Ashington Triathlon is now in its 6th year and continues to grow every year, always selling out well before the event - enter early to avoid disappointment. The event is based in what was the mining town of Ashington, proud to have had the achievement of once being the biggest mining village in Europe.
The Ashington Triathlon is an ideal start to your 2014 triathlon season and it is shaping up again to be another successful and enjoyable event attracting a wide range of competitors from all abilities, especially beginners. In the last 5 years a third of the competitors were beginners and many competitors came from our successful 'Try a Tri' programme which we run in January through to April. The event is equally attractive to seasoned competitors, with a 400yd or 16 length pool swim in Ashington Leisure Centre followed by a 2.5 lap 20km 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.
Please note that there will be no entries on the day. Please refer to the Event Terms and Conditions page for details on withdrawals, deferrals and transfers.
