Still time to take part in triathlon

Have your say

Limited places are still available to take part in next month’s Buxton Triathlon.

Taking place on Sunday July 8, this popular pool-based sprint distance triathlon is aimed at both seasoned triathletes and novices.

The triathlon kicks-off with a 400m swim in Buxton Pool before taking in some stunning scenery on the 21km cycle ride and finishing with a 5km run around the leafy Buxton streets. The competitors start in waves, with the first scheduled for 7am.

Race Director Simon Hill said: “The Buxton Triathlon features some stunning scenery, and it has established itself as a classic race not to be missed.

“The sprint distance means that it is open to triathletes of all levels, and it’s a great entry race for novices.”

Event costs are £42 for individual entries or £55 for team entries, including numbered transition racking, electronic chip timing and a goody bag.


The prize-giving takes place after the event, with prizes awarded in the following categories: overall winners (male and female), male and female age groups, relay team prize, club prize (first three athletes from the same club) and novice prize.

Entries to the BTF-sanctioned Buxton Triathlon close on June 29, or when sold out.

The Buxton Triathlon is part of the Xtra Mile Events Tri Sprint Series with four pool-based triathlons of sprint distance taking place around the North West. Competitors can also register for the Buxton Triathlon as a single event only.
