Brighton and Hove Triathlon has sold out and closed entries early. The event, taking place on Sunday 17th September, will see over 1000 athletes take off from the famous Brighton beach to begin the second Sebamed Brighton and Hove Triathlon.
Competitors will then cycle along the fast, flat, closed-road course before crossing the finish line with a promenade run. The athletes will be racing over various distances , with the shortest beginner distance a 400m swim, 5km bike and 2.5km run.
This year Brighton and Hove Triathlon introduced a children’s triathlon (for 8-14yrs) in partnership with Frog Bikes. This will see over 50 taking parting part on Sunday morning. The Saturday of race weekend will also host the Frog Bikes Mini’s Race whereby over 90 3-8 year olds will scoot, cycle and run along Brighton seafront. With a free to attend family fitness show taking place over the race weekend, it’s set to be another hugely successful event.
Brighton and Hove Triathlon Event Director, John Lunt, commented ‘I’m delighted we have sold out the event. Triathlon continues to go from strength to strength and I’m sure will also fill up in record time next year.’
With over 45% of entries first-time triathletes, 40% female competitors and the inclusion of a Diversity and Inclusion Rainbow Wave (supported by Stonewall) the team have continued to present triathlon as a sport which embraces all.
