Taking part in the annual 70.3 Iron Man Race at Wimbleball Lake?

Welcome to IronMan camping at Wimbleball 2017!

We’ve been listening to feedback from campers and have implemented the following improvements for your stay:

  • Facilities – we currently have a planning application in for a new shower, toilet and camping reception block on the main campsite which should greatly improve facilities for you
  • Pitch sizes – we will be offering two different pitch sizes – Premium (8m x 8m) and standard (5.5m x 5.5m), we recommend a standard pitch as being suitable for a 2 or 3 person tent with parking for 1 car. A premium pitch should be suitable in size for a motorhome, or a 4-5 person tent and 1 car. If you have more space requirements than these recommendations, please book more pitches!

Why not come and train at Wimbleball in advance of competing to familiarise with yourself and the bike and run route? You can book onto our campsite at other times by following this link:

We look forward to seeing you in June
