Organiser's Description

--- PROVISIONAL DATE - RESCHEDULED FROM SEPTEMBER 2020 ---

The Cheshire Triathlon is set in Nantwich, Cheshire and has been enjoyed by thousands of competitors for 26 years now. The event is aimed at all abilities and fitness levels, from complete novice to club and pro triathlete, as well as charity and fun competitors. The course is spectator friendly for supporting family or friends and a fun and relaxed atmosphere is guaranteed. There will be attractions and facilities available at the park for the triathlon including hot and cold food, refreshments, toilets, a play area with swings and slides that all make for a great day out for the family!

Also, we want to encourage more women to have a go so UK Triathlon has dedicated a section of this event solely to the Pink Wave, a women only pool start and will donate £10 from every Pink Wave entry to Cancer Research UK. Any age, any ability, just get together for the camaraderie and the challenge, whilst raising vital funds for research into beating cancer.

This event is the rescheduled event from 17th May/19 July due to ongoing concerns regarding Coronavirus. The race organiser will be in touch with you in due course if you have made a booking for this event.
