Try on the Tyne

Baltic Square, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear

Organiser's Description

A new event on the stunning Newcastle Gateshead Quayside. A sprint and standard duathlon on the flat and fast banks of the River Tyne, also a 5k and 10k run for all abilities. Kids get to join in the fun too, with a 2k run and a duathlon. A mass start for all events at Baltic Square in Gateshead and finish on the Quayside, crossing the Gateshead Millennium and Swing bridges on completely closed roads. There is something for everyone - those beginning their triathlon journey, the duathlon die-hards, pb chasing runners, and those just looking for a fun and atmospheric event to do with friends and family in a stunning location.

All events are chip timed and all finishers will receive a t-shirt, medal and goody bag.
