Fatstock  Fatstock09The fantastic Fatstock Show!

Champion pigs, sheep and cattle are primped and preened for this event held in the Market Square. Rutland farmers proudly showed off the best of their stock with the aim of encouraging people to buy British and support the industry.

Taking place on Wednesday morning on Uppingham Market Place, there will be pens full of livestock arriving at 7am, judging comences at 10am and the prize-giving will be at 11.30am.

Cancelled only by war and the two national out-breaks of the foot and mouth epidemic this is a unique show being the only event of its kind in the UK still held in temporary penning in a town market square. The regular weekly fatstock market finished in 1954, with the ending of wartime controls, but the annual Fatstock Show has continued and remains one of the most prestigious events in the town’s calendar and is without a doubt “a jewel in Rutland’s crown”. The show includes classes for cattle, sheep and pigs.

Vitruvian Triathlon

Event Start Date:

Event End Date:

Event Venue:
Rutland Water

vitruvian-2009-01

Established in 2003, the Vitruvian started from humble beginnings and less than 250 starters in its first year. Since then the Vitruvian has grown into one of the most respected and iconic races on the UK calendar.

Voted the UK’s event of the year in 2007, 2008 and 2009 by the 220 Triathlon magazine awards the Vitruvian now sees 1000 competitors race annually and is significantly oversubscribed year on year so you need to get in early if you want a slot.

With a two lap 1900m swim in front of highly enthusiastic crowds the race starts as it means to go on and the double lap bike course covering 85km in total is not for the fain hearted. With the 21km run to finish it off the Vitruvian is a true test of endurance.

With similar distance races often referred to as half Ironman or middle distance it can be misleading to equate the Vitruvian to other events. There is nothing half or middling about the Vitruvian. This is a full on triathlon and only if you finish it you can call yourself a Vitruvian.
