Organiser's Description

This event comprises children's, junior, sprint and middle (Half Iron) distance triathlons, held in the shadow of the mighty Bamburgh Castle. The races will all start with a sea swim, then an out and back bike leg followed by a beach run on hard sand for the sprint, and new bike and run routes entirely at Bamburgh Castle for the middle distance event.
