British Triathlon has announced that the British Aquathlon Championships will take place at the tried and tested Salford Quays Water Sports Centre on the evening of Saturday 17 July.
Manchester Triathlon Club, on behalf of British Triathlon, is promoting the event with entries now available from www.man-tri-club.org.uk.
Located adjacent to the internationally recognised Salford Quays ITU Triathlon World Cup and Commonwealth Games triathlon course, it’s an ideal location to host this prestigious event.
Salford Quays has played host to regular aquathlon events over the years and its two-lap swim and fast run course, always proves popular with those that take part.
If you plan to make a weekend of it, the former docks have been re-developed and the area is now a pleasant part of Manchester with plenty to see and do. There is a wealth of world-class entertainment, leisure and cultural facilities on offer including The Lowry, Imperial War Museum North and The Lowry Outlet Mall.
