We are delighted to announce details for the 2018 NHS Friends and Family Fun Triathlon taking place on Saturday 16th June. For the second year running our event will be the opening attraction for the annual Horwich Festival Of Racing. The route for this year will remain the same including closed road cycle circuit, 2 lap run course and the traditional finish area in the park, with its usual attractions. One major change is the venue for the swim which will take place at the brand new Horwich Leisure Centre. Once again the race will start at the reasonable time of 3pm.
New for 2018
Since its inception the aim of our event has been to support, encourage and motivate NHS staff to become more active. This year we are excited to announce that we are intending to spread the joy by allowing family and friends to take part in the event either as part of a relay team or as a solo. We are still committed to keeping the event beginner and novice friendly by keeping the distances achievable by all.
Also new for this year is the inclusion of a Open event. This is being run in conjunction with Lostock Athletic Club and is aimed at the more competitive club athlete. This event will see prizes awarded to the best clubs in the area. Entries are limited to 50 competitors and will open Friday 13th April.
