This perennial favourite is held at Woodhorn Museum in the QE2 Country Park which boasts a 16 hectare lake surrounded by developing woodland and open grasslands. Woodhorn Museum is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and has a range of fantastic activities and exhibits for all the family.
We are expecting a ‘sell out’ event attracting a top quality field and a wide range of abilities. It will be fabulous again. If you are a first timer or new to the sport there’s no need to be concerned about entering. We look after everyone regardless and will be with you all the way around the course. It’s fun and accessible for all ages and abilities to take part in, and you can be assured that there will be plenty of other triathletes of a similar ability to you taking part.
The swim will be in the warm shallow freshwater lake. The "undulating" bike route will take you out through Widdrington Village, before sweeping onto the coast road near Druridge Bay and then along to Cresswell village with some breath-taking views along the coast line. The run will be on the footpath that winds its way through the woodland and open grasslands that surround the lake and run passes the Finish at the end of each lap making this ideal for spectators to cheer everyone on to a great finish with a big smile. The Woodhorn Museum triathlon is an ideal Triathlon for individuals and relay teams of all abilities, and you should be guaranteed a great race.
The QE2 Country Park is situated approximately 14 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne and 1 mile north of Ashington and this is our "home" for open water swim training in the summer months.
