2015 here.

 

In 2020 we will again race the same course that we have had since 2013 and will also retain the Deva Middle Distance race first held in 2016.  We have had so many fantastic comments about the course being located right in the heart of the City.  Transition is in the fabulous Grosvenor Park, a fantastic Victorian Park.  The bike route will be a single lap (2 laps for the middle distance) into Wales via Eccleston, Rossett and Borras and back into Chester via Alford and Boughton.  The run route will incorporate running over the Old Dee Bridge as well as the suspension bridge, along the Groves and in the meadows with the finish being at the Bandstand, a truly City Centre race.

 

Please make sure you have read the British Triathlon Federation Rulebook.

 

Deva Middle Distance Triathlon

2020 will be the fith year we host our Deva Middle Distance triathlon first held in 2016.  Run alongside the Standard distance race, the swim incorporates a rolling start and continues up river to make the distance 1900m, the bike route will be 2 laps of the course into Wales via Eccleston, Rossett and Borras and back into Chester via Alford and Boughton.  The run route will be 3 laps, and like the Standard race will incorporate running over the Old Dee Bridge as well as the suspension bridge, along the Groves and adding an extended section around the meadows to bring the distance to 13.1 miles. The finish will rejoin the standard race at the Bandstand.
