Brightonians! There’s a big new triathlon coming to your neck of the woods next year. The first Brighton and Hove Triathlon will be held in September 2016 with up to 3,000 participants expected.
There’ll be a range of distances and events on offer, including sprint and Olympic distance triathlons, plus a scootathlon for youngsters aged 4-8 to be held the day before.
Transition will be on Hove Lawns just behind the seafront, giving a wide and safe transition zone. There will also be a Sport and Fitness Show held over the same weekend on Hove Lawns, aimed at sport-loving families and fitness enthusiasts.
But back to the triathlon – the event starts with a sea swim from Brighton beach, followed by a closed road looped cycle section along the flat and wide A259 coast road, and ends with a run along Hove Promenade and past the new i360 observation tower due to be completed in 2016.
“The Brighton and Hove Triathlon is set to be one of the most exciting and eagerly anticipated inaugural triathlon in the UK, our aim is to make Brighton an iconic must attend event,” said event director John Lunt.
