Henley Highwayman brings triathlon to Berkshire again

Henley is back on the triathlon map with the launch of the Henley Highwayman, an inaugural multisport event happening on June 5 to 7. Organisers touted a brand new format in which competitors can mix and match distances according to their abilities – and promised there will be no road closures this time around.


Henley was home to the Challenge UK triathlon from 2011 to 2013, until race organisers moved the event to Weymouth in 2014.

While Challenge Henley had grown in participation over its three years, Just Racing UK had also faced criticism from the local community, including Henley’s MP and mayor, for road closures that lasted up to 12 hours.
