On Saturday 30th June 2018 the Bishop’s Castle Tandem Triathlon will be taking place.
There is the usual swim, bike ride and run but there are two bike rides and you share the work with a team member.
This event is open to all abilities and those who are competitive and those who want a leisurely day out or a bit of fun. Teams can dress up in fancy dress and there are prizes for best fancy dress, most pubs visited (maybe my husband and his friends could enter?).
The Triathlon starts with one team member doing a 1km swim at Bishops Castle Leisure Centre pool, then both team members share a 30km bike ride. The second team member then has to complete a 10 km woodland run with both finishing the event on a 5 km Sprint, I assume for the nearest pub.
There is fierce competition for the top places but this event is about inclusivity and if you want to handle round the the pubs and cafes and take in South Shropshire beautiful countryside then you can.
There is an age restriction of over 16 years, and 18 years for the run.
Entrance fee of £60 or £30 each.
