Ashington Triathlon 2011

Results are available on the Tri Northumberland website: http://www.trinorthumberland.co.uk/2011-events/ashngton-sprint-triathlon

The Ashington Triathlon is now in it's 3rd year and it has proved to be a very popular early season sprint triathlon – So popular that it has "sold out" well in advance of the event date in the last 2yrs. The Ashington Triathlon is an ideal start to your 2011 multi sport season and it is shaping up again to be another sucessful and enjoyable event. Don't wait to enter or you could be disappointed.

The Ashington Triathlon as with all of our events attracts a wide range of competitors from all abilities, especially beginners. In the last 2yrs nearly half of the competitors were beginners and many competitors came from our succesful 'Try a Tri' programme which we run in January through to the Ashington Triathlon. The Ashington Triathlon is based in what was the mining town of Ashington. Ashington is proud to have had the achievement of once being the biggest mining village in Europe.

A 400m or 16 length pool swim in Ashington Leisure Centre followed by a 2.5 lap 20K bike through the beautiful village of Bothal where you will find the famous "Bothal bank" which you will have the pleasure of going up twice ! The rest of the bike course is otherwise flat which gives you the chance to get on the tri bars and power home for the run. The 3 lap run course around the local high school and park makes sure your supporters can see and cheer you to the finishing line.
