The Bishops Castle Tandem Triathlon route goes through some beautiful Shropshire countryside. One of the committee members came and took part, decided he loved it and now lives here.

Although it is advertised as  non competitive there is apparently fierce competition for top places in all categories. I wonder if they have a “Who Can Dawdle Slowest” category?

The Bishops Castle Tandem Triathlon is an inclusive event with disabled participants actively encouraged. Fancy dress is optional but all adds to making this a fun event.

Prizes are available for best fancy dress, fastest local team, most visited pub fast, mixed, all female and male team and many more.

In the Bishops Castle Tandem Triathlon there are two bike rides, a swim and a run. There is a 1km swim in leisure centre pool. A 30km Tandem bike ride. A 10km woodland run followed by a 5km Tandem Sprint to the finish.

This year the Bishops Castle Tandem Triathlon does not have a junior race.

Bishops Castle Tandem Triathlon has a £60 entry fee per team. This event is entirely run by volunteers.
