This just in from the Ripon Tri organisers…
The Ripon Triathlon is one of the largest Olympic-distance events in the north of England. It's based within the picturesque Ripon racecourse on a Saturday with a relaxed 2pm start!
It’s proud of its reputation as a family friendly event – with activities for the kids (bouncy castles, climbing wall, kids fun run…) and for the adults? A bar!
They also have cheap camping and food both on the Friday and Saturday evening and an after party complete with band.
The course is flat and fast and there are always way more spectators than most of us are used to!
