Horwich Festival of Racing is an annual event and this year runs from June 11th to June 16th and includes walking, road and fell running and cycling for adults and juniors and the triathlon is a major part of this festival.

Team Deane Community Triathlon Club are delighted to be involved in the 2019 event, we have been approached to help organise, run, support and promote the triathlon discipline in this year of 2019.

The triathlon is aimed at beginners/novices but athletes of all abilities and experiences are most welcome to enter. 

The triathlon starts at 7am on event day and starts with a 200m pool swim (due to pool constraints we have introduced a very generous time limit of 8 minutes, if competitors reach this limit they will be asked to leave the pool but can still carry on with the bike and run elements of the triathlon). The 8 mile bike element is loops of Horwich town centre on fully closed roads. The challenging 3 mile run is on open footpaths/trails and consists of approx 80% tarmac paths and 20% trail.

Medals to all finishers and prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for both male and female.

Full routes/maps will be displayed on the Horwich of Festival racing: 

The pool to bike transition is a 600m walk/jog via a tarmac path, so athletes are advised to place an old pair of trainers and possibly a t-shirt at pool side ready for this short walk/jog.

Bike discipline is open to any of the following bikes providing they are roadworthy and the riders wear an approved safety cycle helmet:  road bike, TT bike, hybrid or cyclo cross bikes and mountain bikes.  A BTF bike ref will be in attendance in bike transition to check the condition of the bikes and brakes etc.

Entry price includes a BTF race day licence.
