In January Alnwick Tri hosts a Ladies Only GoTri. A Gym based mini tri held at Willowburn in Alnwick especially for female beginners. In 2019, this event has been cancelled due to a pool closure.
GoTri Northumberland at Amble in the 20m pool which is shallow enough to touch the bottom (just) even at the deep end. The bike is a 3 mile out and back route along the flat links road. The run is 1km as 2 x 500m laps of the grass opposite the pool.
24th March 2019
There is a childrens event for 9-13 yr olds and an adult race for those 14+ (all ages are at 31st Dec 2019)
200m pool swim, 3 mile bike on the links road, 1km run on grass
80m pool swim, 1km bike on grass, 500m run on grass
Later in the summer, once the water at Druridge Bay has warmed up, there are a number of open water events held on a Thursday evening to link in when the club trains at the lake. Usually an Aquathlon (Swim, run) and a Triathlon for novice open water triathletes. These events sometimes attract experienced triathletes wanting a mid week hard training session but they have to put up with a rough and ready race as it is designed for beginners. There are no dates for these events in 2016 yet.
