North West Triathlon 2020

Alderford Lake, Whitchurch
C-19 PLAN
UK Triathlon has provided covid-19 safety information for this event.

Organiser's Description

--- DATE AND LOCATION CHANGED --- Event is now in Alderford on 19/09/2020

Unfortunately due to the restrictions last Friday (31 July), Cheshire East Council have withdrawn the use of their facilities for the Cheshire & North West Triathlons. We have therefore moved the event to Alderford in Whitchurch, just a 15 minute drive from Nantwich.

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.
