Run route map available

We think this years run course is a classic! After leaving the transition area competitors will turn left onto Chapletown Road. They will continue on this rather undulating road running on the left hand side pavement. After 2.3km competitors will cross the road by the pillbox and descend into Jumbles Country Park. There is a short technical descent which requires athletes to take care. Once this challenging downhill had been conquered then it’s a beautiful run along side the bank of Jumbles reservoir. This lovely trail turn into the quiet residential Grange Road. Competitors will follow this until they reach Bromley Cross railway station. Marshalls will guide competitors across the tracks leaving only the short sprint to the finishing arch within the school grounds.

May club cash back offer

Triathlon clubs are the lifeblood of our sport. They are mostly run by volunteers who give up their free time to support and encourage ordinary people to undertake extraordinary achievements.
In recognition of the fantastic work and contribution that these clubs make, one of our event sponsors Peak XV Tri Coaching are offering cash back to local clubs*

For every club member who enters the triathlon during the month of May Peak XV will refund £3 to their club. It’s that simple.

*To qualify the triathlon clubs must appear on the list of Triathlon England affiliated clubs in the North West area.

2019 event update

The team behind the NHS Triathlon are excited to announce big changes for the 2019 race. Whilst we can’t give too much away at this stage, we can tell you that after every race we collect feedback from competitors to inform and improve the race for the following year.
So for 2019 we have taken all the bits that competitors love including the relaxed atmosphere, fantastic friendly volunteers, sociable start time, great finishing area, and a quality medal and will be running the event from a totally new venue with great parking and a single large transition area.
We listened to the feedback regarding both the bike and run routes and we will be returning to the original distances. The swim will remain a pool based 400m, the new 20k bike course will be on quiet country roads with a few hills to keep things interesting. The new 5k run course that we are planning will be partly off road taking in some of the glorious scenery that the area has to offer!

We are working closely with our partners and will be in a position to confirm the date of the event over the next few days and entries will open in November!

When to register

There will be two opportunities to register for the adult events this years as follows:
