Entries are now open for the Sefton Community Triathlon which will take place on April 29th 2018.
Sefton Council is working with Epic Events to launch the event which, as well as the triathlon, will also include music, entertainment, stalls and other activities for the family.
Open to both children (aged 8+) and adults, it’s the perfect opportunity for novices to experience their first ever triathlon. The distance for the adult event will be a 200m swim in Crosby pool, a 6km cycle on grass and a 2400m run along the prom. Distances are shorter for children.
Active Sefton has put together a timetable of swim, cycle and run activities taking place throughout the borough to help those who need some extra training support.
The swim section of the event will be held at Crosby Leisure Centre’s swimming pool before athletes complete the cycle course on grass followed by the running element of the race which will take place along the prom.
Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “It’s great to see that sporting events like a triathlon are on offer in Sefton.
“The Sefton Community Triathlon will offer beginners the chance to try their hand at an incredible sporting feat and where better to do it than on our wonderful coast.
“Good luck to all those taking part and most importantly, have fun!”
