Based around the Druridge Bay Country Park on the beautiful Northumberland coast approximately 3 miles south Amble.
The Alnwick Junior Tri @ Druridge is an openwater triathlon for TS1, TS2, TS3 and Youth age groups.
For the TriStars the event counts towards the North East Junior Grand Prix Series.
The openwater swim takes place in the freshwater Ladyburn lake within the park (wetsuit mandatory). The bike course will take you out along a scenic traffic free tarmac route between the park and the dunes, before you return back to the park to complete the run course around the footpaths and meadow tracks on the south side of the lake.
Your entry of £20 (£21 non-BTF member) includes an event medal and printed T-shirt.
The park offers cafe and toilet facilities, a kids play area to keep the little ones entertained, as well as free parking and easy access to the beautiful beach, perfect for a fun family day out.

Due to the amount of weeds at the water sports entrance of the lake we have decided to move down to the Visitors Centre of the lake for the remaining couple of sessions.
The Junior lake swimming sessions have now ended so no Juniors are permitted to swim in the lake during the club sessions.
Note also the entrance gate will now close at 8pm instead of 9pm.
Another brilliant race at Druridge Bay. The weeds in the lake still seemed to freak some of the competitors out despite clearing 99% of them away just an hour before the race.
The Juniors came out on top again with Dan Dixon winning for the men and Freya Smith winning for the women but everyone won at the end with a full buffet, tea and coffee for all the competitors, spectators and marshals making it a really good social event.
We are pleased to announce we will be hosting a GoTri Triathlon on Thursday the 28th July at Druridge Bay Country Park. Ideal for anyone new to triathlon looking to take part in their first fun, relaxed event. The race will start at 7pm, distances are as follows 300m swim, 10km bike and 2.5km run and a bargain at only £5. To enter follow the link below.
Another fantastic day of racing. The threat of rain put a few people off coming but the 26 that raced had a fabulous time. The marshals were great, cheering everyone on.
The race was put on to give people a bit of practice racing open water before their big races on bank holiday weekend. 8 of the racers are off to Lisbon to the European Tri Champs and a fair few of the other off to Nottingham to compete in the sprint or half iron distance races.
Due to the cold water, the swim was kept close to shore and became a 2 x 200m lap swim to make the 400m. The bike was a quick blast up to Widdrington roundabout and back and the run was a single lap of the lake.
The winners of the male and female races were in the lead from start to finish but the minor places were hotly contested with the positions changing numerous times.
- Dan Dixon 31:56
- Kris Whitelaw 34:01
- James Morris 34:11

- Kim Redpath 40:56
