Mouth of the Tyne Aquathlon
Set in the shadow of Tynemouth Priory, the Mouth of the Tyne Aquathlon is a new event in the North East Multi-Sport calendar, but one which will surely take its place on many people's 'to do' list, due to its iconic setting.
Participants will start on the beach at Tynemouth Haven and complete two laps of a swim course in the mouth of the Tyne, including an Australian style exit and re-entry after the first lap. From there they will run past Collingwood Monument towards the redevelopments of North Shields Fish Quay. They will then return along the riverside promenade, past the start, and run along the North pier with the North Sea at their sides. On completing their run to and from the pier all participants will finish once again with the Priory looking down on them.
Swim 750m, Run 5 km
