WIN entry to Ashington Triathlon

An ever popular early-season triathlon, organised entirely by volunteers from Tri Northumberland Triathlon club and winner of the BTF North East Region Club Event of the Year 2018, returns for another year.

This event attracts a wide range of competitors from all abilities, especially those who are new to triathlon, and yes, a FREE T-shirt for each competitor so don’t delay in entering.

Ashington Triathlon, continue to encourage more athletes to triathlon by offering individual places as well as a non-competitive event through a team relay. 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 and have great fun.

Hosted in the once famous mining town of Ashington, based at Active Northumberland's flagship leisure centre, Ashington Leisure Centre.

A 400 metre pool swim sets you on your way, followed by a 24.5k bike route out of the town taking in the villages of Bothal (including a single ascent of Bothal Bank), Pegswood and Longhirst before returning to Ashington with some good long quiet straights to get low on the bars and hit top speed. The picturesque shelter of Ashington Woods will protect you from whatever the weather gods throw at you for your 5km run.

Active Northumberland, as one of the sponsors of the event, are delighted to offer a number of free places to compete in the individual competition. To be in with a chance of winning a free entry place, complete the form below with your details including a few reasons why you want the place up for grabs.
