Manchester Triathlon Club are looking to celebrate their 21st anniversary in style this year by hosting three events during what will be a bumper July.
First up is the Man Tri Junior Triathlon, at Knutsford Leisure Centre, Cheshire on the afternoon of Sunday July 11.
There’ll be a whole series of races from Tristar Start (from age 8) with a 50m pool swim, 800m bike and 600m run (both on a grass course) and then various age ranges up to a 400m/8k/3k race for Youths (15-16 yr olds).
With an £11 entry fee (£10 BTF) including a memento from the day it’s a great value way to start off in the sport. Could also be the perfect prelude to watching England win the World Cup later that evening!
Next up is the British Aquathlon Championships at Salford Quays on July 17th.
Located adjacent to the internationally recognised Salford Quays ITU World Cup and Commonwealth Games triathlon course, it’s an ideal location to hold 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 on making a weekend of it, the former docks have been completely redeveloped 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 in addition to Manchester’s many other attractions.
North West Sprint Champs, Boundary Water Park, Cheshire, 25 July 2010. The Manchester Boundary Breeze Sprint Triathlon (750m/23km/5km) is a well-established event, great for first timers and an annual favourite with more experienced triathletes. The race is really well organised and friendly and competitors love the lake swim and the flat bike course on good roads.
Set in the beautiful Cheshire countryside just outside Holmes Chapel and Knutsford, there is easy access from motorways. The race takes place mid season that tends to mean good weather and one of the warmest open water swims on the circuit! With the first wave at 10am there is even a civilised start time!
All events are open for entries at www.man-tri-club.org.uk.
