South Manchester Triathlon
An awesome first timer event with a safe and clean pool based swim in Wilmslow leisure centre with controlled lanes and seeded starts, which as the day moves on turns into an early season opener for the seasoned triathlete. With something for everyone to make the event go forward it is a perfect day in the calendar.
16 lengths in the pool, get there in plenty of time and watch the swim unfold in front of you.
Undulating but forgiving bike course with a suburban start till you are out on the open roads of Cheshire taking in the villages of Ashley and Mobberley. There are a couple of cheeky climbs to keep you honest but nothing that would overly worry novice / experienced athlete alike. Back to the Leisure centre for the Run
After a quick change you are on the run which takes you down the lovely Bollin Valley. Nothing too steep, nothing too flat, mixed terrain but most trainers will be suited to this environment. Follow the signs and obey the marshall's instructions and you will be through the finish to collect your medal.
