New Venues Secured for Immortal Sport
After firmly establishing ourselves with our triathlons at Stourhead National Trust estate in Wiltshire the team at Immortal Sport have been keen to increase their offering of triathlons to other destinations in the Southwest.
After careful consideration and much research we are really delighted to be partnering with South West Lakes and bringing two new and exciting weekends of multisport to Wimbleball Lake on Exmoor and Roadford Lake on Dartmoor.
Roadford Lake, Dartmoor
Roadford Lake is situated on the edge of Dartmoor National Park in the stunning surroundings of the Wolf Valley, with a range of natural habitats on its shores from Culm Grasslands, woodlands, old pastures and orchards. The lake itself is 760 acres including a dedicated nature reserve, it is also the largest body of water in the region holding 34,500 mega-litres of water when full.
The venue benefits from a full outdoor activity centre offering activities both on and off the water, a campsite and a café / conference centre – everything an active family need to keep entertained and enjoy the beautiful environment. Please see below for a list of all the facilities and activities available at Roadford Lake. Located between Launceston and Okehampton and just 2 miles from the A30, the site is easy to get to and access is good enabling campervans and caravans into the campsite.
Roadford Lake has played host to a number of sporting events over the last decade, from sailing regattas, triathlons and corporate challenges. We are really pleased to be working with South West Lakes to host this event and encourage all entrants to bring family and friends, camps on site and make the most of this fantastic 3 day event!
