The Lake Crichton Series is a three-race series utilising the world class, man-made Lake Crichton. Located on Frasers Road, 25 minutes south of Hornby and 2 kilometres south of Dunsandel. Lake Crichton is extremely safe. The lake is no deeper than 1.7m, naturally heated to mid 20 degrees and only about 50 metres wide. It is a most tranquil setting for a multisport event!

The Friday evening series allows for all competitors, young & old, experienced & first timers, to finish their working week with exercise. You can enter individually or in a team.

There are two race distances in both the triathlon and duathlon (detailed below). The triathlon begins with a lake swimming (in water start), followed by a road bike and finished off with an off-road run. The duathlon follows the same bike and run course as the triathlon but has a short run before you get on your bikes.

Ellesmere Excavation & Aggregate are the major sponsor of the Lake Crichton Series.  Sandy, Leanne, Brenna and the rest of the team at Ellesmere Excavtion & Aggregate are amazing supporters of the Selwyn community, so please support them if you need any aggregate or have any excavation needs.
