The City of York Triathlon returns to York Sport Village and the 2017 UK Triathlon Race Series for the fourth year running.
A new and improved bike course is planned for 2017 with resurfacing planned for July 2016, more information to follow.
This joint initiative with York Sport has inspired entrants of all abilities to take on the challenge of swim, bike and run in and around The University of York & York Sport Village over the last 3 years and looks set to become a huge event on the York sporting calendar. With 2 distances to choose from and the option to enter as an individual or relay team of three, the triathlon starts with a swim in the heated indoor pool, follows on with a flat multi-lapped bike course and finishes with a run. This spectator friendly venue is perfect for crowds to cheer on competitors and create a fun & relaxed atmosphere so, whether participating or supporting, get colleagues, friends and family involved and be a part of this exciting new event.
