DON’T MISS OUT ON THE TEESDALE TRIATHLON
Everyone’s looking forward to a great race at Barnard Castle on Sunday September 18 when we stage the ever-popular Teesdale Sprint Triathlon.
Don’t miss out on the chance to test yourself against a stunning backdrop of rolling hills and beautiful countryside. Book your place now for what promises to be a fantastic day.
Year by year, a third of the field are new to triathlon, so if you are planning to sample multi-sport for the first time, this is the event for you.
We start with a 400m pool swim at Teesdale Leisure Centre, followed by an 18-mile bike over the surrounding hills and finishing with a three-mile bike over an off-road course.
Our friendly marshals will be there to cheer you on and give you your goody bag at the end.

TEESDALE TRIATHLON ANOTHER BIG SUCCESS
Great to see club members doing so well at our club race, the Teesdale Triathlon, with several tackling the event for the first time.
We had another full entry list for this popular triathlon, with Race Organiser Brian making sure everything ran like clockwork.
Tom followed up from a strong race at Helvellyn to finish 11th overall in a time of 1:22:21. Zoe was thrilled to get in the age-group prizes with 71st place overall and a time of 1:41:38.
Jason H was another member well up the field, finishing 38th in 1:34:06, and another new member, Mark S, finished a magnificent 20th overall.
Also well done to David, who finished 89th in 1:47:35.
It was also good to see race referee Vicky post a very complimentary report about the event and highlighting its excellent organisation.
