About the event

Returning for a 6th year, on Saturday 17th June 2017, Bolton Council’s Get Active Team are organising the NHS Fun Triathlon. Bolton Council and NHS employees from across the country are invited to take part in the NHS Fun Triathlon by swimming 400m, cycling 16k and running 5k, either as a part of a relay team or as an individual.  This year also sees the addition of an invite only race for Bolton’s local triathlon clubs.

Most people can swim, ride a bike or run a short distance and by encouraging teams of 3 to complete the event as a relay team, triathlon can become easily accessible to individuals who previously would never consider taking part.

Everyone can play a part –whether as a supporter, helper, relay team member or individual athlete. The event will predominantly focus on relay teams of three people but will also be open to individuals and play host to the annual NHS National Championships for the more competitive triathletes.

We hope you choose to take the challenge and experience the sense of achievement of completing a triathlon.
