Ashington Triathlon 2017

An ever popular early-season triathlon where Brexit has not inflated our prices — no price change for the last 2 years and, yes, still a FREE T-shirt for each competitor so don’t delay in entering. This event attracts a wide range of competitors from all abilities, especially beginners who made up 45% of entries last year.

Following last year’s success and to encourage more athletes to triathlon we are pleased to include 20 places for relay teams. If you’ve wanted to be part of a triathlon but not happy in one of the disciplines this is your opportunity: get together with a group of friends or colleagues, form a team and join in.
